Is Apple Card secure?
Apple has emphasized on four ways they are keeping it secure.
1st Point: When anyone first gets his Apple Card, a unique device number is created on his iPhone. Then it’s locked away in the secure element.
2nd Point: Whenever you start a process to purchase anything this will require a device number along with a one-time dynamic security code that iPhone generates when you authorize a purchase.
3rd Point: This card doesn’t have any number on it, not even a CVV. So, this makes it more secure. And you don’t need to worry when you hand over your card to anyone while shopping or eating anything from a restaurant.
4th Point: This is very secure because even Apple is not knowing what you have purchased and from where. Just Goldman Sachs tracks your record and they are not authorized to share or sell your data to third parties for advertisements.
