Apple Pay now available to Connex Credit Union’s members offering an easy, secure & private way to pay
NORTH HAVEN, CT (February 4, 2015) – Connex Credit Union, one of Connecticut’s largest credit unions, now offers its members the ability to use Apple Pay, a new category of service that transforms mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay.
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.
“We’re constantly evaluating the latest technology and financial tools for our members,” said Carl Casper, vice president of customer advocacy, Connex Credit Union. “Apple Pay offers Connex members the convenience of a secure, quick and easy way to make purchases.”
In participating stores, 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.
