Google Wallet users will remember that back in February Google suspended the ability for users to use prepaid credit card functions within Google’s service. In an attempt to respond to reported security flaws
Well if you have missed the ability to use your prepaid credit card functions with Google Wallet you might be pleased to know that Google has now re-enabled the service for users.
Google also wanted to apologise to users that have been effected by the suspension of the prepaid credit card service, with another $5 payment for any inconvenience they may have caused. Google explains:
As you may have experienced over the last few weeks, we temporarily disabled the feature to add the Google Prepaid Card back to your wallet if you previously removed the card or reset your wallet. We temporarily disabled this feature to ensure the security of our Wallet customers. We recognize this may have been an inconvenience for you, and we did not make this decision lightly.
We are happy to announce that you can now add the Google Prepaid Card back to your wallet with the newest version of Google Wallet, and any funds that you previously had on the card should be restored, unless you contacted Money Network and asked for a refund of those funds. To add the Google Prepaid Card back, you will first need to update your Google Wallet application to the most recent version.
To compensate you for any inconvenience this may have caused, we have credited an additional $5 (five US dollars) to your Google Prepaid Card. If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at 855-492-5538.
Thank you for your continued support of Google Wallet, and we look forward to launching many new and exciting features for you to enjoy in the coming months.
