I kind of have to agree with everyone else here.. There's absolutely NO mention while setting up that paypal will be revealing your name and location. To top that off, now ANYONE can simply curl the paypal.me/$$$ url, replacing $$ and start collecting the names, and locations of people. This is a CLEAR security risk, and should be addressed as such, you're essentially putting the following informaiton onto the internet: 1) Real full name is exposed 2) Location is exposed 3) The fact they use paypal is exposed. These three things will lead to a massive increase in phishing attempts. Not to mention, by exposing the real full name, and location, nefarious scammers can now take that information and troll social media networks, and start collecting even more personal data... The fact that paypal is unable, or unwilling to see this as the security risk it really is, shows just how dedicated they are to increasing profits, regardless of the risk, and exposure being thurst upon their customers.
