Is Google Pay Safe?
Making payments is safe when you use Google 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, Google Pay uses a virtual account number to represent your account information–providing an extra layer of security.
How Do I Set Up Google Pay?
First, download the Google Pay app from the Google Play™ Store. If your Navy Federal card is already linked to your Google account, you can simply add it to the Google Pay app by confirming a few details. To add a new card, it’s as simple as snapping a picture.

When I add my Navy Federal card to Google Pay, it doesn't look like the card in my wallet. Why?
Google Pay uses a graphical representation, not an exact replica of your Navy Federal card. Navy Federal credit and debit cards are color coded like this:
- Red = consumer debit card
- Blue = consumer credit card
- Grey = business debit card
- Black & green = business credit card
