A safer, more secure, and private way to pay with iPhone and Apple Watch, Helsinki—17.01.2023, — Edenred, the leading provider of employee benefits in Finland, today launches all its benefits to be used with Apple Pay, a safer, more secure, and private way to pay that helps customers and users avoid card misuse and fraud, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash — and uses the power of iPhone to protect every transaction.
Edenred card users simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment. Every Apple Pay purchase is secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode, as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code. Apple Pay is accepted online as well as at all card partners of the Edenred acceptance partner network throughout Finland. Apple Pay makes it easier to pay for lunch, sports and culture, massage, transport, and dental services both off- and online, among other things.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When users use their Edenred Lounari, Virike, Massage, Transport or Dental benefit 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, an industry-standard, certified chip designed to store the payment information safely on the device.
Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply download and open the MyEdenred App, chose the card you want to use with Apple pay, click on “add to Apple Wallet” and follow the steps. Once a user adds a card to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, they can start using Apple Pay on that device right away. Users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by virtual and recycled Edenred pvc cards. For more information on Apple Pay, visit: https://www.apple.com/at/apple-pay/
