What other 2-step verification options can I use after PayPal stops supporting Symantec VIP?
From June 24, 2021, we’ll stop supporting Symantec VIP as a 2-step verification option for account login. If you’re using the Symantec VIP security key or Symantec authenticator app for 2-step verification, you’ll no longer be able to use it after this date.
Please update the 2-step verification with a different method at your earliest convenience.
Here are your alternative options to Symantec VIP:
- Mobile phone SMS
- Authenticator apps: Options include Authy, Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, DUO, YubiKey Auth App, and many others.
- YubiKey 5 Series: All of its desktop, authenticator app, and hard tokens will work for primary and secondary users via the “Authenticator Option” in the 2-step verification process.
