This problem started in June 2021 and still hasn't been fixed, making my use of PayPal risky.
Thank you for your post.
May I confirm with you again that you are having an inquiry related to banking protection to PayPal site? If yes, kindly go through the explanations below.
Regarding to banking protection does not appear on the second time you logged in to the PayPal site, it can be due to 'cool down' period. There is a 60 second 'cool down' period after ending the previous banking session. If you start a new session during this time, banking protection is not activated.
To help troubleshoot, do the following:
The banking protection banner will only be triggered if you went to a banking website. Some online shopping websites may need your information for your bank and the first request usually will trigger since it will take you to your online bank. However, if the checkout page stays on the same website, it will not trigger banking protection.
Kindly let me know if this helps.
Thank you and stay safe.
One thing I've just discovered is that, for any banking site, I can only get Safe the first time I login, a second time doesn't trigger Safe so I have to log out of my Firefox browser whereupon, on selection of a bank site, Safe functions once again.
SAFE works fine when I open & log in to PayPal - it also opens fine when a shop opens PP (which suggests that all my Firefox settings are correct). But, when opened by a shop, the green border is established but the instant I enter my password (actually the first keystroke), the green SAFE border unwinds & I assume I'm then at risk.
Thank you for your comment.
The URL might not be listed in our OSRP as a banking site. I will check with our team. I have sent you a private message. Kindly provide me with the exact shop's URL where you encountered that error.
