There has been a security upgrade to the M-PAiSA app to protect M-PAiSA users’ funds and prevent fraudulent access to their accounts.

Vodafone Fiji’s Regional Chief Marketing Officer, Rajnesh Prasad says this is a necessary security upgrade after recent reports of increased incidences of M-PAiSA customers being targeted by scammers.

Prasad says this will provide an added layer of security to the registered account holder by ensuring only their verified mobile device and number linked to the M-PAiSA app can access their M-PAiSA account.

He says once the new security update is installed, only the initial login into the M-PAiSA App requires the user to have their registered Vodafone or INKK SIM present on their phone.

Prasad says data on the SIM card attached to the mobile needs to be turned on for the initial login after the upgrade so that the MPAISA app can access the device and SIM card account details for authentication.

He further says once the M-PAiSA account registered with the SIM is authenticated on the mobile device, the user can use data from any service provider including Wifi to access the M-PAiSA App.
