To ensure complete safety for the user and the money lender, devices sold under the HMD Easy Pay scheme will be equipped with an HMD Soft Lock. It will be a software-based security measure which will monitor the EMI payment schedule of the customer.
In case the customer misses an EMI, they will notified by the company to pay their dues. If the amount is not paid for an extended period, HMD Global can remotely lock the device, and the user will not be able to use their Nokia smartphone. Upon successful clearing of dues, the device can be used normally by the user.
When the customer keeps paying all EMIs on time, HMD Soft Lock will never interfere with the user. Once all EMIs are paid, the lock will get disabled automatically.
