Unsolicited security code

New Community Member

I've received a text from PayPal with a security code when I've not been on the paypal site.

Hello @LJAmon,


Welcome to the PayPal Community! I can certainly understand how receiving unsolicited security codes may be alarming. I would normally recommend logging into your account and changing your password just as a precaution. However, one potential way to fix this is to update the email address you use to login with PayPal. Hopefully by updating your login information, that security code will no longer be sent to your phone. If you do not have a PayPal account, please reach out to our Customer Support teams for further assistance in this matter.


Good luck,


- Jon K
