Giving this tool to people without credit cards or bank accounts gives them an additional means of cash and access to additional financial services. And by partnering with Walmart just before the holiday season should bring an influx of business to the store, as well as bringing new customers to Paypal.

Microsoft Changing Its Policy on Privacy Laws

For the better. Microsoft just announced that it will be following California’s digital privacy laws throughout the entire US. This gives consumers more control over how companies use their data. The California Consumer Privacy Act provides protection to consumers, giving them the opportunity to opt-out of having their information sold. It also allows people to request that data be deleted. When the CCPA goes into effect Jan 1, it will be the most stringent data privacy protection in the nation. Smart move Microsoft, smart move!

Google Play Points Now in the US

By purchasing items and subscriptions from the Play Store, or in-app, or by downloading featured apps and games, you can start collecting points.
