Anyone Noticed PP Now Requires Drivers Lic/SS Image?

Went to send a friend some cash and PP won't let me do anything - can't send $, can't even transfer money out of my sitting balance - until I upload an image of my drivers license/military ID, or social security card. I'm not real thrilled with this as I don't believe their security (or anyone's from what we've seen the past decade) is competent with this valuable info. Thoughts?

I use PP maybe 4-5x/yr and have had no issues in the past.

Is it just for person-to-person transfer? I use paypal for online shopping fairly regularly, and have not seen this requirement.

I sent money just yesterday using their app on my iPhone with no such issue.

A few years ago I noticed they have a page where you could enter all that info and more, like passport number and other sensitive info... I found that very intrusive. But it was optional... so far they did not force me to provid more info.

"Patriot Act"... barf smiley . And yeah, banking is now required to get all kinds of invasive information. Paypal is a bank.

I sent money this morning to a friend and had no problem. There are several new ways to send money to people, so if PP gets a little too intrusive, I'll take my business elsewhere.

egad. I know we need security but I'm getting frustrated. For one, I cannot get rid of two-step authentication I am told by Apple...and I think OS 11 has to have it.

In my case, it looks like it applies to everything...I can't even access my $47 cash balance. Redic.
