How to Remove Credit or Debit Cards From Samsung Pay

One way to disable Samsung Pay is to remove any credit or debit cards connected to your account. Samsung Pay will still be available, but with no cards connected to the account, you won't be able to use it. You can always reconnect your cards to Samsung Pay if you change your mind.
