He loses the Apple Watch in Disney World and they pay $ 40.000 with his card

Disney World in the United States of America or Disney Land in Europe should be places where magic overflows on all four sides, however, the news that brings us here today is much more turbulent than anyone could have imagined in the house of Mickey Mouse.

A user claims to have lost her Apple Watch at Disney World, later claiming to have received $40.000 in payments with Apple Pay. This event calls into question the security of Apple Pay, however the story has many gaps and Disney has not commented on it.

Apparently, the event took place at Disney World, located in Orlando, Orange County, United States of America. Last April, coinciding with Easter, the user got on the attraction The Seas with Nemo & Friends, wearing his luxurious Apple Watch Hermès, one of the most expensive editions of the Apple Watch you can buy, in this case $1.300. However, and despite the fact that it is an attraction designed specifically for the little ones, so its speed is quite low, he declares that his Apple Watch was fired.

Her husband attempted to retrieve the watch, only to be quickly intercepted by Disney World security, who reminded her of security protocols and assured her that at the end of the day she would be able to pick up her Apple Watch from Lost and Found if it was found. over there. Despite this, Disney did not find the watch, and the user claimed that charges had been made with Apple Pay worth $ 40.000.

The story gets twisted if we take into account that the Apple Watch locks when you remove it from your wrist, so the only possibility for them to have made payments with their device is precisely that their code was too simple and the "evildoer" guessed it. ", or what It's just the umpteenth insurance company fraud story in US history.

    There is a fairly remote chance of unlocking the watch without knowing the code
    In order to do so, certain conditions must be met.
    The first is that the watch is not in lost mode
    The second is that the watch is configured to unlock with the iPhone (something quite common). It would consist of the person who “found” the watch putting it on their wrist and getting close enough to the rightful owner. He would have to wait close enough for it to unlock his iPhone. At that moment the watch would believe that it is on the wrist of the legitimate owner and would be unlocked allowing payments to be made.
