Not working on iOS 11.3 PayPal app
After activating vip on my paypal, it worked charm on browsers, but nevertheless, when I tried to log in via PayPal app on iOS., the messages displays « no longer supports old vip security » I had to uninstall PayPal app, and stick to only browsers... please launch an update to fix this issue. Good luck
I need to use this app now to login to my employers website for employees but every time I open the app on my phone it just closes it. For some reason it will not open on my iPhone 6s& I’ve reported this issue several times to the makers of the app and out IT team at my job and nothing still has been fixed! Super inconvenient when I want to check ANYTHING about work from home 😒
Works 100% of the time for me. Easy to use and quick response time. I am not sure why it gets such low reviews. Likely user error.
