eSewa removed from Google Playstore

 eSewa is the most used mobile wallet service in Nepal. It operates in both online and offline mode and is probably the most trusted mobile wallet among customers. Yesterday, the eSewa application has been removed from the Google Playstore.

However, the app is still available in Apple‘s Appstore and is still functioning on Android devices which has already installed the eSewa app. You can still download the eSewa app on Android phones from the eSewa website.

eSEWA Removed From Google PlayStore

eSewa is yet to reveal the reason for which their android application has been removed from Playstore. They have mentioned that “They are working with the play-store team to make the app live once again”. So we are hopeful that the eSewa application will be back in Google Playstore soon.

This is not the first time a digital wallet has been removed from Google Playstore. Recently Khalti and IME Pay also suffered the same problem and they were restored within a few days.

This removal of digital wallets from Playstore arrises a question in the customer’s mind as Google doesn’t remove the application from Playstore without any reasons. If the application has security issues and doesn’t follow the security policy of the Play Store then they may remove the application. However, there are a few other reasons too.

That being said, there must be a few reports coming soon as these scenarios are arising multiple times.
