How do I confirm my mobile phone number with PayPal?

When you add your mobile number to your PayPal account, we send you a text message with a confirmation code. Enter the code in your PayPal account to confirm your mobile number. For security reasons, the code expires in 15 minutes.

To resend the code from a web browser:

  1. Go to your Settings page.
  2. In the Phone section, next to the number you'd like to confirm, click Confirm.
  3. Click Resend confirmation code. When you receive the code, enter it and click Validate.

To resend the code from the PayPal app:

  1. Tap the Settings cog in the top right corner.
  2. Tap Personal Info.
  3. Tap Phone Numbers.
  4. Tap the number you want to confirm, then tap Resend confirmation. The code can only be entered on a web browser.
