Note: We're aware that people are currently unable to use payments on WhatsApp, and we're working with our partners to restore the service. Please check our website for the latest update.
Your security and privacy are important to us. The payments feature was built with the following security and privacy principles:
- Encryption between your phone and WhatsApp servers keeps your payment information secure.
- Advanced data storage contains multiple layers of hardware and software protection.
- Facebook Pay PIN protection and device biometrics adds extra security before sending money.
- You can only send money from your WhatsApp account once you have provided the correct debit or credit card information and verified that you’re the authorized user.
Note: This information only applies to the payments feature in Brazil.
