Equity Bank’s Thin Sim technology represents a novel threat to most successful mobile app in Africa

Safaricom earlier this week lost a legal battle to block the roll-out of Equity Bank’s Thin Sim technology, when the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) and Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) dismissed the telco’s objections to the technology. Safaricom had claimed that the dual SIM had the potential steal data from the main SIM and pass it on to third parties.
