Stereotype #04: I must change my mobile phone one more time to use mobile payment!

Simon, Student: “I must change my mobile phone one more time to use mobile payment”

Eli BOMAJED: “This is less and less true. If you bought your smartphone after 2013 and if you have an Android phone embarking the NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, then your smartphone is eligible for mobile payment. Then, for security reasons, banks can decide to exclude some phones or some configurations, in particular phones that are called “rooted” or those in “debug” mode, because they don’t respond to a sufficient level of security for a payment service.
Regarding Apple phones, all the models released after the iPhone 6, allow to pay in NFC, provided that your bank took the necessary measures with Apple.”
