A digital spending profile based on a person’s history of mobile purchases that went online on Wednesday has sparked a public outcry over privacy issues.
Alipay, the country’s leading e-wallet app, was thrown into the spotlight after a lawyer complained on social media that the company was not explicit enough about its intention to share user data with its commercial partners.
Alipay’s 520 million users were able to use the app starting Wednesday to review their 2017 transaction history. But a small section-checked by default and buried at the bottom of the landing page-contained an agreement that automatically enrolled its users in its credit rating service if they viewed their spending history by swiping upward on the screen.
The post has since gone viral and caused outrage among netizens, forcing Alipay to issue an apology on Wednesday night. The company has also tweaked the settings, making the agreement statement more prominent on the page. Alipay also provided detailed instructions on how users can go about rescinding their consent.
The reaction to Alipay’s attempts to assuage concerns has been lukewarm.
