Yes, Barclays' online banking service is knackered
If you're a Barclays' customer who has been trying to do some online banking, you'll know that their service seems to be down. Customers are unable to access their accounts and the mobile app isn't working either.
The site has been showing a message that says: "5 - Sorry - Barclays Online Banking is currently unavailable." If you hit 'next', you get an error message.
The site isitdownrightnow.com is showing that disruption is widespread too.
Of course, Barclays customers are taking to the internet to get angry about it, and as yet, there's no word from Barclays themselves from their main account. The UK wing apologised yesterday for some app disruption, but it appears it has all gone awry again.
Looks like customers will have to wait 'til the morning for an answer or apology. Until then, Barclays customers are advised to complain direct to the company themselves, rather than complaining so everyone else can see it (that only ensures that people will think you deserve your financial predicament).
We'll follow this up when we hear more.
