yes, I know this function. May be I should have written some more information about this practical experience I made in this situation. I think it is a convenience and clarity thing.
I was standing at the counter and was asked to pay. I held the card at the edge of the transaction device to pay contactless. Then the information showed up “… not authorized”.
Then I tried to pay with the chip by sliding the card into the device and I became the same message “… not authorized”.
This was irritating. I was thinking “Do I have enough money on the card? Yes.” Hmm. Must be a temporary failure I can’t influence. So luckily I found enough cash in my pocket.
In this situation didn’t came in my mind that the cause could be the “location security feature”.
Later the two transaction tries were shown up in the app and I understood what the problem was. But I didn’t understood it in the situation.
So, my thought was, how could this “location security feature” be better handle a situation like this.
If the App can’t recognize what my position is, then I could give me a hint and ask me, if it’s ok or not.
That’s what I tried to say. Hopefully it’s more understandable.
