Apple Pay Now Available to BB America’s Customers
Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay
 
Miami, FL – March 15, 2016 – Banco do Brasil Americas now offers to its customers access to Apple Pay, a new category of service that will transform mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay.
In an effort to provide the best service for its customers around the world, BB Americas has been investing in technologies to improve the customer experience in a digital platform. Following this strategy, the bank is proud to be among the leading banks in the US to offer the Apple Pay solutions for its customers. 
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code, instead of using the security code from the back of your card.
“BB Americas is proud to be at the forefront of digital payments, offering our customers the convenience they desire within a secure framework” said Pamela Kohl, Executive Vice President – Chief Products Officer.
Apple Pay will work with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch, upon availability. Within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
