How to Remove a Card From Apple Pay

If you use apple pay, then your credit card details are stored on your phone, so you can make payments from your device without having to carry a wallet. It's also a very secure system, with the card information encrypted and protected by your passcode or biometrics, as well as being stored in a secure chip on your device. That said, if you lose or change a card, or it gets compromised, then it's a good idea to remove it from the system as soon as possible. This article will show you how to do it, using the Wallet app or Settings on your iPhone.

The simplest way to remove a card from apple pay is to open the Wallet app and scroll down to the bottom of your collection of passes (these are the items you can buy things with, like airline tickets, movie tickets etc). Tap on the pass you want to delete, and then click on the round red button that appears in its place. This will remove it from your Wallet, so it can't be used to make a payment in the future.

You can also remove cards and passes from the Wallet app in the Settings menu. This is useful if you've got several different cards on file, or if you want to delete the same card across all devices that you use Apple Pay on. Just be aware that if you remove a card from the Wallet app in your Settings menu, it will also be removed from your other devices, including your Apple Watch.
