Get an extra layer of security when you use PayPal. That’s because all your financial information (like your credit card number) is securely stored and encrypted on Paypal servers, so you don’t need to share your financial information with the person you’re buying from.
In addition, your transactions are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by a dedicated team of security specialists. Their mission is to identify suspicious activity and help protect you from fraudulent transactions.
If you ever notice a charge on your account, for something you didn’t authorize, report it immediately. Paypal will secure your account and launch an investigation to find out what’s going on. If Paypal find that someone has used your PayPal account without your permission (for example, someone stole your account password), or there was an error (for example, money was incorrectly taken from your account), they will cover you for the full amount of every eligible unauthorized transaction.
Finally, if a transaction doesn’t go as planned, or you’re worried about anything at all, like fraud or phishing, Paypal would make it easy for you to report issues, and get help. On top of all this, they provide additional protection through Purchase Protection and Seller Protection programs, described below.
