Zelle Sees Complaints Rise Over Strict Security Measures

Consumers have submitted hundreds of complaints about the p2p payments app because they are unable to sign up or access money that was sent to them; the reason behind the issues is Zelle’s security structure is very similar to that of a bank; if something doesn’t match perfectly or the users bank is outside the Zelle network then its possible they will not be able to sign on; Zelle initially launched inside their bank network only, but in September they launched their stand alone app and thats when the issues began; the company is looking at improving the process but says they will not compromise their security.
