Pay, shop, and do even more on the PayPal appGet the App
I can login fine w/ my laptop, but since the last few weeks I can no longer log in to paypay from my iphone.
ios 15 was installed so maybe that broke it.
Doesn't work from chrome, safari, with incognito/private browser session or from the paypay app (uninstall and reinstall it - still will not work). Also clearing cookies/cache didn't work.
Problem is the 2 factor auth - it hangs trying to prompt for the method or ask for the authenticator code.
If I disable 2 factor auth (using my laptop to login) it works fine but no way i'm leaving it like that.
What's the solution? I use my phone 95% of the time so not being able to pay for things is a problem and I hate putting my credit card directly into websites.
I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble logging in to your account from your phone. I understand how concerning this would be. For this situation, I suggest contacting us to provide additional details. To contact our Customer Support, please click on 'Contact' at the bottom of any PayPal website page to view available options. You can also reach out by sending us a private message on Facebook or a direct message on Twitter.
I hope this helps!
Hi - I did contact support and they just disabled my 2 factor authentication. Does any one else have this problem? makes paypal worthless to me on my phone so i'm looking for alternatives now.
Same problem with me. I can successfully login with a Windows PC, a Chrome OS laptop but I cannot login with 2 step auth enabled using my iPhone and my iPad. I tried with the PayPal app and with browser.
I call the helpdesk 4 times and every time they tell me to disable the 2 step auth, and that it's a problem related to Apple products.
I'm going to delete my PayPal account. A financial product that cannot solve basic problems it's not trustable.
