I have been out of the country for a year. In that time, i cancelled my UK phone number to avoid paying for a service I no longer use>
Now i'm back and trying to log into my Paypal account, it asks to send me a text. I can get round that by entering my security answers. The screen comes up with the green tick and login verified, then just dumps me straight back to the login screen again without any error messages.
I need to get access to my Paypal account and have no idea what to do now.
I've cleared my cache/logins, used five different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Waterfox, Edge and Opera), turned off any virus protection, restarted my computer and tried the Paypal app on my iPhone (which just wanted to send a text to my defunct telephone number, so utterly useless).
Any ideas gratefully received please.
