paypal hack no verificationHow to Keep Your Paypal Account Safe From Phishing**The phishing technique is the most popular because the authentic-looking email fools so many people. Here is a sample of one such email (I get about 2 or 3 of these a month).**Paypal security**However, if the email was put together by a sloppy hacker, you’ll notice that with most email applications, if you place the mouse over the link (but don’t click on it!), you’ll see the actual link at the bottom.**paypal security measures**As you can see, “orionresidence.com” isn’t exactly Paypal.com. However, even if this bottom link does report “Paypal.com,” the easiest method you can use to keep your paypal account safe is by never clicking any link inside a Paypal email. If you want to check your account, open a new browser window, go directly to Paypal, and log in.**While avoiding “phishy” Paypal emails will protect you from the bulk of problems, there’s still the matter of hard-core hackers. These are the ones who are a bit more savvy, and will look for ways to guess your password, search your computer for login information, or install keyboard logging software on your PC. There are ways to thwart all of those attempts as well.**How to Keep Your Paypal Account Safe with a Strong Password**First, sign up for a new free email account and use that email for your Paypal profile, but don’t use it for any other purpose. Most hackers like to scour likely social networks or websites, like eBay, for email addresses that are likely also used in Paypal accounts, and then target those email addresses with their phishing or virus email campaigns. Also, change your Paypal password and the password of your email account, to a difficult-to-guess password that includes upper and lower case letters, numbers, and at least one or two special characters like an exclamation point or the pound (#) sign.**If you need some tips for creating solid passwords MakeUseof author Damien Oh had an excellent article about it earlier, see .**For even stronger Paypal security, consider using a security key. When you’re logged into your Paypal account, click on “Security Center” at the top, “Security Tools” on the left menu bar, and then “Paypal Security Overview.” You’ll see the following screen.**Paypal Security Key**When you click “Get Yours Now,” you can choose between a hardware key, or a mobile key. The hardware key costs $5 for shipping & handling, but it features a digital code that changes every thirty seconds. You can’t log into the Paypal account without it, and it’s virtually unhackable. The mobile key method is free. After you enable your account for it, you simply text Paypal for the code, and they text message the security key back to you.Safety and protection policies*Exclamation mark with arrows pointing at each other*This section appears to contradict itself. Please see the talk page for more information. (March 2016)*The PayPal Buyer Protection Policy states that the customer may file a buyer complaint if he or she did not receive an item or if the item he or she purchased was significantly not as described. The customer can open a dispute within 180 days (for registered UK residents 180 days, changed 14 June 2014) from the date of payment and escalate it to a claim within 20 days from opening the dispute. If the buyer used a credit card, he or she might get a refund via chargeback from his or her credit-card company. However, in the UK, where such a purchaser is entitled to specific statutory protections (that the credit card company is a second party to the purchase and is therefore equally liable in law if the other party defaults or goes into liquidation) under Section 75 Consumer Credit Act 1979, the purchaser loses this legal protection if the card payment is processed via PayPal.A charge a credit card company may assess to a customer’s account if the customer attempts to pay a credit card bill with a check that is returned unpaid. Returned payment fees discourage credit card customers from submitting checks that they know will not clear because their checking account has insufficient funds. A credit card customer might otherwise submit a check that won’t clear to try to avoid incurring late payment fees and interest by creating the appearance of having paid the credit card bill on time.**BREAKING DOWN 'Returned Payment Fee'*To find out whether your credit card has a returned payment fee and how much it is, check the card’s terms and conditions. They will typically specify a returned payment fee of “up to $35.” If it’s your first returned payment, the fee might be lower — perhaps $25. If your minimum payment due was only $10, your returned payment fee might be just $10. Otherwise, you will likely pay the full $35. Sometimes you can convince the credit card company to waive the fee if you’ve never had a returned payment before and your account is in good standing.
