Google makes Android Pay work with mobile banking apps around the world

 

Google has integrated its Android Pay service with mobile banking apps around the world in a bid to make it easier for users to use their cards with Android Pay.

The tech giant has joined up with Bank of America, Bank of New Zealand, Discover, mBank and USAA – enabling customers at these banks to add cards to Android Pay from their mobile banking app. Once cards have been added, Android Pay can be used to tap and pay via the user’s smartphone, and through certain apps and mobile websites. Android Pay sends notifications after each successful transaction.

In addition, select mobile banking apps will provide access to the capabilities of Android Pay – even if the users doesn’t have the Android Pay app installed.

“This latest collaboration with banks expands Android Pay’s capabilities as an open platform, and moves us closer toward our goal of empowering mobile payments everywhere,” said Pali Bhat, global head of payment products at Google, in a blog post. “We’re continuing to integrate with additional mobile banking apps.”

VPN or Proxy? Navigating Privacy Tools

VPN or Proxy? Navigating Privacy Tools

 

With new developments in privacy and security, staying private while online has been a topic which has recently created a lot of attention. With the introduction of legislation’s such as the Investigatory Powers Bill, which was launched in the UK last November, and allows the government to hack into people’s computers, the Australian government have tightened the rules of accessing many websites, and most recently, the U.S. gave Internet Service Providers the right to collect and sell user data without their consent.

With all these changes people around the world have started to get concerned about their privacy, this has led them to start researching tools that could help them stay private. These tools are VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) and proxies.

NordVPN, a VPN service provider, has noticed their user inquiries triple after the latest development in the U.S., which gave ISPs the right to freely sell user data. Overall, Google searches for VPN increased by a quarter after US Congress decided to cast away ISP privacy rules. Similar trend were noticed after each change in privacy rules around the world: for example, when Australia strengthened copyright infringement rules, VPNs saw a 500% surge in subscriptions.

While most people realize that they need to protect their privacy online, they often wonder which privacy tool they should choose – a VPN or a proxy – and whether it will be easy enough to use.
