Does anyone know if apple pay will work through cases? I wonder if apple pay will be safer than sliding your credit cards?

Without getting into the topic of card skimmers. Nothing can beat hardware security. Also. In response to your nfc or apple pay. Nfc works up to 10cm away
 
It's not going to be affected by plastic, vinyl, or leather. Metal might be another issue. But we're only talking about a few inches distance, so the signal doesn't have to go very far.

From what I've been reading Apple Pay should be much more secure than a credit card. They say that because of the security chip generating a unique code with each transaction it's the equivalent of using a different, new, credit card number each time.
