Android Pay: A Convenient New Way to Pay

As an Android* user, you can now pay with your phone at more than 1 million stores across the U.S. Android Pay is a new mobile payment solution that offers Navy Federal debit and credit card holders further simplicity, security and choice when paying for things every day.

Making payments is safe when you use Android Pay, thanks to tokenization, the industry standard for secure payments. Your card number isn't stored on your phone or given to the merchant with your payment. Instead, Android Pay uses a virtual account number to represent your account information–providing an extra layer of security.

To add your Navy Federal debit or credit cards to Android Pay:

  1. Download the Android Pay app and open it.
  2. Take a photo of your card.
  3. You're done!

It’s that simple. When you’re ready to pay, unlock your phone as usual and hold it over the merchant’s contactless payment terminal.
