Challenges That Might Face eNaira

  1. Exploitation by fraudsters: Smartphones and mobile banking apps will be used to manage eNaira, and these apps must be safe to avoid fraudsters from exploiting them, as they have been known to reverse engineer apps and construct convincing trojans that appear to be legitimate while being malware.
  2. Privacy: A multi-layered defence against data leaking is needed to protect privacy. As a result, these apps will have to protect themselves from rogue keyloggers and sloppy screen sharing.
  3. Illiteracy: The registration and usage of the eNaira require a little bit of know-how as uneducated might not get it easily.
