Some of the affected users also report that they had activated 2-factor authentication. In addition, there should not have been any unusual login activities in the affected account. PayPal and Google are said not to have sent any warning emails about strange activities either. Thus, one can rule out that it is due to the user and a possibly insecure account. While Google and PayPal currently ProTo find the problem, we currently recommend deleting PayPal as a payment method from Google Pay. It is also important to remove any existing links between Google Pay and PayPal. It seems to be a Proproblem to act in combination of the two services.
