- To login to the application, use only a mobile phone with regularly updated anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and to make payments, use only data services provided by a mobile operator or a secure Wi-Fi network.
- In your mobile phone, do not run and do not open unknown attachments and Internet links contained in the body of unwanted e-mails and e-mails from unknown senders.
- Use of the Wave 2 Pay application is not allowed on mobile devices with modified software - the so-called “root" or "jailbreak".
- Do not use multiple products using the contactless technology in one mobile device, besides products maintained in the Mobile Wallet.

Activation and payment
Download the application and see if your device supports mobile payments
- You have to apply for setting up and issuance of activation elements at any branch of VUB Bank, or you can do so easily from the comfort of your home via Internet/Mobile Banking.
- The application is activated with the activation key specified in the contact and the activation code that we will send you via SMS.

You can login to the application with your PIN for example while waiting in line at a cash desk. After confirming "Click and pay”, green text “Ready to pay” will appear. From this moment you have approximately three minutes to make a payment; just put the smartphone to the payment terminal and make the payment.
