Having an option to create a custom upi id instead of a phone number one. Because privacy, duh !!
just use a third-party app then, then mask it. also there is no point in doing this as your name is pulled with the upi id anyways and if you are registered with apps like google play and paytm the phone number is also revealed.
No. In Gpay you can only see full contact numbers of those individuals which are already added into your contact list. Others are partially covered thinking this privacy only in mind. As far as name is concerned, thats fine.
Don’t use paytm.
The bigger picture is, there are apps which already have this option where custom upi ids can be used. It was already a feature of npci system
Ah ok I see.
