HOW TO USE IT

Samsung Pay can be used in most outlets where contactless payments are accepted – including on Transport for London (TfL) services.

To use Samsung Pay, users must swipe up from the bottom edge of their screen to bring up the last used credit or debit card.

They can then use either their iris or fingerprint to prove their identity, and tap the device on a payment terminal to make a payment. 

Samsung Pay is available on the Galaxy S8/S8+, S7/S7 edge, S6/S6 edge (via software update). 

Samsung says that more partners, including American Express will be available soon.

Conor Pierce, Vice President of the IT & Mobile Division of Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland, said: ‘Since launching in the UK last month, Samsung Pay has provided our UK users with a simple and secure payment method that can be used almost anywhere they can use their contactless payment cards.’

To make sure the system is secure, Samsung uses an encrypted digital token to replace sensitive card information.

Additionally, Samsung’s Knox security platform is built into the hardware and software of the device, which ensures mobile information and data is secure.

This provides real-time protection and monitors malicious software and activities on your device for added security.
