Paypal is the dominate payment processor in online world. People working in internet knows it well. There are many thieves around the world to get our account key or to hack our Paypal account so they can get our hard earned money or want to be in trouble, just for their fun. If we are in prevention, we could more problems from them and could save our account in most times. Here are a few tips for you.

Always the main mantra in online world is never share your password to anyone. It is for Paypal account too. Never share or write your password anywhere in papers or in any files in your computer. This would save you always.

Never click any links. Most of the cheaters are smart enough to send you mails showing as someone trying to steal your money and with link directing towards Paypal account. But in fact, it is not the true Paypal link. There is the trick they do. It would be with some letter change and the link directs you towards their site which mimics Paypal site and when you start typing your mail id and password, they would just save it and later lock it from you.

Another useful tip I learned from my friends is use different mail ids for your Paypal account. Yes you have that choice in Paypal to add about 7 accounts in the same Paypal account for personal account. You could use different mail id directing the same Paypal account for different sites. It would help you avoid some identical thefts.

These are only few tips for you to learn how to protect your Paypal account. If we are preventive, we could solve more problems even before they are happened.

That is again a nice article dear friend! Now a days paypal is transferring our amount within three days after they receive to our Bank account in India, so I think it is much safer now!
