How secure is a Google Pay transaction?

Transactions using Google Pay are secure; Google keeps all payment information on secure servers. Your full card details are never stored on your device or shared with merchants when you use Google Pay. Merchants are only provided with your Virtual Account Number.

When Google Pay is used for transactions, a confirmation appears in the app. This can assist you to detect suspicious activity. This alert shows where the transaction occurred along with the merchant’s name and the amount of the payment or refund.

If you misplace your device, you can use Google’s Find my Device to either lock your device or permanently erase all the data on it to prevent further Google Pay transactions being processed.

My device has been lost or stolen. How can I keep my card in Google Pay safe?
