These products are underwritten by regulator-authorized financial institutions and made available to users through the Google Pay platform. They also form the foundation of Google Pay’s Digital Pragati initiative, aimed at growing economic opportunities for every Indian.

Google has also launched ‘DigiKavach’ to combat online financial fraud in India. To truly harness the transformative power of digital, ensuring the safety and security of every individual online becomes not just a necessity but an imperative.

DigiKavach is Google’s concerted effort to combat online financial fraud at scale. This programme is studying the modus operandi of scammers, developing and implementing countermeasures to new emerging scams, and responsibly sharing these insights with experts and partners to collectively help create a safer and more secure digital ecosystem for all.

Google has collaborated with the ‘Fintech Association for Consumer Empowerment’ and onboarded them as a priority flagger to combat predatory digital lending apps on the Play Store in India. ‘FACE’ will support Google with market intelligence to inform detection and enable swift action against personal loan apps in India that are non-compliant with the Play Store’s policies.
