I have the same problem. I've been using PayPal for so long that they only have two old landlines of mine on file. When this new 2-step verification thing comes up because they want to send a verification code to my mobile, it tries to send it to these old landlines that I don't have anymore. I can't even update my numbers because I'm locked out because of the verification thing. My email hasn't changed however, so why can't they send a verification code via email like everyone does since forever?
I've had to switch over to using credit/debit cards for payments, which is fine except not everyone accepts cards.
Phone help? Some of us are complete introverts and the very idea of talking to someone over a phone about some difficult problem really stresses us out. Just have an emal option!
I suspect a big chunk of PayPal's users have been (permanently?) locked out of their accounts by this. However, it's not 2005 anymore so there are lots of alternative payment methods these days.
I can’t login in my PayPal account because I had changed my new phone number is <Removed> and please let me know? Your faithfully mr s p <Removed>
I can't get past the new authentication screen as i have a new mobile phone number & the only 2 methods being offered to contact me are via text and phone call to my old mobile number. Any idea how i can update my mobile number?
Not using PayPal for 3 years. And the phone number that I used in the past and put in the account information has now gone to someone else. Now I cannot go through the login procedures
