Recently, I felt the need to change my PayPal username, which is the same as my account’s primary email address, because at some point I actually thought that my account had been compromised. However, after looking around several forums and articles on the web, I couldn’t find any information on how to effectively change my username and email address, in fact, most sites I visited said it couldn’t be done.
Despite all the bad information, I decided to log into my PayPal account and try to do it myself, and guess what? It worked perfectly! So, after completing the process, I decided that wanted to help other people too, and that’s the reason why I’m writing this today, to share a useful information with all our readers here at HowtoAccount.com, because we know for fact that at least some of you will appreciate it a lot.
