Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Apple Pay?A:
Apple Pay is a contactless payment technology that lets you make secure purchases with your Bank of Canton debit and credit cards in stores, in apps, and online, using just your iPhone® or compatible Apple® device.
Q: How does Apple Pay work?A:
First, you enter your Bank of Canton debit and/or credit card details into your digital Wallet app. Once we’ve authorized the card, you can then use Apple Pay to make electronic payments from your Bank of Canton account wherever Apple Pay is accepted.
Q: What makes Apple Pay so secure?A:
When you pay with Apple Pay, your card details aren’t shared with the merchant. Instead, they’re replaced with a unique Device Account Number & your Touch ID or passcode. Apple doesn’t retain your card info on its servers or on your device, so your payments and payment history remain secure and private.

Apple Pay can be used wherever contactless payment are accepted. If you’re not sure if a merchant accepts Apple Pay, just ask.

- If your Bank of Canton card is your default card, put your finger on the Touch ID® to pay.
- If your Bank of Canton card is not your default card, tap your cards and switch to your Bank of Canton card. Then put your finger on the Touch ID to pay.
The display will show a checkmark and the word “Done” once the transaction is complete.
Apple Watch®: Double-click the side button to make your default card appear. Swipe left or right to change cards. Once your Bank of Canton card is showing, hold it 1″ from the reader, and you’ll feel a small vibration once the transaction is complete.

Q: How do I register my debit card with SecurLOCK Equip?A:
Q: How do I use SecurLOCK Equip?A:
You can begin using it immediately. Practice by turning your card off and on: by turning the card off, the little green button in the top right corner of the card image will turn to red. This means that all transactions (expect for recurring) will be declined. Turn the card back on, and the button turns green again. It’s that easy to turn your card off and on. Now you have the ultimate control to combat fraud.
After you become comfortable with the on/off function, you can start selectively setting controls and alerts by channel (in-store, online, mobile, ATM, etc.). You can also set transaction spend limits, geographic locations where the card can be used, and merchant categories. You can view recent transaction history, establish real-time alerts, and much more. Tap the “i” information icons throughout the app for more information about the app’s features and settings.
Q: Does SecurLOCK Equip control all the security settings on my card?A:
The features of SecurLOCK Equip add another layer of security on top of the bank’s ongoing fraud monitoring service. Transactions that trigger the bank’s fraud monitoring service may still be declined, even if your SecurLOCK settings do not prohibit them.
Q: I received a new card number. Will it be automatically updated in the app?A:
You will have to add the new account to the app. This can be done by going to Manage Account and adding the card. Be sure to “unmanage” the old card.
Q: Who do I contact with questions about SecurLOCK Equip?A:
Call 888-828-1690 or send us a secure message, and a Bank of Canton representative will be happy to assist you.
