Used Paypal for a while and never had problems. It seems that now Paypal has weak spots for hackers. I received and email from Paypal about a payment for $280 to a seller. I immediately entered the page and tried to contact the seller and inform Paypal that this was an unauthorized payment. I received an email back from paypal that said that they would investigate and reply in about 9 days. I received a reply from the seller and he told me that he also contacted Paypal to inform he did not had any money transaction with me. Paypal told him that it seemed that somebody hacked both of our accounts and was using his to get the money and then transfer the money out of his account. With all this information at hand, and with my money still in my bank, still, two day later the money left my bank. Now I am $280 in the negative side until this is solved. The selling point of Paypal is that nobody can see your bank info when making purchases, still the most dangerous part took place, which was they were able to get money from my bank. Disappointing that a name like Paypal was not as strong in security as expected.
In your account profile under the security settings, you're able to set up a security pin. When set up this would require a temporary pin be sent to your phone every time you log into your account with your password.
