Using a new laptop to login to my account?

New Community Member



I've been using my old laptop to login to Paypal for the past 8 years without any problem.


But now I'm thinking of buying a new laptop as my old one is starting to have hardware issues.


My question is:


Will my Paypal account get restricted or blocked if i start using a new laptop? Will Paypal think this as some sort of security breach and restrict my account if i use a new laptop?


The IP address and all my account details are the same, it's just the laptop that i will be using to login to my account that will be different.


Any thoughts?

Hello @gemini27


Welcome and thanks for joining the PayPal Community Forum. This is a great question. Your PayPal account is not tied to one specific device or computer, so you shouldn't have an issue logging in to a new computer. If you do run into any hiccups along the way, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Support teams for assistance.


Best wishes!
