It is arrogant and unacceptable to assume, expect and demand anyone using this service to own a cell phone.
It smacks of unethical cross-checking with other companies doing who knows what with our private information. I don't care what the privacy statement says. We all know companies do nefarious things behind closed doors.
Further, as has been proven by the recent massive bank hack in Europe, it is a FALLACY to think someone can actually be "verified" by using SMS to send a useless "code" in attempts to tie every possible means of tracking someone together.
As a 45-year software engineer I find these tactics to be 1) unethical, 2) useless, 3) aggravating, 4) intrusive.
Everyone can not afford a mobile phone! How did you at PayPal get so full of yourself? I can't log in to my account which I've had for years.
I don't have a mobile, have no plans to get one either. If it now means I can't use PayPal, so be it. Don't know when this policy requiring a mobile was introduced - a week ago it wasn't necessary, but it seems discriminatory to me: forcing me to make an unwanted purchase.
Thank you for this - but how can I access my account that I have had for YEARS now?
Love it when technology HAS to be used.............NOT!
Bye for now
Yet again it seems that Paypal don't really seem to care about people who don't, won't or cannot use a mobile phone - for whatever reason they may have. Another strike for people trying to make life difficult these days. Disgusting and totally wrong - like a lot of stuff these days......
If there's a problem with my account, I guess it doesn't matter and I won't have to sort it out. I think I will just shut down the items I have using paypal buttons and give up.......
THANK you Paypal.
