Security help asap!

I’m living in Egypt. I have an Egyptian phone number. When logging in, Paypal wanted to send me a code to my old USA number, but when trying to change the number, it wouldn’t allow the Egyptian number to be entered. Also, I had NO way to change the security options! Help!

Paypal is country specific so if you move country you have to open another paypal account in that country and add an address / phone number / and bank accounts from within that country.

You are supposed to withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts before you leave your old country. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved.

The only exception is U.S ex-pats can add their bank accounts to other countries paypal accounts (paypal is a U.S company so they allow their citizens to do this).

Advice is voluntarily given.
