Batelco offers safer, secure Apple Pay option for customers

MANAMA, October 11, 2021

Bahrain's leading telecom services operator Batelco has introduced the new Apple Pay, a safer, more secure and private way to make payments, thus helping customers avoid handing their payment card to someone else, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash.
The telecom operator uses the power of iPhone to protect every transaction of its customers.
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, said the statement from Batelco. 
Batelco’s customers with Apple devices can now access Apple Pay through the Batelco App and use the service to pay for their packages, recharge prepaid lines and other Batelco services.
"Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add credit or debit cards. Once a customer adds a card to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, they can start using Apple Pay on that device right away," said a company spokesman. 
"Customers can also use Apple Pay on iPhone, iPad, and Mac to make faster and more convenient purchases in apps or on the web in Safari without having to create accounts or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information," he stated.  
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When customers use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers, said the spokesman. 
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, he added.
