How to disable Paypal's automatic package tracking feature on the app?

New Community Member

I've been annoyed with the Paypal automatic package tracking services since it was added to the app earlier this year. I already use Shop to track my packages, and FedEx has recently started tracking non-FedEx packages in their app as well. I've found Paypal's package tracking to be really buggy and not helpful, and just downright annoying. I get tracking numbers for parcels I am SENDING OUT, just because the tracking number and label is emailed to me, and even though I remove the package as soon as I create the label for it, Paypal still adds it back and informs me when its been delivered to the receiver, even though its not my package. 


I can't stand this feature, and I can't disable it as far as I can tell. You can't even stop the notifications for it without turning off Paypal notifs altogether, which I need to have on so I can tell when people send me money. This is such a bothersome feature and I can't find anyway to disable it, even when I unliked my Gmail account, it still puts packages right back on there even though its not supposed to have access to my Gmail anymore. 


How do I disable it, and if someone at Paypal sees this, please create a way to disable this feature for those of us that want to opt out. I'm tired of getting 5+ notifications on my phone per package, it's really freaking annoying and unecessary.
