Bill Pay TIO Networks Provides Second Update on Suspension of Operations

After careful consideration, PayPal has decided to not restore TIO’s services and will wind down TIO’s business accordingly. We thank you for your patience as we made this difficult decision. We apologize for the inconvenience the discontinuation of services has caused our billing partners, retailers, agents, and their customers – and we appreciate your partnership and support for the past 20 years.

As previously announced, the PayPal platform is not impacted in any way and PayPal’s customers’ data remains secure. PayPal remains committed to our mission to democratize financial services and provide secure, convenient and affordable ways to move and manage money to those who are underserved by the financial system.

If you are a TIO biller, retailer or agent and have any questions or would like to speak to someone about this situation, please feel free to contact the TIO call center at (866) 710-0846.

If you are an affected customer that received a notice about the TIO security incident, and have any questions, you can still reach out to the Experian call center Monday to Friday 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM PT, and Saturday and Sunday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM PT at (855) 272-6796 (toll-free) for domestic callers or (479) 788-5000 (toll) for international callers.

TIO Networks Provides Update on Suspension of Operations

As announced on November 10, the operations of TIO Networks were suspended to protect customer data as part of an ongoing investigation of security vulnerabilities of the TIO platform. We have been working tirelessly to conduct a thorough review and get to the bottom of the situation. Now we have a clearer picture.

The ongoing investigation has uncovered evidence of unauthorized access to TIO’s network, including locations that stored personal information of some of TIO’s customers and customers of TIO billers.

TIO has begun working with the companies it services to notify potentially affected individuals. We are working with a consumer credit reporting agency to provide free credit monitoring memberships. Individuals who are affected will be contacted directly and receive instructions to sign up for monitoring.

We greatly appreciate the support of our billing partners, retailers, agents and consumers during this time. We will continue to communicate important updates to customers.

If you are an affected customer that received the customer notice, and have any questions, you can reach the Experian call center Monday to Friday 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM PT, and Saturday and Sunday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM PT at (855) 272-6796 (toll-free) for domestic callers or (479) 788-5000 (toll) for international callers.

If you are a biller, retailer or agent and have any questions or would like to speak to someone about this situation, please feel free to contact the TIO call center at (866) 710-0846.
