Are You A Google Pay User? You Must Delete These Apps Immediately
Google Pay, a leading UPI payment app in India, holds a significant market share, ranking among the top 5 in the country. India stands out as a crucial market for Google Pay, where the app utilizes advanced Artificial Intelligence and fraud prevention technology to identify and combat suspicious transactions in real-time.
Google actively collaborates with industry partners to bolster technological defenses, prioritizing user safety.
In the realm of digital transactions, security is a shared responsibility, and Google emphasizes the need for user vigilance. The company has issued crucial guidelines on its website, highlighting a key precaution: users are advised against utilizing screen sharing apps during Google Pay transactions.
Screen sharing apps, such as Screen Share, AnyDesk, and TeamViewer, grant external access to a device’s screen, potentially compromising sensitive information.
The caution stems from the potential exploitation of screen sharing apps by fraudsters. These bad actors could seize control of a user’s device, facilitating unauthorized transactions, accessing crucial banking details, and intercepting One-Time Passwords (OTPs) sent for verification.
Google reiterates its policy of never instructing users to download third-party apps and urges users to exercise caution if faced with such requests.
Users are specifically warned that Google Pay does not mandate the download or installation of third-party apps for any reason. In the event of unintentional downloads, Google advises prompt closure and uninstallation of such apps.
Users are further encouraged to report any suspicious activity to Google Pay, ensuring a swift response to maintain the security and integrity of Google Pay transactions in the evolving landscape of digital payments.Facebook or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
