No. Samsung does not store your personal/payment information on a Samsung server or the device.
Samsung Pay uses leading edge tokenization and authentication methods to secure payment information. Samsung Pay also uses biometrics as a security measure, enabling users to authenticate Samsung Pay via fingerprint or Secured PIN. In addition to the security measures implemented by Samsung Pay, Samsung’s KNOX service constantly monitors suspicious activity within the device to protect from any malicious attacks.
Tokenization is a method of replacing your sensitive payment card information (Card Number, Expiration Date, Security code, etc.) with a device-specific ‘Token’ which acts as an alias for the actual card information. In mobile payments, tokens are used to protect card information from being compromised and they make mobile payments safe.
You would need to register your cards again if you were to change your phone as no data will be stored in the application.
If your device is lost or stolen, you can use Samsung’s Find My Mobile service to Lock Samsung Pay (remotely disable) or to Wipe Samsung Pay (remove all the payment cards registered onto your device). If you are unable to do this, call our Customer Contact Centre at 1860 266 2666 (local charges applicable) to block your cards registered on Samsung Pay.

Yes. When you disable Samsung Pay or remove a registered card, you are only suspending the token or digital card number that has been assigned to your device for that card. If you wish to suspend your physical card, please contact customer care.
