How do I update my email notification preferences?

You can decide which emails you want us to send you and whether you want to receive promotions from our partners. You can also choose to receive emails in an HTML or plain text format.

Here's how you can view and edit your notification emails in your account profile:

  1. Click the Settings icon next to "Log out."
  2. Click Notifications.
  3. Check and uncheck the boxes according to your preference.

Here's how to manage the notifications on the PayPal app: 

  1. Tap your profile picture
  2. Tap Notification preferences
  3. Choose which notifications you want to get in your app.

For your security, we always email you when you request your password or change your name, your address, your email address, your password, or your bank account. We also email you about important changes to our legal agreements or policies.
