Before making this post, the person started the process but could not complete it due to paystack error,he went to bank to sort that out yesterday and has called me to pls come today, this is when i started having double mind. Can i just delete the app (I already granted those permission they requested).

Yes sir, they will get access to your contact and if he did not pay in time they will also send messages to them but your name and details will not appear but the problem is that someone get access to your contacts.

An OTP will be sent by the app to verify the phone number and this is how your number will be gotten.

If you still want to go ahead, remove your SIM so that the person uses his/her own SIM (& Google account).

Honestly, this is one of the reasons I put a password in almost all my apps.
Anything you wanna do, you're gonna have to have to let me know. Because what if he do it behind your back?

Back to the question, just tell him you just can't do it. It's hard to say no to people, especially family and friends, but then, them go put you for endless gbese and embarrassment if care is not taken.

Now I'm not saying your friend is a good friend who needs your help to come out of a tight spot, or a bad friend with malicious intentions. No. It's not about him but about you.

Look out for yourself and be on a safe side. You also get luck say e no fit see this post as e no get fone.

By doing that, you will have kissed goodbye to your privacy. Why must he use your phone, doesn't he have family or friends? Don't accept.

OP are you a fool?
You will download the app, use your details and BVN and phone number to register on the app. Then you will give your phone to your colleague to borrow.

Your colleague does not have money to buy a smart phone, but he can borrow money from loan app.
OP, U get brain at all?

You will delete the app after he borrow? All I see here is crook , how will he pay back when you uninstall the app and he doesn't have smart phone

As far as the loan app company is concerned they are dealing directly with you and they have access to all you contact so be ready to pay back or have your name smear all over the place

There is harm. Serious one. Those apps download your contacts who they'll harass the hell out of when he doesn't repay.

And there is a high possibility that they would link it to you since your phone number is going to be linked to his account.

So be prepared to receive lots of phone calls from the loan apps and the people they'd call.
