Anybody using 2FA with Paypal?  Ive looked it up on the net and according to a bunch of different sites I should have a "Security Key" option under the account settings / security.  Yet I cannot find one!

 

Tried finding a way of contacting them to see if Im just being blind or stupid but they made it damned hard to contact them as well!

That link comes up as no longer available to me.  Ive searched their own support and 2FA doesnt seem to be listed at all.  Maybe they just dont support it.  Which would be weird as well these days.  And if they dont, why did they then drop it?  Even weirder...

Interesting.  I logged out and went to that link again.  And it came up.  So looks like it has to do with my account.  Maybe because its an NZ account?

Yeah I can't see that option either, and am very surprised it is not available for a service like PayPal.

Yes 2FA is only for the US and UK (i think) but it's not in NZ at all. I tried looking for it about a year or 2 ago and the options were not there then.  Best thing is to install the paypal app and set it to tell you when a payment has been made.
