A Chinese province has developed an app to tell people if they are in the vicinity of someone in debt. Business Insider reports the app, named the "map of deadbeat debtors," is available for use in Hebei, northern China. State-run China Daily newspaper reported users in the province can now access the app via WeChat, the country's most popular instant messaging platform. The app sends warning notifications to show users if they are within a 500-meter radius of someone who is currently in debt. It's unclear if the app displays the debtors' names or photos. China Daily said it would let people "whistle-blow on debtors capable of paying their debts."
