Usually, we realize that our PayPal password has been compromised; occasionally, we logon someplace, such as an internet café, and forget to log out. We’re going to walk you through the process of changing your PayPal password step by step.

Reset your PayPal Password if you’ve forgotten it

 

You may quickly forget your password, much more so if you do not utilize a password manager to preserve your login credentials. When this occurs, you may rely on PayPal’s function that enables you to reset your password. Bear in mind that this function does not allow you to retrieve your previous password; it simply allows you to create a new one. Along with instructions on how to change your PayPal password, we’ll cover how to reset your Forgotten PayPal password.

1. Begin by accessing the PayPal sign-in page.

2. Step 2: Omit the username and password fields. Select the Having login issues? link. PayPal provides a screen titled “Need assistance with your password?” Enter your PayPal email address and click Next.

3. Step 3: PayPal verifies your identification in four ways: by text message, email, security questions, or by verifying your credit card information. PayPal delivers a six-digit number whether you want to get a text message or an email. This should be entered in the confirmation area that displays. Continue.

4. Step 4: Using the given form, establish a new password and confirm it once again. When finished, click Save. Then consider storing the password somewhere secure to avoid losing it again, or using a password manager to keep track of and protect the password.

If you have several email accounts, make sure you select the correct one to get the verification code. If you’ve forgotten your PayPal email address, you may recover it by clicking the Forgot your email? option on the log-in screen. PayPal allows you to specify up to three email addresses associated with the account during the account’s creation. Select Next to get a reset email including all of the procedures necessary to regain access to your account.
