Revolut is one of the popular digital banking apps that has gained a significant user base for its convenient and innovative financial services.

However, the Revolut app is being massively criticized after an allegation made by Tristan Tate that his account was locked with a staggering $700,000 inside (1,2,3,4,5).

The incident has undoubtedly highlighted the vulnerability of digital banking platforms. Exasperated users are now asking the company to shed light on the matter (1,2,3).

Some people are even aggressively asking the company to return the money to the rightful owner (1,2,3). This incident may make people question whether their personal funds are indeed secure or not.

What’s more concerning is the fact that a section of Revolut users have also made similar allegations. They claim that the app locked some of their funds for months as well without providing any justification.

Revolut is good for low spending money, I had blocked 50.000 EUR, and released only after 6 months.. they been asked documents to proof source of funds, after I give all documents they started to ask more intimate and personal documents. trust me not worth.
