Re: How can I stop Pay Pal notifications via Facebook Message?

I had the same problem. You can block the messages by clicking on the "gear" symbol and clicking "block messages". I'm curious to know more about the "linking" that the message refers to; how can I unlink PayPal and FB messenger?

I'm also curious to know if this has anything to do with Yahoo's recent security breach, as my (now changed) facebook login email was one of Yahoo's compromised ones.

Same problem. I blocked them. Super creepy. Makes me feel MUCH less secure with PayPal. I do not recal authorising communication between FB and PayPal and I cannot find a way to undo it.

Same here. Totally not happy about this. I try to keep some separation between my various accounts for privacy reasons and also to prevent cross-application hacking. I presume this was some Paypal shady pre-filled checkbox shadiness.

Re: How can I stop Pay Pal notifications via Facebook Message?

I just got one of these as well.  The email lets me unsubscribe from facebook but I wonder how the link got set in the first place and why PayPal doesn't have any settings (that I can find) to disconnect.

Re: How can I stop Pay Pal notifications via Facebook Message?

I have had this happen as well. I deliberately never use Facebook to log into ANYTHING, and all of a sudden I am getting notifications on Facebook about my PayPal transactions! I am so upset about this. Facebook is definitely Big Brother, and PayPal seems to be going that direction too!

How can I stop Paypal notifications from going to facebook?

This question is all over the place.  Everyone seems to hate it and no one seems to know how to remedy it, including the never-helpful support team at PayPal.

 

I'm hoping against hope that someone out there has figured it out and can tell me.  

 

I found this link, but it refers to the old version of the app, which no longer exists, so the instructions don't work.:  https://www.paypal.com/us/selfhelp/article/how-do-i-turn-off-receipt-notifications-within-facebook-m...

 

So, How can I stop Paypal notifications from going to facebook?

Re: How can I stop Paypal notifications from going to facebook?

Im Going To Guess That You Might Be Able To Stop That Through Your Facebook Notification Settings Along With Your Phone Settings & You Can Try PaPal Settings Lastly. Hope This Helps Solve Your Situation! Have A Good One!

How do I unlink Facebook?

Apparently a merchant I use has updated their PayPal account to use Facebook payments via Paypal!

Smiley Mad

 

How do I disable Facebook in my PayPal account?  I don't want FB Messenger receipts nor do I want Facebook tracking all my PayPal purchases with any merchants?

 

I understand how to turn off Facebook Messenger notifications.  I do not want Facebook survelience of my PayPal purchases.  How do I break the account linkages and associations?

 

TIA,

Sid

Faceboook sends receipts via Messenger for PayPal purchases that have nothing to do with Facebook/

Facebook keeps sending me receipts from PayPal for purchases made with PayPal, but which have NOTHING to do with Facebook. I don't think I signed up for this, and I don't want it. I don't like Facebook have it's 'hooks' into so many parts of my life.

 

How do I make this stop? I'm not even sure why it happened.

 

Many people have asked this question, but I don't see an answer.

 

In a different part of Facebook 'help', there is advice to click on 'Manage' in the upper right corner of a message from PayPal, and then turn off notifications. All I see here is an opportunity to block the messages from PayPal. I don't want to block them, I want PayPal to 1) stop accessing Messenger, and 2) stop sending messages via Facebook.

 

An e-mail is perfect, and it still does that, too. This messaging is overkill and I want it to stop.

Can someone please help with this?

Thanks in advance:-)

Re: How do I stop Notifications to messenger

This feature is miserable. The "opt in" doesn't really give you a "no" choice.

I feel like it was forced on me, and I hate it.
