Google Wallet service, which was found to be passing users’ information to the developers, has now been updated. Droid Life noted that Google has a updated the Wallet code to fix the loophole and protect the consumers’ details.
Google Wallet service basically takes a record of the user’s credit card details along with other basic information. This is done to save the user from feeding the information every time and make the shopping a spiffy experience. Google Wallet service has been integrated with the Google Play Store and the Android app developers get the details of transaction every time an app is purchased.
However, till last month, the Android developers used to receive details of the app buyers such as one’s name and address along with the purchase information – minus the credit card details, of course.
But with this update, whenever you make a purchase at the Google Play Store, your personal details won’t be made available to the developer.
