Protect Your Account Info
  • Make sure you never provide your password to fraudulent websites: To safely and securely access the PayPal website or your account, be sure to verify the link found in the address bar. This must be https://www.paypal.com/.

  • Don't share personal information via email: We will never ask you to enter your password or financial information in an email or send such information in an email. You should only share information about your account once you have logged in to https://www.paypal.com/.

  • Protect Your Password
  • Never share your PayPal password: PayPal representatives will never ask you for your password. If you believe someone has learned your password, please change it immediately and contact us.
  • Keep your PayPal password unique: Don't use the same password for PayPal and other online services such as AOL, eBay, MSN, or Yahoo. Using the same password for multiple websites increases the likelihood that someone could learn your password and gain access to your account.
