Payment Protection is an additional layer designed to protect your financial data on Android devices against advanced phishing and other threats. Payment Protection prevents other applications from noticing the launch of your protected applications and prevents them from replacing information or reading on-screen information from your protected application.

After activating Payment Protection, it will automatically add some banking and payment applications to the list of protected applications.

2.Tap Manage.

3.Select applications you want to protect by Payment Protection.
