GCash pulled from the Play Store to welcome new updates for Android users. Beware of fake news circulating online.
Last night, people got confused about a weird event on the Play Store – GCash disappeared! It caused a lot of ruckus and spawned numerous fake news, even mentioning a “CEO” and the NBI. Some even feared that they would lose their GCash money thinking the service is ending.
A tip from a reliable source revealed that GCash isn’t gone. In fact, you can still download the app on Apple’s AppStore and HUAWEI AppGallery. The tip also mentioned that the February 10 “disappearance of GCash” is not true.
The tip has been affirmed by GCash’s statement on its official Facebook account. The post noted that the app is having its features updated for Android users, and those who already downloaded the app before can use its services normally.
Prior to GCash’s official statement, one fake claim said that the GCash’s CEO warned people to cash out their money as the app is down. Another false claim warned those who are using fake ID for the app will be traced as the service is now working with NBI.
GCash’s Facebook account called them fake news.
GCash isn’t going anywhere and if the service is ending, the company will release an official statement and give ample time for users to do what they need to do. So, beware of fake news and stop jumping into conclusions right away.
Stay tuned for more updates about GCash.
