LCredit Was Banned From Google Play Store Over Policy Violation
Multiple violating loan app in Nigeria, LCredit has been finally shown the way out of Google Play Store after QUICK LOAN ARENA damning report

Multiple violating loan app in Nigeria, LCredit has been finally shown the way out of Google Play Store after QUICK LOAN ARENA damning report on the serial abuses, loan application and tenure violation and abuse of customer data privacy and other several infringements recorded against the lending platform.

LCredit Is One Of The Worst Loan Apps In Nigeria To Ever To Exist – Customers’ Testimony

LCredit is the of worst lending platforms to ever exist in Nigeria judging from the way and manner it has been conducting its activities, nothing could be more unethical and uncouth in the serial abuses and invasion of privacy that LCredit has subjected its various customers to.

QUICK LOAN ARENA had exclusively reported in October last year that the internet giant, Google removed Rapid Naira and LCredit loan apps from its Play Store after found to be serially violating its policies on loan application, approval and loan tenure, terms and conditions, and privacy polices guiding finance apps hosted on its network. This medium has been on the forefront reporting against  scam apps such as LCredits, Rapid Naira  ForNaira and some others on Google Play Store predating on poor Nigerians and violating Google Policies on lending apps.

According to one of the policy statements of Google for loan apps hosted on its Play Store: “We only allow personal loan apps with full repayment required in greater than or equal to 60 days from the date the loan is issued… apps that fail to do so will be removed without further notice.”

Another Google Policy states that: “Any app that offer personal loans with an Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 36% or higher are no longer expected to be available on the Play Store. To keep their apps in the Play Store, lenders must adjust their products and business models to meet Google’s requirements.”

However many of the lending apps, including LCredit and many other loan apps in Nigeria give loan ranging from 7 days to 30 days at very exhorbitant interest rate and APR higher than that specified by Google. The network should enforce its policies and show these violating apps the way out.

LCredit Was First Removed By Google Play Store Over Violation

LCredit was removed by Play Protect, the security system on Playstore that scans apps hosted on Google for malware and other malicious virus and fraudulent apps. The internet giant had warned users from using LCredit app because it was trying to spy on phone contacts, recordings, photos, banking details and other sensitive contents on their devices. This is against Google Privacy Policy.

LCredit Was Later Reinstated And Allowed Back Into Google Play Store

QUICK LOAN ARENA had exclusively reported in Novermber that Google has restored and readmitted the rogue app, LCredit into its Play Store exactly one month after the initial ban. The internet giant has removed LCredit and Rapid Naira from the Store on the 21st of October, for data breach and violation of customers’ data privacy.

LCredit Continued To Defame and Threaten Nigerians Once It Got Back Into Play Store

However LCredit continued to threaten and defame its customers, borrowers and Nigerians in general. We reported a few of LCredit threats and abuses against Nigerians and expected Google to take action. Even with all these reports, Google failed to take action until the final report few days ago, when some customers cried out to QUICK LOAN ARENA that the dreaded LCredit was threatening their lives over unpaid loans.

QUICK LOAN ARENA Story That Finally Broke The Camel’s Back Of LCredit

We quickly reported the life threatening story made by LCredit against some customers and also made a formal report to Google Inc through their Nigerian representative asking for the internet giant to take action against the scam loan app and remove it from its play store.
