What if I lose my phone? Is my information safe?

If someone gains access to your phone and you are logged into your Amtrak account, purchases cannot be made without also having your credit card information, but they would be able to see and potentially modify reservations.
Can I use this app without a network connection?

In order to maintain the most accurate information and access all functionality, a cellular or WiFi network connection is required.
What if I lose my network connection during a transaction?
