Facebook Pay provide people with a convenient, secure and consistent payment experience across Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp. When it comes to payments, security and privacy are paramount. That’s why Facebook take extra steps to protect your payment information.
You can set up Facebook Pay app-by-app or choose to set it up for use across apps (where available). That means they won’t automatically set up Facebook Pay across the apps you are active on, unless you choose to do so.
You can also choose to add a PIN or use your device biometrics, such as touch or face ID recognition, to add an extra layer of security when sending money or making a payment. Facebook will not receive or store your device’s biometric information.
Who sees my information and activity?
Only you can see your payment and transaction history within Facebook Pay. Your activity, such as payments or purchases, will not be shared with your friends or to your profile or feed, unless you choose to share it.
When buying from a business on Instagram or Facebook Marketplace, we’ll share only the information needed to support the transaction, such as shipping and contact details, with merchants.
