Not long after, OTP announced that digital data thieves using stolen username and password combinations on other, non-OTP interfaces had hacked the accounts of thousands of users and changed the registered e-mail addresses using a robotic method.

In addition, Simple Pay immediately blocked the affected accounts.
Simple Pay said it would file a police report and restore the accounts.
Simple Pay is a payment app created by OTP, which groups together several possible services and can manage purchases of motorway stickers, as well as parking, cinema and train tickets.
