Yes I get the same messages!
How can I PERMANENTLY turn off 'Trusted Device Status'? Whenever I pay for something with Paypal, I get an email from Paypal that said: 'Stay Logged In On This trusted Device' I do not want to stay logged in on ANY of my devices! I'm sick and tired of having to turn off 'Trusted Device' each time I use Paypal!!? can't I turn it off PERMANENTLY?
It may well be something that frequent users want, but I'm a casual user (once or twice a month) and I do not want it!
Could someone from Paypal reply please - It's been almost a year since the initial post!
"Stay logged in on this trusted device" ... I have exactly this issue, and it's quite recent. I click the link and then I need to Log IN in order to turn it off. Turning it off actually seems to make zero difference, to anything. I still have to log in to pay with PayPal, and there is nothing nothing nothing about this issue in any of the help screens.
I believe this is a phishing scheme. By a third party. Who wants your Pay Pal Login. I don't believe it was PayPal at all. PayPal, they want two-factor ID, they want more security questions. Why would they inaugurate a special reduced-security program? Who would want that?
So I changed my password and I just ignore the emails now. PayPal, as you note, has never responded to any enquiry about this "feature."
Agreed - We need to be able to turn off this option permanently. (Turning off Trusted Device Status, not the emails). That's a security vulnerability that WE DO NOT NEED.
