Mobile payments like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay convert your debit card into a digital token. This allows merchants to accept in-store and online payments and transactions to be initiated with mobile devices via that token through a contactless payment or NFC technology.
Contactless payments are transactions that use chip-based technology and require no physical connection between the payment device (a card or mobile device) and the physical merchant terminal.
Near Field Communication (NFC) technology enables devices in close proximity to communicate. Payment transactions using NFC technology require a contactless merchant terminal and an NFC-enabled mobile device.
The safety and security of your account information is of the highest importance.
As a security measure, you may receive a “verification required” message when adding your card to any of these payment solutions. Once verified, an on-screen message will appear stating that the card is ready for use. This verification is part of our multi-layered approach to security in payments.
When you make payments using a mobile wallet: Your full card number is not shown to the merchant. And all transactions are monitored by our risk and fraud detection systems.
Additionally, consumers will be required to set up a passcode or Touch ID for their device. You will need to unlock your phone to make most purchases.
- For Apple Users: Find the Wallet App on the Home Screen > Add Credit or Debit Card
- For Samsung Users: Navigate to and touch Apps > Samsung Pay and Install
- For Android Users: Navigate to the Google Play store and Install the Android App
Depending on several factors, certain cardholders may receive this message during enrollment. This is a risk mitigation process that requires additional authentication. The consumers that are redirected must manually confirm their identities before their card can be added to the service. Cardholder identity will be verified against cardholder information stored on the payment platform. Once identify is confirmed, the service will be activated. The number for this verification process is 1-844-590-5256. Please note: This number may be noted on your device or app in reference to verification of your card, such as ‘Contact First United Bank & Trust’ or ‘Call your bank’.
As the cardholder, you may be asked for the last transaction made with the card they are trying to set up, along with the purchase amount and either the date or merchant name. Additionally, you may be asked for the last four (4) digits of your social security number, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, home telephone number, expiration date of your card and/or zipcode. You are able to call back and verify your information at a later date if you are unsure of information for an answer.
