Google has begun issuing prepaid cards to Google Wallet again, following a brief suspension last week over PIN security concerns.
Osama Bedier, vice president of Google Wallet and Payments, issued this notice last night on the company’s Commerce blog:
“Yesterday afternoon, we restored the ability to issue new prepaid cards to the Wallet. In addition, we issued a fix that prevents an existing prepaid card from being re-provisioned to another user.”
“While we’re not aware of any abuse of prepaid cards or the Wallet PIN resulting from these recent reports, we took this step as a precaution to ensure the security of our Wallet customers,” continued Bedier. “If you are unable to access your previous prepaid card balance for any reason, please contact our toll-free support for assistance.”
