Is Google Pay secure for making payments?

Google Pay protects your payment info with multiple layers of security. Your actual card number is replaced with a unique virtual account number, which means businesses do not see or store your full card number.

What is a virtual account number?

Your actual card number is replaced with a unique virtual account number, which means businesses do not see or store your full card number.

Each payment card you set up for in-store payments gets a virtual account number that merchants see when you buy.

Your payment information isn’t shared with merchants when you pay in-store.
