A global upgrade for your security

Help us protect your data according to global encryption standards by updating your browser by June 2018. An outdated version exposes you to more online risk. Don’t worry, the update won’t take long.

Update Browser for Personal Upgrade Settings for Business

What is this all about?

We are enhancing our security encryption protocols to meet the new PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) required by all bank and digital payment services. This upgraded security encryption is only compatible with updated web browsers. PayPal, as well as other e-commerce sites, will no longer support outdated versions after June 2018.

What does this mean for you?

All your financial information remains secure during this upgrade. All you need to do is to update your browser for each device you use PayPal on. This upgrade not only reduces your vulnerability to data theft, but also helps ensure that:

• The connection between you and the website is private
• Both your identity and the website’s identity can be verified
• Your transactions and information occur on an encrypted network

What happens if your mobile or web browser is not upgraded after June 2018?

If you are still using an outdated browser, you will no longer be able to use your PayPal account or pay through PayPal. You will also experience difficulty with online payments on other e-commerce sites.
