How to Use Two-Factor Authentication with PayPal

If you've been using PayPal for a while, you may have noticed that they now offer two-factor authentication (2FA) as an additional security measure. 2FA is an important way to help protect your account from unauthorized access, and we'll show you how to set it up.

First, you'll need to log into your PayPal account and go to the Security tab. Under "Security Settings", there will be an option for "Two-factor Authentication". Click on that link and follow the instructions to set up 2FA.

You'll need to have a mobile device with you in order to set up 2FA, as you'll need to receive a verification code via text or an app like Google Authenticator. Once you have 2FA setup, you'll be prompted for a code every time you log in to your PayPal account.

If you ever lose your phone or can't receive codes for any reason, don't worry - PayPal also offers backup codes that you can use to access your account. Just be sure to store them somewhere safe!
