U.S. Bank has added Masterpass support for Android users, joining a growing number of banks that have adopted the digital wallet for in-store and in-app purchases.

Customers with an Android device may link any payment card to the digital wallet, which uses tokenization to protect card data, and tap to pay at merchants with contactless payment technology, Mastercard said in a Wednesday press release.

“Our customers can know…they are paying with trusted technology, whether they are a small business buying equipment at an office supply store or a family of four dining at their favorite neighborhood restaurant,” said Clifford Cook, U.S. Bank’s head of product and marketing, retail payments services division, in the release.

Mastercard last summer announced an overhaul of Masterpass expanding its capabilities so consumers could shop across more devices and channels.
