PayPal Data Sharing

March 07, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

I found out about this through one of my Pinboard feeds. PayPal documents around 600 different third parties they share user data with. I only use PayPal as a last resort but I might be changing that too. It’s really no more secure than just using a credit card online plus I’ve read plenty of stories about how hard it can be to reverse fraudulent charges through PayPal.
