Do you have a mobile (not landline) phone issued in your country and registered in just your name verified on your Paypal account?
Paypal are using mobile phones for i.d requirements for logging in and withdrawal funds for extra security measures.
Hello. I am having problems with the authentication. Last year I have changed my phone number and forgot to change it on my paypal account. So now when it asks me the authentication with the a text messege I can't get it because the phone number is now different. I chose "Try another way", but it redirects me to the same page with the authentication with text messege. I don't know what to do. Can you help me, please? Thanks

Thanks looking forward
for the mobile number, only paypal can do a few things.
you can't do anything yourself.
if you have difficulty joining paypal, you can do so on twitter and facebook.
paypal is present on both. all you have to do is "send a private message"
https://www.facebook.com/PayPal and @AskPayPal for Twitter.
I live in Europe currently, I'm originally from Canada and will be moving back soon. There is a two-step authentication required for a very old account of mine, in which I'm sure I hold many funds, and I no longer have access to the phone number that it asks me to verify, I've had this issue for a while now, because I haven't had the old phone number for a year now, but I thought enough is enough, I want in on my old account
Paypal is country specific so if you move countries you have to open another paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / bank accounts / cards from within that country.
You should really withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts / cancel any subscriptions and close the old Paypal account before you move countries. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved and may need to contact customer services for help to resolve things.
the answer to your question is present several times on the subject
sim card lost or not, without valid mobile number, you need to contact paypal customer service.
Due to the fact that you do not have access to your old phone number, you will need to contact our telephone support team.
