Hello, does anyone know how to disable 2-step verification? We have several people using the account so the text code is very limiting. When I search in Paypal, it just says that Business accounts do not have 2-step...yet I'm a business account (definitely checked) and I have 2 step.

You can change the status of your PayPal Security Key online by following these steps:
I hope this helps.
Where did you get or see the "Security Key" option in the security tab? Where is it? Are you making up your own story? You're making it more complicated. Waste of time!
This is n ot accurate, dont know which version of PP you are using, but neither my American nor European account show the options you are dréscribing...
I'm having an issue with the instructions you have provided.
When going into security settings and opening 2 step verification it asks me to set it up. I select send me a code, I enter the provided code and I turn on 2 step verification, press save., I then exit and go back in and turn it off and press save again.
Go out of security setting (still logged into paypal) then go back in and the settings and it is asking me to set it up again. The page is not saving my selection. Even though 2 step is apparently not set up, it still requires me to ask for a code every transaction (I hate this) I can't turn it off as my selection is not being saved
I finally figured this out, no thanks to Paypal! Go to the gear in the upper right of Paypal and select "Your Profile". Scroll down to "2-step verification" and click update. From there you can just turn it off.
I cannot disable it, even after trying to. I thought i did though... i even got an email saying:
Yet, every time i want to log in, i still get the SMS / text message prompt.... that they need to send me a SMS in order for me to log in.
ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS . Fix this now paypal !
I don't always have my phone with me. Pretty sure many other don't have as well.
