Bank of Hawaii Offers Android Pay to Debit Card Consumers in Hawaii
Wednesday, July 13, 2016
HONOLULU, HAWAII (July 13 , 2016) - Bank of Hawaii now offers its debit card customers, with consumer accounts in the state of Hawaii, access to Android Pay™, allowing people to tap and pay with their Android phone.
With Android Pay, the customer’s card number is never stored on the physical device. When you shop at a merchant, Android Pay doesn’t send your actual credit or debit card number with your payment. Instead, a virtual account number along with a one-time transaction-specific security code is used to process payments.
Bank of Hawaii debit card customers can add Android Pay to their Android phone, running Kit Kat (4.4) or higher, to pay in-stores at two million locations, as well as in your favorite apps. Android Pay uses NFC and HCE (Host Card Emulation) and is available for download at the Google Play Store and comes preinstalled on select Android devices.
