Mumbai police asks Google to tweak play store policy

The Mumbai Police has reportedly asked tech giant Google to bring additional safeguards and tweak its Play Store policy to curb the misuse of the app store by dubious loan apps.

The city police found that the app developers and fintech companies that floated instant loan apps with Chinese links exploited a number of loopholes in the Play Store.

The representatives of Google India were called for a meeting with Mumbai Police in which the tech giant was asked to tighten its systems to curb instant loan apps with Chinese links.

“During the course of the probe, it was found that there were certain loopholes in their system which were exploited by the accused while using Google to host either their links or mobile-based applications,” a senior police officer was quoted as saying in the report.

Google has been asked not to allow the platform to be used by lenders who offer instant loans for fewer than 62 days. Inc42
