Few months back we have highlighted the security flaw in Mobicash about cash deposit in mobile account. Mobilink took it seriously and now the new security feature has been adopted.
Previously, the Mobicash customers can directly send money into their mobile account without any PIN verification. And due to that many retailer’s sent wrongly by mistake and their account has been suspended or blocked. But now Mobicash announced and asked their customer to enter MPIN at the time of cash deposit. It’s same like Easypaisa, when retailer enter your number for cash deposit you will get PIN which you show to retailer and when he entered that PIN the successful transaction has been made.
Here is the SMS received by Mobilink Mobicash customers for new security feature.
“Moaziz Sarif, kal se Mobile Account mein raqam jama kerne k liye aap se MPIN mangi jaey gi. Raqam jama kerwatey hue apne phone ki screen unlock rakhen. Shukriya”
It’s not only save retailers for wrong transaction but also helpful for Mobicash in revenue generation. Without any PIN customers can easily by pass transaction charges by sending or depositing directly into other party’s account.
