    I just got two emails from American Express that says my Apple Pay cards were removed. I didn't do anything, it was just automatically received. Did anyone else get this email?

    My card was automatically removed when I had to restore my iPhone (for an unrelated reason). I had to add it again.

    Mine, too. When I erased everything (release all content and settings) amEx notified my my card was removed.

    Same here. After I restored I got the email from a couple of my banks saying the same thing.

    Yep.

    Clean install, restore install: cards are wiped from device.
    Turn off passcodes: cards are wiped from device.

    Maybe even when erase all finger prints as well.

    Yes, pain in the behind, but a good thing from a security angle.

    Actually deleted all my fingerprints today and re-did them, did not wipe my cards.

    I just received my 6+ last night and I couldn't even add my Amex card without calling it in to them first. Security is great

    Logged out of iCloud and had to re-authorize my card.

    Interesting. My AmEx card didn't require any extra step. But it is the card linked to my AppleID.

    My Chase MC required a validation code that I received by text. Maybe there was an option to call.

    The Amex card is not my primary card.

    Your cards are invalidated when:

    • When the passcode is disabled
    • The user logs out of iCloud
    • The user selects Erase All Content and Settings
    • The device is restored from recovery mode
