2FA does not remember any devices.

On every device I use (several Macs, Android phone) and on every browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.), PayPal asks me to enter a 2FA code EVERY SINGLE TIME I log in. I have now disabled 2FA, because it's such a nuisance, because your system fails to remember any device. It's a shame i have to compromise my security because of this.

 

I've contacted support nearly a dozen times, and no one on your team seems to be able to comprehend the issues. Absurd. Why can't I speak to a supervisor or someone who can understand English?

 

I click "Don't ask for codes on this device" and it has no effect. Every single login requires a code. Including the Android app.

Any update from PayPal on this? Is it using third party cookies (and therefore often being ignored) or something?

It does not work again.. since 3 months iam back to continous 2fa for login.

 

I tried to use "another method" (SMS) and it kept me logged in. Maybe some1 else can try this?
