Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit
or debit card to Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on
the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account
Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element
on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique
dynamic security code.
How To Add a Discover Card to Apple Pay
After upgrading for free to iOS 9, Discover cardmembers can go to the
Wallet app to get started. If cardmembers already have a Discover card
on file with iTunes, all they need to do is enter the security code, or
they can choose to add a new Discover Card.
