Managing Your PayPal Profile
Managing your PayPal profile information is important to ensure secure access and the best experience using their services. Your personal information, login credentials, payment methods, and account settings are all part of your PayPal profile. Keeping this information up-to-date and accurate is key.
To access your PayPal profile, simply login to your PayPal account and click the “Profile” or “Settings” link, depending on your account type. This will take you to your account overview page where you can view and edit your personal information, login info, and more.
Updating Your Personal Information
Double-check that your legal first and last name, mailing address, email address, and phone number are correct and up to date. PayPal uses this contact information to verify your identity and may place holds on your account if any information is inaccurate or out of date.
Be sure to provide an email address you use regularly since PayPal may send account notices or confirmations to that email. You can add additional email addresses as needed, such as for a business account.
Check that your date of birth is also correct. While not displayed publicly, your birthdate helps PayPal verify your identity and account ownership.
If anything needs updating, click ‘Edit’ next to the relevant section to make changes. Provide as much detail as possible to avoid issues accessing your account or making payments/withdrawals.
Once you’ve made any needed updates, be sure to save the changes to update your PayPal profile. Keeping your personal information current will help ensure you have smooth, secure transactions and access to your PayPal balance and services.
