eBay helps protect your account through identity confirmation.

Dear member,

Keeping your personal information secure and confidential is one of our most important responsibilities. We continuously use a variety of technologies and techniques designed to keep anyone from getting your information without your permission. One way we do this is by checking whether a member is using one of their usual computers to access eBay. If an attempt is made to sign in, buy or list from an unrecognised computer, we may require additional confirmation to help protect your account from unauthorised access. If you're using a different computer - for example, at the office or at a friend.s house - we may ask for some additional verification before you can sign in, buy or list an item.

To help identity confirmation work quickly for you, we recommend that you:

Check that your personal information is current . We might need to confirm the information in your account, such as your telephone number or address. We also highly recommend that you provide us with a secondary phone number (for example a mobile number for when you are on the go).
