How do I keep Google Pay™ secure?

Google Pay is secure. When you add a card, your card details are replaced with a virtual account number. Your card details are not stored on the device or disclosed and transmitted when you make a payment with Google Pay.

Here are some additional tips to stay safe:

  • Only download apps from the official Google Play Store
  • Keep your device's operating system updated with latest updates
  • Think carefully before tampering with the security of your device
  • Only use known and trusted Wi-Fi networks
  • Don't share your device unlock code or payment card details with anyone and don't store them on your device
  • Don't leave your phone unattended in a public area
