Money, the only primary transactional units to be used in the global market. As the days have passed, most of our daily essentials such as the foods, grocery, marketing and many things have shifted from offline processes to a new online process where people just have to use an application and use which all the related jobs would be done by having a single click on a button.

LIke these only, transactions as well have been shifted from offline to an online web-based procedure where the users don’t have to think about the timings and the distance where they have to send the money or from where to receive. It all just takes an email ID or a phone number that will help the users to authenticate with the recipients or whomever they want to. In this current generation of online connectivity and facility, one of the main innovations that have helped us all is the online transactional applications. 

In the global market, there are a number of online transactional applications that are trying to provide the sole support of online transactions along with some of the different and new features that the previous applications were not having along with them. Being an online transactional application, there are some of the main priorities that the governing organization has to provide to the users using the application. The first thing that the users would be needing is the security to the application and the money that is getting used in there and the security to the personal details of the users which have been shared with the application. 

If anyone of these goes into a wrong hand then that would be a disaster for the users and the responsible organization as well. Cash app is one of those online transactional applications that has tried to provide that required security to their users and the security to the money involved in the transaction that would assure the user of their transactions are in safe hands. Now, as we all know that, as there are a number of advantages of using an online transactional application, there are also some of the disadvantages as well that the users should know about. So, let us go and have a look at some of the serious problems.

Phishing 

Phishing is one of the most known ways that is being used by the hacker to have the unauthorised access to any of the device or the user’s account that they want to. To open the user account or to login into any user account the first thing that the users would be required is the internet connection. For a hacker, this is like the main communication channel using which they can take advantage.

For example, suppose a user is trying to open their account on the desktop and is trying to login to their cash app account. Now, what happens is that while doing such an activity, there might be many advertisements or such mail that the users may get which may seem related to the bank or anything related to the transaction. The main thing about that mail is that it may look the same as the users used to get so in case if they click on any link in that mail then the hacker becomes locked on to the IP address of the device and can get access to the cache memory.

In their cache memory, frequently used sensitive data such as the username, password may remain. So getting access to the cache memory can literally help the user to get bankrupt as the cash app user account is connected to the bank account of the user. That is why it is always better to use the debit card in place of the credit card of the bank while connecting the cash app. At Least that would lower the chances.

Distributed Denial-Of Service

As in the case of Phishing, we could see that using that process only targeted cash app accounts or applications can be hacked. But on the contrary, there are also such processes using which a whole bunch of accounts can be taken down. Distributed Denial-Of-Service is one of those processes that can be used in such cases. As we all know that cash app is an online transactional application.

So, being an online application, there must be an integrated service where all the transactional requests are getting accepted and are being processed. So, by any means, if the server can be taken down then all the details can be fetched from there for all the requests. In this kind of hacking, a hacker produces enormous amounts of requests for the server that the server cannot handle and depending on those requests the whole server can corrupt, as a result, all the security may become vulnerable for the hacker to get access to.

So, these are some of the common and known processes using which an online transactional platform such as the cash app can be taken into the corner which can be pretty much hard for the organizations to handle. In case if such things happen it is better to contact the cash app authority and discuss the fact over the mail and being a primary solution the user should immediately log out of the application.
