Giving apps an absolutely new dimension, China recently launched an app which works like a radar for people who are in debt.
Reportedly this application was developed on the instructions of the Chinese police. The app was created in the Chinese province of Hebei.
The application tends to display the locations of people in debt, whenever the person using the app is within 500 yards of them.
The major inspiration behind the application is the need to report the citizens who spend more than they should.
The application which goes by the name of “Map of Deadbeat Debtors” could be accessed via ‘WeChat’. (A social media app)
It's being claimed that the users are instantly alerted via a flash when they stand within 500 meters of a debtor.
The exact location of the debtor is displayed, if there's any appearance of personal information hasn't been confirmed yet.
It's an initiative which works towards citizens keeping a lookout for potential debtors, regardless of the seriousness of the debt.
Apparently, owing a debt is considered inappropriate in the culturally rich country of China.
The new reforms in the social credit system of the country are to be held responsible for the idea of the application.
The latest system is just the thing which the country needs and will judge the citizens on the basis of their social behavior.
