What’s so good about Apple Pay? First, it is convenient. Even if you forget the wallet cash and Bank cards at home, you can always pay using your iPhone. Secondly, it is safe. Not only that, Apple Pay encrypts your card details, replacing it with a unique token, and requires verification of payment using fingerprints or faces. However, there is another confirmation method code-a password spy which can absolutely anyone.
According to TASS, today, in the center of Moscow unknown stole iPhone the Director General of the fashion house Chanel, Jacques Marie Daniel Senena. But as it turned out, the goal was not a smartphone and its associated payment service Apple Pay, which the thief had used to seize the money of the victim. He spied the password with which the top Manager confirmed the purchase, and it made purchases totaling more than two million rubles.
How to return the money to Apple Pay
Despite the fact that Chenin has addressed in law enforcement bodies, the decoupling story is not yet received, because it takes some time. But, most likely, the money spent by the thief using Apple Pay, will return to their rightful owner as soon as the theft is confirmed under investigation and the Bank will receive appropriate directives.
Touch ID or Face ID
What happened with the CEO of the fashion house Chanel, once again confirms that the password is perhaps one of the least reliable ways of protection. Much better from this point of view, the face or the fingerprint. Already some hunters for easy money just will not be able to forge and, therefore, will not be able not to take control of your money, but even to remove a stolen iPhone with the lock. And to find it with the release of iOS 13 will be easy.
