Get help if your device is lost or stolen

To use Apple Pay, you need to authorize each credit, debit, or prepaid card purchase with Face ID, Touch ID, or your passcode. Or on Apple Watch when Wrist Detection is on, you need to enter your passcode every time you put on your Apple Watch. These features help prevent other people from using Apple Pay on your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac.

Go to your Apple ID account page or use Find My iPhone to suspend or permanently remove the ability to pay from that device with Apple Pay. On your Apple ID account page, sign in and click your device. In the information that appears, go to the Apple Pay section and click either Remove or Remove all. Your card or cards will be suspended or removed from Apple Pay even if your device is offline and not connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network.

You can also call your issuer to suspend or remove your cards from Apple Pay. Learn more about what to do if your iPhone is lost or stolen.
