Paypal terminated my Account because use of a VPN is against their terms and conditions
I’m in good standing with both Paypal and Ebay, with 100% reviews etc etc. Today, Paypal just terminated my account..
My high security VPN triggered the suspension of the Paypal account. I was told that use of a VPN is “against Paypal’s terms and conditions”.
Paypal will not allow me to use a VPN. **arched eyebrows** So lets get this straight. I’m on a super secure, highly encrypted VPN, yet I’ve just had my PayPal account terminated for “security reasons”.
Yep, that’s about it.
Paypal don’t like “high security”, I can only stay with them, if I go back to “low security”. Who are Paypal to decide my security settings? And insist I use low security to boot.
Lifehacker made a wonderful comment, PayPal like all large corporations have started to “suck”.
How can Paypal even argue that a VPN is against their terms and conditions? Is a virus checker against their terms?
I’m surprised that they haven’t prohibited the use of virus checkers and anti cookie software as “a breach of terms and conditions” – and a breach of security.
Have you ever heard such nonsense ?
Amazon and other shopping sites are all happy with security and VPN’s. But Paypal aren’t. So who has the problem?
Well, here’s guessing Amazon have just increased their already enormous market share… and I can’t imagine why.
