Samsung Pay won’t work on rooted devices

Samsung logoSamsung Pay was announced back in March this year alongside the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, the payment service supports both near field communication (NFC) and magnetic secure transmission (MST) which allow merchants to accept payments using Samsung Pay without having to purchase any costly equipment. The company has started a live trial of the service on a limited scale in South Korea and those who are looking forward to using it should keep in mind that Samsung Pay won’t work if you have rooted your device.

Samsung Pay won’t work on rooted devices

It has not been confirmed as yet precisely when Samsung Pay is going to be launched in South Korea and the United States, it could happen next month alongside the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ launch. Once the service goes live in the launch markets Samsung will then work on expanding it to other markets across Europe and China. Users will have to ensure that their devices are not rooted or else they will not be able to use Samsung Pay, if a user with a rooted device does try using Samsung Pay they will be presented with an error message which prompts them that “Samsung Pay has been locked due to unauthorized modification.” This means that users will have to choose between the two, either they can keep their rooted device or give that up for the luxury of paying through their Samsung smartphone.
