Farmers National Bank offering customers access to Apple Pay mobile app

CANFIELD — Farmers National Bank is offering its customers access to Apple Pay, a mobile app.

This new option gives the bank’s customers a fast and secure way to make payments, according to a bank news release. Customers can set up the mobile-payment service by adding their Farmers Debit Card to Apple Pay.

When adding a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device or on Apple servers.

Instead, a unique device account number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the “secure element” on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique security code, instead of using the security code from the back of your card.
