What happens if my Android phone is lost or stolen?

There are 4 main options if your Android phone is lost or stolen:

Lock your Android Phone

Using Android Device Manager you can place a lock on your phone. This will stop your Android phone being used to make payments without your unlocking code being entered on the phone. This will mean that if you find your phone you can unlock your phone to use Android Pay. Your phone will need to have network connectivity for the lock to be applied. This will allow you to continue to use your plastic card.

Remote Factory Reset of your Android Phone

Using Android Device Manager you can perform a remote factory reset of your Android phone. This will clear all content from your phone including your Virtual Account Number. Your phone will need to have network connectivity for the lock to be applied. This will allow you to continue to use your plastic card.
