This app stops you from using your debit card

July 18, 2017

The best time to shop online is not when you've been drinking! A new app claims to help you curb drunken online spending. It's called DrnkPay and connects to your credit and debit cards to a breathalyzer to limit certain purchases if you've had too much to drink. The creator of the app says a user sets his or her own spending limit, and once they hit it, the app locks the cards and prevents you from making further payments. It's up to the individual to block all payments, or just certain "weak" points, such as take out food, purchases at clubs, etc. The breathalyzer is connected to the device via Bluetooth. The app also includes a "Help Me Out" feathre, where users can book an emergency Uber to get home safely.
