Kisi iOS users may notice that Apple Pay will sometimes activate when tapping their iPhone at a Kisi Reader. This is a harmless, albeit potentially unexpected, behavior resulting from how iPhones react to NFC readers.
Users may apply a simple workaround that will prevent this from happening on their own phone:
- Open your iPhone's "Settings" app.
- Tap on "Face ID & Passcode".
- Authenticate with your face ID or passcode, and then scroll down to the section "Allow Access When Locked" and set "Wallet" to disabled
This should now prevent Apple Pay from opening when scanning your iPhone at the reader, as long as the phone is locked.
Recently Apple introduced the possibility to use Apple Wallet for access control. Read Kisi's guide for unlocking the door with Apple Wallet.
