That line paypal has been giving about not recognizing your device is either a glitch they been having with there system or its just total BS SO THEY can see if u have access to the phone number used when creating the account

I'm assuming the number used when u created the account u no longer have access to or you already tried it and it's says cannot verify ??

Be careful about using something given out to Welfare recipents for your business?
Far as I recall about the program, it is only for SNAP recipents.



I think if you had transferred your cookies paypal would not have given you grief.

Check posts by DmShark25. There have been some other threads on the topic.

On my cell phone so hard to quote.

You're best bet is to transfer money to another account, that usually works for me.

Default Re: Paypal does not recognize my computer

You know I just had this happen to me today. I went to transfer funds to my bank account and it said that it didnt recognize my device and asked to verify me. Asked to go to get text or phone call I chose to get phone call then it said that it couldnt do it because the number was not registered in my name?? Tried text, said same thing. The number is registered in my name (stealth name and is thru pinger)
I just dont understand. It was to withdraw funds to my bank account, an account that has been on there for like 5 months.
Its a paypal account that is 80% verified and has all limits lifted, cc verfied and bank account verified.

Can't recommend this.

OP, check your browser settings - is it deleting cookies EVERY time you exit?

Just got the notification about not recognizing my computer too when trying to withdraw. Something must be up for so many to be seeing this now. I had to add a new number simply because I changed my phone since I was first verified but I got the automated phone call no problem and typed in the PIN and was all set to withdraw. Hope that's the end of it.

Well, I just got this message too. I selected the call feature and it says the usual "this number appears not to be registered to you". Now it's asking for SS# only.
