Barclaycard website goes TITSUP*

Users report issues establishing secure connection

Updated Barclaycard has admitted it is experiencing technical issues, with users complaining they can’t log in online or on their apps.

According to DownDetector, the UK-based credit card biz's website has been experiencing problems since 8.40am this morning, GMT, with more than 200 reports within an hour.

Barclaycard said on Twitter that it was aware of the issue and was “working on a fix right now”.

In the meantime, users took to social media to speculate about the root of the problem - banks being notoriously tight-lipped about the causes of their TITSUPs.

A number said they were receiving error messages saying there was no secure connection, and that attempts on multiple browsers failed.

On Twitter, the card provider said it was investigating and working on a fix.

We've contacted Barclaycard for comment. ®
