With One Touch, there is no need to input the credit and debit card details to make purchases on your smartphones. Also, Google Smart Lock reduces the possibility of fraud by keeping the phones or tablets locked when it is not with you. Users once logged in will still need to go through the 2-factor Authentication step to complete the transaction as per applicable regulations. India will be the first market where the feature will be integrated Google Smart Lock.

Commenting on the launch, Kishore Konakanchi, Head of Product & Engineering, PayPal India, said “Our vision in India is to enable a convenient and safe payments experience for merchants and consumers. When consumers link their Google and PayPal accounts, it eliminates the need to re-enter passwords and thereby offering a faster check-out experience. Managing risk is PayPal’s secret sauce which has defined success for us across 200 markets over two decades”
