With tokenization, the retailer receives a newly-generated, 16-digit virtual number instead of your actual account number. So, should there be a major credit card data breach at a retailer, you’ll at least know your card is safe.
Android Pay’s tokenization is different from Apple Pay’s in that tokens aren’t generated in a secure chip within the phone but rather within the cloud. Android Pay also works at the places without internet, the application will still be able to access some tokens that are stored on your mobile devices, allowing you pay for your goods.
