Re: My Account Suddenly Became Chinese...

I don't have Facebook or Twitter. Emails from PayPal are now arriving addressed to me in Chinese.

 

Please, what is the US phone number to contact PayPal?

I Had this problem. Figured it out. From the main page click on the three horizontal bars icon meaning menu. Then click on the settings icon (looks like a gear). On that page one of the first few options is for language. When you click on it it will give you a drop down menu where one of the options is English. Choose it and reload the page. Good luck.

I found another solution.  This problem only shows up in Chrome for me, and not in Firefox.

 

In Chrome, go into Settings > Show Advanced Settings, click on the Language button.

 

Delete any unwanted languages.  Close all Chrome windows, restart, and Paypal should load only in English (or your desired default language.

 

Hope this helps.
