Is it really possible that your Paypal account can be hacked?

Im using a private computer at home and only my brother and I are using it. I'm just worried since I have been joining and earning thru PTC sites and other onlin earning sites, I'm just worried or maybe wondering how they can hack your Paypal account. Is Paypal not secured enough to prevent these kind of situations?

Hello, Yes, anything can be hacked now a days, no matter how much protection you have on it. The Internet is not as safe as they make it out to sound sometimes with all this virus protection, protection with passwords on websites, etc. I've had friends who had their settings set because it was a public computer and not to save anything and still had problems. It's weird but it happens, if hackers really want someone's information they can obtain it and get away with it. All I can tell people is try to be as careful as possible. I've had issues with Paypal before, my account was hacked into and money taken out and they didn't even have my Paypal card, I was so pissed off and than they told me I wasn't protected, I don't get it.

I have had my paypal account now for about 7 years, and i have never had a problem, but i guess that anything is possible. as long as no one gets your pass word you should have no problem.
