Since July 21st I was no longer able to log to my Paypal Account.

None of my 2FA tokens (soft or hard) were working.


I called Paypal Support and the agent told me Paypal killed the feature without telling anybody.

Worst of all, all the links still mention Verisign VIP tokens as a available but the system will not allow you to activate one due to "TEMPORARY COMMUNICATION ERROR" and another message says we should call support for further assistance in activating 2FA.


Apparently the ONLY way now to do 2FA with Paypal is using a smartphone.


They say they value our security, passwords are important... bla bla bla bla.


But they take out an important tool to improve our security.


Anyone else is concerned about it?
