Hacker News - Ask HN: PayPal 2-factor utterly broken?


Recommended Posts

Is it just me?

I just lost our paypal account for my company just by deleting an old phone number in the settings and adding a new one. After logging out there is no way to log back in, they refer me to their hotline.

A similar thing happened years ago when they introduced 2-factor, I never got that account back since I simply couldn't get through on their hotline. I had a private account with an old number, they introduced 2-factor and I missed their emails about it, and when I tried to login later, I was basically locked out.

Honestly we don't need Paypal in my company. So I guess I will heavily advocate against it in any companies I own or work in going forward.
