Apple Pay touted as safer than credit cards in three new ads
Apple today shared three new ads highlighting the security benefits of Apple Pay on the iPhone over physical credit cards.
The short ads point out that physical credit cards can be stolen, used by anyone, and leave your card number exposed to other people. The message behind the ads is that all of these security risks of using credit cards can be avoided by using Apple Pay.
Apple shared the videos on its UK YouTube channel – the videos have not yet been uploaded in the US or other countries.
Apple Pay is at the center of a new class action lawsuit filed against Apple in California this week. Complaint alleges Apple violates U.S. antitrust law by blocking rivals from accessing NFC technology on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, preventing availability of competing tap-to-pay payment services on their devices.
