    I'm having an issue with Apple Pay on my 2018 13" MBP. In the Apple Pay settings, it says "Apple Pay has been disabled because the security settings of this Mac were modified". This is a relatively new machine, and I did a clean install a week ago. The secure boot settings are on "Full", and I haven't changed any other security settings. Everything is up to date.

    The only apps I've installed outside the App Store are Adobe Creative Cloud, Office 365, and Xerox printer drivers.

    Has anyone run into this issue?

    Thanks.

    I've solved the issue. Turns out you have to have "Install system data files and security updates" checked in the Advanced section of the Software Update System Preferences panel. I had turned it off because I often tether, and didn't want my Mac downloading files automatically. Once I rechecked it, Apple Pay started working again.

    Have you found a fix for this? I'm now experiencing this. Between the time when Apple Pay worked, I had installed Bitdefender (Mac) and Windows 10 (Boot Camp), but I'm hoping it's not caused by either. I've also followed Apple's instruction regarding the Startup Security Tool and the options in Software Update, and still nothing...

    no fix. the only thing I did install before this problem was Volta, which messes with the SIP security settings, and I still have it enabled for better battery control. I have a feeling that is what is causing the issue.

    Thanks for the update! It’s strange that no warning is shown when something is installed that can change security settings that can also disable Apple Pay.

    I plan to contact Apple and will report back if it’s fixed.

    Yep, I do have a password. Strangely enough, I noticed last week that wallet works again. No change was made, so not sure how it fixed itself...
