A more secure way to pay
every day.

With security built in to protect you before, during, and after every payment, using Google Pay is safer than swiping your card or paying with cash.

Keep your payment info secure

Keep your payment info secure

When you tap to pay, Google Pay sends a Virtual Account Number to the merchant instead of your actual card number – so your payment info stays secure.

Built-in protection before you pay

Built-in protection before you pay

Set up a screen lock to add an extra layer of security with Google Pay. You’ll need to unlock your device with a personal PIN,* pattern, or fingerprint before you can tap to pay – so your purchases are more protected.

*Unlock requirements vary by country.

Extra security for money you send

Extra security for money you send

Set a PIN to add extra security for money you send to friends. You’ll enter the PIN before the money actually leaves your account – so you can always be sure you’re the one sending money.

Lock your phone from anywhere

Lock your phone from anywhere

If your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can use Google Find My Device to remotely lock it, log out of your Google Account, or erase your data. This keeps your payment info safe.
