I have two factor authentication set up on my account (business account) and in the past I only occasionally was asked to input the verification code that PP sent to me via text, presumably that was good enough to verify my machine for a while. As of about two weeks ago it's started asking me every single time I log in. Since I can be logging into my account several times a day this has rapidly become extremely irritating, more so because my office is in a basement with no wifi signal, so I have to physically move out of my office to a location in my home where I can get a signal to receive the text.
This evening I had to go through two rounds of the game 'I'm not a Robot' and then still do the verification code on top of that. It's beyond a joke.
Is this a permanent change or is this something that is only happening to a few people, or just me? If it's not something that PP has changed then does anyone know how I can get it to change back again. I don't want to switch off the authentication altogether, just stop it from asking me. Every. Single. Time!
Do you have a solution meanwhile? Because I have the same observation and it's very annoying. Especially on the phone with FaceID enabled.
It's the same here. I logged into Paypal to send money to my bank and for this transaction, Paypal sent me 3 sms codes and also 7 times the robot picture puzzle. It's really crazy...
I understand that the initial login to the account is confirmed with an SMS code, but the current situation is absurd.
