    PayPal doesn’t seem to be working right now.. 5th Dec 17 at 12:03 PM
    I’ve just been on eBay . Pressed the buy it now button . The select button is grey not blue .
    I then went on PayPal app . It comes up with I’m not a robot and then wants me to tick boxes .
    Anyone else have this problem ?
    Should I be worried ?
    Thanks

    I went onto PayPal .com ignoring the PayPal app and it seems normally functional there . On Ebay the thing I was gonna purchase by pressing pay now has not been recognised in my purchased folder
    Frightened to buy anything now

    Something is not right. Usually that "I'm not a robot" comes up if it thinks you're using a VPN etc.

    Download Malwarebytes, do a scan.

    I tried on my iPad . (Broadband problem fixed ) .
    It looks like Vodafone may have been protecting me ,as I was on 4g since weds. I haven!!!8217;t bought anything on Ebay via the phone ..always iPad . I have browsed and that was okay . Looks like all is fine .
