O2 website and app down with customers unable to access accounts

O2 customers are unable to access their accounts this morning as the network's website and app has crashed.

The mobile phone firm confirmed that it is aware of the problem and engineers are working to fix the issues.

According to outage tracking website Downdetector, the problems started in the early hours of this morning.

O2's sign in page is down and says: "We're working on it. This page is unavailable because we're making improvements to our site.

"We'll have it back up and running as soon as possible".

It is also affecting the provider's My O2 and Priority apps, which are not working.

Will I get compensation from O2?

If you've been left out of pocket due to the website and app outage, you may be able to get compensation.

For example, if you were unable to pay a bill online and have been hit with late fees you might be able to get those refunded.

O2 hasn't confirmed whether customers will get any extra charges repaid, and we will update this article with more information when we have it.

In the meantime, make a note of any additional expenses caused by the outage.

Previously, the network has offered compensation after users were without service for 12 hours.
