Cash App provided updates on its website, advising users not to retry payments or deposits displaying error messages.
They also recommended against logging out of the app, although they did not clarify the reasons behind these instructions.
Cash App acknowledged the situation, stating, “We’re aware of an issue affecting various features of the app and are actively investigating.” However, the cause of the problem was not disclosed, with Cash App confirming that no hacking had occurred.
