OnePlus disables credit card payments on their site after data leak allegations

Remember a few days ago when OnePlus may or may not have leaked credit card numbers from customers on its site? Well, things aren’t looking any better now.

OnePlus has temporarily disabled all credit card payments on their site, leaving PayPal as the only option to make a purchase.

And, to be fair, it’s excellent that OnePlus is taking this possibility seriously and they’re proactively getting on top of things, but if they’re disabling credit card payments that probably means they’ve found something, and that’s going to make an awkward email to previous customers in a few weeks.

As of right now, there’s no concrete evidence one way or the other. OnePlus is digging in, and we’ll update you as soon as we learn anything. In the meantime, if you’ve recently made a purchase from OnePlus you’ll probably want to keep an eye on your bank statements and credit cards, and, if possible, start using third-party payment processors like PayPal to protect yourself from this in the future.
