To keep your eBay account secure, we recommend:
- Changing your password regularly
- Frequently checking that your contact information is correct
- Watching out for the signs of spoof emails, which are intended to access members' passwords and other sensitive information
If you suspect your account has been taken over, contact us immediately. If your account has been compromised, we'll work with you to secure it. Read our guides below for more information.
For your protection, we may place a temporary hold on your account until we can safely return control of it to you. We can also help you remove unauthorised fraudulent bids or listings.
It's a good idea to check My eBay and your preferences occasionally to make sure no one has used your account or made any unauthorised changes. If you see anything has changed without your authorisation, contact us.
