Cash App (formerly known as Square Cash) is a mobile payment service developed by Square., allowing users to transfer money to one another using a mobile phone app.

Is Cash App Down Or Not Working

Cash App users encountered error messages while attempting money transfers, and several businesses faced payment processing issues with Square throughout the entire day.

On Thursday, Cash App experienced a system outage, impacting various functionalities within the peer-to-peer money-sharing app, leading to difficulties in accessing funds. Simultaneously, the payment processing app, Square, faced disruptions.

It’s worth noting that Square and Cash App share the same parent company, Block.

Many users took to social media to express their frustrations, reporting issues such as being unable to unlock their Cash App debit cards or encountering error messages when trying to send money.

Additionally, some businesses struggled to process credit card payments using Square and access appointments scheduled through the platform for customer notifications.

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.

Responding to a user on X, the app assured, “We can assure you that Cash App isn’t hacked.”

Notably, in June, a glitch resulted in some Cash App customers being double-charged for purchases or payments, leading to negative balances. Eventually, affected users received refunds.
