  1. Check your email and/or mobile phone for any email or SMS notifications from us.
     
    If your iiNet invoice isn't paid by the due date, you'll receive an email/SMS notification advising the earliest possible date your services may be suspended, BEFORE suspension occurs. Suspension can be prevented entirely by paying the amount owing before the advised suspension date.
     
  2. If your iiNet invoice remains unpaid and your iiNet services are suspended, all you need to do is pay the amount owing. You can do this by:

    - Making a payment in Toolbox; or
    - Calling us on 13 22 58 to make a secure credit card payment over the phone; or
    - Using any of the alternative payment methods listed on your invoice.
     

  3. Once your payment has cleared, your iiNet services should automatically unsuspend within one business day.

If you are experiencing difficulties making this payment, then please see our Financial Hardship Policy for information about your options and how to speak to someone about your circumstances.

 

  1. Check your email and/or mobile phone for any email or SMS notifications from us.
     
    Due to the unpredictable nature of security incidents, you'll be notified AFTER your services have been suspended. We may also attempt to contact you by phone using the contact details listed on your account.
     
  2. The notification you receive will explain the nature of the security incident and outline what needs to be done in order to resecure your account. In general, this will include:

    - Changing your iiNet account password(s)
    - Running antivirus and malware scans
    - Ensuring you are using secure passwords for your home network (i.e. WiFi and router access, particularly if a remote management feature is in use)
     

  3. Once we've spoken to you to verify your identity and ensure that measures have been taken to resecure your account, your iiNet services may be unsuspended.
