In today's digital age, the use of cash for transactions is becoming less and less common. With the rise of mobile payments and digital wallets, people are now able to make purchases easily and conveniently with their smartphones.

Since nearly everyone carries their mobile device everywhere, adding your credit or debit card information to your digital wallet allows you to carry less and pay easily. Learn more about how you can add your Apple FCU Visa® Credit or Debit card to your digital wallet below!

Devices and Their Digital Wallets

Depending on your device, you can use various digital wallets like Apple Pay®, Google Pay or Samsung Pay®.

Not all merchants are equipped to accept digital wallets, so you'll still need to carry a backup payment method.

Are Digital Wallets Safe?

From a data perspective, digital wallets use a process called tokenization, which randomizes your credit card data into a string of numbers and letters. In the event of a data breach at a merchant, a potential hacker would only gain access to the token for that transaction and not your actual card information. This makes shopping with a digital wallet a safer experience.
