Tips to help protect your password:
Never share your password with anyone.
Create passwords that are hard to guess and don't use personal information. Be sure to include uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
Use different passwords for each of your online accounts
Paypal users should always go directly to www.paypal.com and sign into their accounts when they receive email notifications, instead of clicking on the links in the same email notification. Once they have sign-in, they will be notified of changes or updates. Doing this will prevent PayPal users from becoming victims of phishing scams.
PayPal users, who were tricked by the phishing email messages, should change their passwords immediately and check their accounts for discrepancies, and report those discrepancies (if there is any) to PayPal.
