Paytm is forcing users to uninstall TeamViewer, AnyDesk apps to prevent fraud
Posted On : Wednesday, February 5, 2020, 6:09 AM
Paytm is asking users to uninstall apps like TeamViewer and AnyDesk. Recently, it was reported that fraudsters were able to con a Paytm customer based in Mumbai about Rs 1,72,000 by simply asking them to update their KYC details. When the victim tried to upload his KYC details, he was asked to download the TeamViewer app. In the midst of fraud and spams, Paytm is now taking matters in its own hands and blocking its customers from using the service as long as they have TeamViewer installed on their phones. As a result of the recent fraud, Paytm’s developers have blacklisted multiple TeamViewer apps. Paytm is now suggesting users uninstall the TeamViewer app before using their services.
