When you use Interac Debit on Samsung Pay, your transactions are protected by the same secure features you rely on to protect your Interac Debit and Interac Flash transactions.
Your debit card number is protected in the Samsung Pay app by device unlock: fingerprint, iris, or PIN. For added security, all transactions will require you to unlock your phone to authenticate your purchase. All transactions go through the Interac Token Service Provider (TSP), a proprietary token platform to ensure the safety and privacy of your financial information.
When you add your Interac debit card to Samsung Pay, your account number is neither stored on the Samsung device nor on Samsung servers. Instead, a unique Virtual Card Number is created for that card on your device. Your Virtual Card Number is used to make purchases using Interac Debit on Samsung Pay, so you can pay in confidence knowing your personal financial information is never shared with merchants.
If your Samsung device is ever lost or stolen, you can use Samsung’s Find My Mobile to remove or lock the debit cards added to Samsung Pay. You can also contact your financial institution to suspend or remove your debit card from Samsung Pay.
