How secure is an Apple Pay® transaction?

Answer

Your Extraco Banks Discover Debit Card in Apple Pay is protected by “Touch ID”, "Face ID" and/or your device “Passcode.” For your security, when you make a purchase using Apple Pay, you must either use “Touch ID”, "Face ID" or the “Passcode” for your device. All of your payment information will be encrypted in the Secure Element, a dedicated chip in your device.
