Rooting your Galaxy S6 or S6 edge will disable Samsung Pay

Samsung logoSamsung Pay launched with the Galaxy S6 duo with certifications from Visa and MasterCard, plus collaborations with various large banks around the world. The service is secured by Samsung KNOX though and that gets disabled when you root your phone.

Samsung Pay не будет работать на Galaxy S6 с root-правами

This means rooting will disable the Samsung Pay service. KNOX has been around for a while now and people eventually found a way to root a Galaxy S5 without tripping the KNOX detection, but there's no such method for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge yet.

Still, root allows you to give apps additional privileges and access to Android's internals, which may compromise the security of Samsung Pay. We wouldn’t want to risk leaving our wallets exposed like that, so if you plan on trying Samsung's mobile payment system you'll have to go without root.
