Paypal forgotton password endless loop

I have forgotten my password from a paypal account I set up a couple years ago and when I try and rest the password using the "forgot your password" promts they send me an email with a link that sends me to a page with a warning message that the link is outdated and to type in my email address etc. there is no place to type anything in. I can not register for a new account b/c they already have an account set up for that address and I can not get into this account b/c I do not have a password. Death spiral... any suggestions... dont say contact Paypal there is not a human on the other end of the line to answer any of my problems

Have a paypal account from years ago and I don't remember my log in. My e-mail address is jshjohnson1@aol.com. I tried to get everything straight and supposedly money was put my checking account but


You need to login to your PayPal account to link it to your current bank account. If you cannot recall either your PayPal email address or password simply follow the links on the https://www.paypal.com login page and select Forgot your email address or password?

I FORGOT MY PASSWORD FOR PAYPAL


Click the Trouble with Login just below the LOGIN button. There is a link for forgotten passwords right there, and it will send help (either new password instructions or actually send the password to your email account). Should be easy from there.

I'm having trouble using my PayPal account and wonder, if I have forgotten my password? Also, I got an e mail saying that it was from PayPal and that you need to update my account before something...


Since this is sensitive information I would go to paypal.com and actually chat with a support agent, or call or send them an email regarding the information.

I would like to cancel both my accounts on pay-pal so i canhave just one account but a forgot the password and username can pay-pal erase them both


If there's no balance or transaction with the forgotten account, you need not to worry, it'll automatically be deactivated after few months but your original/existing account will be functioning properly without any hindrance or obstruction. When an account is not active or transaction being done for several months, paypal will send you an email to your email address with the message describing about the deactivation of the account, if you don't take any action, it'll be deactivated.

It's better if you can at least remember the email address [Note: your username is your email address] of your account so that you can deactivate it yourself. But still you can try to close it using the "Forgotten your email address or password?" form.
To recover your email address and your your password, use this form...
Forgotten your email address? (you'll need to provide your name full name, zip code, phone number)
To reset your password use this form;
Forgotten your password? (you'll need to provide your email address)
After you retrieve your password or recover your email address, login to your paypal account, click "profile" and select "Close Account" from the options available, you'll be presented with a warning if you are sure or not, click yes and continue with it.

I hope you could understand my instructions, if you have problem with my instructions, please let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

A long time ago i set up a PayPal account and never used it, because I did not know how. Now I would like to try it but can not remember how or what name and password I set it up under. How can I start...


Hi,

Your Paypal account id is usually your e-mail address with which you registered your Paypal account. So, enter the email id and Paypal password in the login box or if you have forgotten the password, click on "Forgot your Password" link on the https://www.paypal.com page. You will then receive an email from Paypal with instructions to reset the password.

If you want to create a new account, click on the "Sign Up" link on https://www.paypal.com/ and select the account type and provide your details on the pages which open.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

Hi there,

If you have forgotten your e-mail address to PayPal click here: Forgot e-mail address

If you have forgotten your Password to PayPal click here: Forgot password

This should help you get into your PayPal account. PayPal allows you to reverse any transactions so if any money is missing you can claim it back.

I suggest you change your password to your PayPal account as this looks like there might be suspicious activity happening on your account.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Forgotten password


On the main Paypal page, Click on "Have you forgotten your email address or password?" (this is a choice of two links). If you choose email address, you can type in details that you may remember such as your name/address, credit card/ bank account details etc. and it will then allow you to supply a new email address and password. If you clicked "password" then you can type in your email address and your password will be sent to you.
