Verizon blocks Google Wallet over SE requirements

POSTED BY on Dec 19 under Mobile & Web News

The battle between Verizon and Google is raging over the Google Wallet application with the Federal Communications Commission getting involved now.

Verizon has blocked its support of Google Wallet since the application’s launch. The company’s irregular support of the Wallet app is probably a result of Verizon’s participation in the ISIS platform.

A Federal Communications Commission complaint against Verizon, which the company responded to, was the latest news in the story.

Verizon, in its response, made clear that Google’s app along with Square, Starbucks and PayPal, would not be blocked if the application did not require access to the secure element of the device.

Verizon is keen to the anti competitive concerns that are connected to its dispute on Google’s issue, due to its involvement with the ISIS project.

Verizon states that Google is free to offer its Wallet application in a matter that does not require access to the SE and Verizon will not grant an access to the SE.
