What is Paypal one touch

One Touch is paypal’s optional feature that allows you to complete purchases faster or to make deposits in online casinos to play pokies in real time, while still helping to keep your full financial information more secure. When you log in to PayPal, with your mobile or from a desktop, tablet or laptop you can choose to stay logged in to PayPal for easier, faster checkout across all eligible stores. You’ll skip the PayPal log in screen on future purchases once you’ve opted in to staying logged in when paying with PayPal, using the same device and same browser.

So this means activating One Touch allows you to skip the PayPal log in screen when you shop with PayPal so you land directly on the payment page and breeze through checkout. It also saves the hassle of remembering and entering your password. For security purposes, PayPal always ask you to log in to update your personal or financial information.

PayPal help protect your financial information when using One Touch as Paypal has world-class fraud detection tools, and these same tools are applied to One Touch.

Note that you have to be using the same device and browser combination to use One Touch. If you try to add a new shipping address or payment type, you’ll be prompted to log in again.

One Touch is limited for your protection. You can make payments, but you can’t withdraw money or access your settings from the PayPal payment screen. This helps prevent those who may share or use your device from gaining access to sensitive information.

Also you should not share your device if you’re using One Touch.

If your mobile’s lost or stolen, log in to your PayPal account and change the security settings under “Profile” or call Paypal so that you can protect your PayPal account from unauthorized use.

Always activate One Touch only on your personal devices and not on a public/shared computer/device to avoid misuse of your PayPal account.

You only authenticate and authorize use of One Touch on the first eligible site or app on that device and browser. If you’re using the same device and browser, you won’t be asked to log in again on any eligible website when shopping with PayPal. If you update your PayPal personal or financial information, PayPal always ask you to log in. This means once you’ve enabled One Touch, you’ll stay logged in on the same device and browser on all eligible websites, unless you turn it off or don’t use it on that device and browser for 6 months.
