Re: PayPal Account

Sorry, but that is EVIL! I have refused putting in any cell # when I could for other services looking to set up 2-factor authentication--no way, no-how, thank you very much! Totally with you, and hope you come up with a solution.


Something is wrong, I know it, if I don't keep my attention on eternity. May I be the tiniest nail in the house of the universe, tiny but useful.

Certainly do appreciate your thoughts, but:

I've had a paypal account for almost 20 years and always accessed it
just fine using a windows computer and various screen readers. There is
nothing wrong with the access, even now; however, as part of the logon
procedure, they arre forcing me to put in my cell number as a security
measure. And then theyy (say) they will text me a code that I will need
to access my account.

I will NOT N O T !! put in my cell number! I DO NOT D O N O T !!
accept text messages!

There must be a way to dismiss that screen and go on to my account. The
screen has no skip or cancel choices. I tried all 0s, and a made-up
number. The 0s were not accepted and they did try to text my security
code to the made-up number. I marginally abused they're customer
representative on the phone. All she offered was to close the account.

PayPal has been good and convenient over the years. It's a service I
don't want to loose. I just thought maybe someone else here might have
had the same experience and would have suggestions?

Thank you.

Hi everyone:

If you would like to open a PayPal account, I found it easy to do using an app for my iPhone. I realize that not everyone has a cell phone or a smart phone, but that might be the easiest way to start and run your PayPal account.

Just my thoughts,

Hi all,

Contact them by phone. No, I don't have the number.
