I contacted Paypal and this is the reply I got. How do I remove the option of one-time code from being used on my account? I am NOT referring to 2FA bt the one-time code to get access to my account without using the password. This is an ridiculous breach of customer safety 12:31 PM SE Hi. I understand that you want to remove the one time passcode to get access on the account. Upon checking, I am afraid there is no option to remove the one time code to get access on the account. If the system is asking for the one time code, it needs to be entered for the accounts safety to make sure that the account holder is the one accessing the account. Thank you for contacting PayPal and for being a valued customer.

I must say this is a fundamentally outrageous idea. Why have passwords and 2FA when someone can steal your phone and have direct access to your paypal account with no security????? 12:43 PM Also, to not even have the option to disable it as a customer is crazy. 12:45 PM I'm sorry to hear about it. As much as I want to disable the one time passcode to access the account, we have no option to do so. Also, in 2FA, we are sending you a one time passcode to be entered to confirm that you are the one accessing the account. For now, if the system will really ask for a one time passcode, then it needs to be entered. Thank you for contacting PayPal and for being a valued customer.

Same here. 22/08/2022 I have password plus 2FA enabled but this stupid one-time code thing negates that security. I cannot believe in these times of cybertheft that any company providing a banking service would allow such lax security protocols. I have removed my cards from my wallet and I will only hold a minimal amount in credit until this is fixed.
