It added:

“Our system links each account securely to a specific device, fortifying merchant login details and preventing unauthorised access on alternative devices.”

It noted that the robust security framework underscores its dedication to fostering trust and reliability in every transaction made through Tingo ePOS.

This comes after the Tingo Group's stocks were banned from trading by the US Stocks and Exchange Commission (SEC) due to fraud charges regarding the group's allegedly false public financial statements and assets.

However, according to The Cable report, the Tingo Group has defended the misstatement allegation in its financial accounts. It claimed that they were "typographical errors."
