Taking swift action, SECP has partnered with the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to initiate actions against these illegal apps.

So far, SECP has successfully blocked 132 illegal apps through collaborative efforts with Google, Apple, FIA, and PTA.

The proliferation of illegal apps poses significant risks to users, including misuse of personal information, financial fraud, and harassment.

SECP warns the general public against downloading apps from unauthorized sources, emphasizing the importance of only accessing SECP-approved personal loan apps available on official app stores such as Google and Apple.
