Class 0 message popup during SMS verification and couldn’t register appWhen I was trying to set up my Google pay account on android pie device, I was facing a difficult problem. During configuring google pay, there is a step to find and verify the bank account linked to my mobile number. In that step, the app sends a cryptic SMS to a specified number. Soon after mobile send this message a “class 0 message” window popup, then the google pay registration fails and showing the following message.
Bank account couldn’t be added – please don’t switch from Google Pay while registration taking place.
I didn’t intentionally switch from Google Pay; I think it is due to the Class 0 message popup. I tried to block the class 0 message by stopping message notification, but it didn’t work. How to solve this issue and successfully register the app.
