Using VPN To Access Paypal Account
|Keep Solid Unlimited VPN|
To my surprise I can access my Paypal account when using VPN, I choose the Singapore server because this is the closest server from my current location in Bandung, Indonesia.
Conclusion on the problem Paypal Access Denied
I cannot access Paypal because they banned the IP address. I didn’t do anything harm with my Paypal account. All I have done was creating a new Paypal for a Company account using the same computer.
The other possibility is because this is a dynamic IP address where I can get a different IP address from the ISP whenever I connect to the ISP. I got an IP address where coincidentally banned by Paypal.
Hopefully this posting helpful when you face the same problem.
The correct solution for Paypal Access Denied Problem
On Nov 23, 2019, I can access Paypal’s website from my home internet without doing anything to fix the Access Denied problem, so the problem gone by itself. So it was a temporary problem I guess.
I found on https://www.paypal-community.com/ that some people are having the same problem with a slightly different error message:
Access Denied You don’t have permission to access http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webs
Paypal is one of the first and biggest money processor on the Internet. They want keep everything secure. With this policy sometimes we found its not practical to the user. If we can understand that what they are doing today is to keep the system secure.
I don’t know how many per day Paypal being attacked by the people who want to get access to the website and get away with money.
I myself a Paypal user since more than 7 years ago and found that they system is secure. I never get any serious problem except the money rate which is relatively high, compare to the local Bank rate.
Note: If you are at home you can work around the problem by turning off the modem for 10 minutes then turn back on. The purpose is to get a new IP address that not blocked by Paypal. But if the Paypal blocked a series of IP addresses and not a single IP address this trick may not work. I usually turn off the modem at night and turn back on in the morning, so that the IP address is changed. So my problem accessing Paypal is usually a temporary problem, I can access Paypal on the other day.
I hope your paypal access denied problem will resolved successfully.
