Default PayPal asks for ID even through PC version

Did you get the limit on your Paypal today/yesterday? Am I the only one who is asked by Paypal to take selfies even through the computer version?

Location of account: UK

I logged through Octo browser and Paypal was still asking me to take selfies and scan my ID.

Anybody else having the same problem?

Default Re: PayPal asks for ID even through PC version

Post a bit more info please.

Was the account created on a mobile phone or on a desktop PC?

Was it a business or personal account?

When did this limit appear? On creation? Adding a card? Adding a bank? Receiving a payment?

I havent made any UK paypal accounts in the last week or so but have had no issues / seen no changes when confirming identity on accounts right up to and including today. Process was the same as it has been for the last few years. ID and address proof uploaded. No selfie.

The only noticable change I have seen is in the document review time. For more or less 18 months straight now documents would get reviewed within 7 or 8 hours of submission. Since 4 days ago the review time has been 40 to 60 hours approx

The account was created through my phone. But it doesn't matter because two weeks ago, I created an account this way, but there was no such confirmation by selfies. It's a simple limitation after sale with 4 puncts.

Here's this limitation - https://imgur.com/a/t4wWg8U , https://imgur.com/a/5nQF6w5

In this thread, people have already posted about this problem that paypal is asking them for selfies on their camera. They were advised to log in via the PC version. But today I went through the PC version and Paypal is still asking me for selfies. Did anyone get this kind of limit today/yesterday? Are you having the same problem?

The solution is not to create accounts on a phone.......

Do you think that if you register through a computer selfie check won't show up? It'll have to be checked.

Have you tried another browser? Plus the images you sent seem to be through a phone browser?

No, I haven't tried it.
I just took screenshots on my phone. I ask people maybe they received a limit yesterday or today and can tell. I'm sure this is a required feature. And all further checks within the limit will require you to scan the document and make the selfie check

Iíve just read on the pp website that the scan is only available on mobile. I think your browser might be the issue.

They know he has access to a camera because the account was opened on a phone.

Perhaps there were settings in the anti-detection browser regarding the video camera or because the account was registered from a phone. That's why I'm asking, maybe someone registered an account yesterday/today only from a computer without a video camera and through Mozilla
portable

But a week ago I registered an account via phone, and when it asked for a selfie, I logged in through Mozilla and uploaded the document as usual, without a selfie.

Today I logged in through antidetect and was still asked about a selfie

My experience is that I set up through phone, got limited then used chrome on a reset laptop.

Verification changed to normal in the laptop.

Maybe your anti detection is taking you to the mobile site.

My experience was this week btw.

There's a good chance the "loophole" you were using has been identified and closed out.

Have you tried to access the account on a PC that does not have a webcam?

Well then we will all have to take selfies and scan documents. My friend writes that he tried this on a portable browser without a camera and he had the same problem

I've told you repeatedly how to avoid this but you don't seem to want to listen. Don't create accounts on your phone.

No doubt there will come a day when Paypal will require this on all accounts but at the moment they do not ask for selfies when using desktop computers for creation and usage.
