Making payments is safe when you use Android Pay, thanks to tokenization, the industry standard for secure payments. Your card number isn’t stored on your phone or given to the merchant with your payment. Instead, Android Pay uses a virtual account number to represent your account information–providing an extra layer of security.
Getting Started is Simple
Android Pay works with any NFC-enabled Android device running KitKat 4.4 and up.
- Download or update the Android Pay app. Android Pay comes preloaded on several devices. If your phone doesn’t have the app, download it from Google Play.
- Add your First Service Visa card—it’s as simple as snapping a photo.
- Pay confidently at over a million locations in the U.S.
How to Shop with Android Pay
- Make sure the store accepts Android Pay by looking for the Android Pay or contactless payment symbol at checkout.
- Unlock your phone and hold it near the contactless payment terminal.
- A slight vibration or beep confirms that your payment has been made.
