Leap Top-up App Compatibility

TFI Leap Card is committed to delivering services compliant to the highest security standards. In order to comply with the recommendations of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council, LeapCard.ie and the Leap Top-up app will now only support Transport Layer Security 1.2 (TLS1.2) protocols for credit card payments, effective from May 2018.

What does this mean?

Devices with a version of Android prior to Android 5.0 (Lollipop) are not compatible with TLS1.2 protocols and, as a result, the Leap Top-up app will no longer work on these devices.

You can still top-up your TFI Leap Card in the following ways:

  1. Setting up Auto Top-up
  2. At TFI Leap Card payzone outlets
  3. At Luas, DART & Commuter Rail ticket machines
  4. Online; but please note, if you Top-Up online, you still have to collect your Travel Credit or ticket at either a TFI Leap Card outlet or another nominated load location.


The Leap Top-up App is available for NFC-enabled Android phone only. Click here for more information about the app.
