PayPal Account Protection and Security

Last updated: February 21, 2021

One of the most significant benefits of using PayPal to make casino deposits is the security it offers. PayPal acts as a secure encrypted bridge between your bank account and an online casino. While it is right to say the vast majority of online casinos are safe and secure, it is nonetheless always a good idea to limit the number of times you hand out your bank details. When using PayPal, you never have to provide personal bank information to a gambling establishment, or anyone else for that matter.

Beyond secure encryption, PayPal also offers fraud prevention benefits and purchase protection. Fraud protection seeks and blocks charges made fraudulently from your account. Purchase protection, on the other hand, provides the account owner with the ability to be reimbursed if they do not receive the item or service purchased.

While PayPal itself is entirely safe, it should go without saying that users should never give login details to anyone, much the same way you would never give someone your pin code to your bank debit card.

Another good practice for keeping your account safe and secure is always to log out of your account after use. This is particularly relavent if you use your account from a mobile app directly. Failing to ensure you log out of your PayPal account (or casino account) leaves your account(s) vulnerable if your phone is lost or stolen. To keep your accounts 100% safe, always log out after use.
