new Delhi. A large number of smartphone users usually buy or update devices that come at a higher price. Equipment manufacturers tie-up with credit card companies and banks to provide long-term payment options to their customers. This makes it easy for them to buy premium smartphones. However, many users of these high-end smartphones default on repayment or fail to pay due to various reasons. The creditor then resorts to recovery measures.

Now the Internet giant Google has reportedly brought an app that will allow banks or credit card companies to block certain functions of the phone in case of default. This application is called Device Lock Controller and is listed on the Play Store under the Google LLC label.

According to the reports, if the users fail to pay any installment, then this app can allow banks or credit card companies to lock the device or close some functions. XDA developers quoted a Google spokesperson as saying that the app was launched in association with Kenyan carrier Safaricom. Google said in a blog post that Safaricom’s new Lipa MDGO MDGo finance plan allows Kenyans to buy a new Android Go Edition smartphone. It will be available on reasonable installments but in the question and answer section of Safaricom it has been said that if a user fails to pay the installment on time, then this carrier can lock the device. There is a provision for device lock after four days have passed after the last date of payment.

Google has said that this app was accidentally put on the Play Store, Google has confirmed that the device lock controller app should not have been listed on the Google Play Store. It has to be seen whether Google will have any tie-up with such an app with credit card companies or banks in India?
