You get the same security you’re used to with PayPal:
- We automatically encrypt your confidential info in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, our server checks that you're using an approved browser one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.

Will any of my information be shared?
The only information available publicly through your PayPal.Me link will be your Profile photo (if you have one), the name associated with the account, a cover photo if you added one, the personal note, and your city and state/country according to your preferences.
This information is displayed to reassure your friends and family that they are paying the right person.
Someone else is using a PayPal.Me link that infringes my intellectual property rights. What can I do about that?
Use of a PayPal.Me link that infringes the intellectual property rights of a third person is prohibited under the PayPal.Me Terms and Conditions. It is our policy to deactivate any infringing links that are reported to us together with adequate supporting information. To submit a report, please follow the instructions in our Infringement Report Policy.
What are PayPal Confirmed Charities?
PayPal Confirmed Charities is a process for confirming that every entity that registers with PayPal as a charity is properly registered and in good-standing according to local regulations, and that these charities own the bank accounts they provide to PayPal, ensuring funds you donate reach the charity you selected. Whenever you donate through PayPal.Me, look for the ribbon symbol next to the charity name to ensure that the charity is confirmed.
