Solution 1: Disable the proxy settings in your browser
This problem can occur when your proxy settings are set to “Automatically detect”. To change this setting, go to Tools -> Options -> Under the hood in Google Chrome, and under Network click Change proxy settings, then click LAN settings in the new window, and un-check Automatically detect. You may need to restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Solution 2: Clear browser cache
Clearing your browser’s cache can often fix log in and/or registration problems. In Google Chrome, go to Tools -> Options -> Under the hood, under Privacy click on Clear browsing data, check/tick everything inside the window and then click on Clear browsing data.
Solution 3: Temporary disable the option “Check for server certificate revocation”
It’s not recommended to let this option stay disabled. However, you can temporary disable it and try to access to paypal, then re-enable it again after you’ve done using paypal. To disable this option, go to Tools -> Options -> Under the hood, under Security uncheck Check for server certificate revocation.
If for whatever reason you are still unable to login to your Paypal account after trying all the steps above, it might probably be a server side problem. Sit back and have a cup of tea and chill out. Try again in a few hours. If you are still unable to access to paypal even after hours of waiting, you should contact Paypal customer support to seek for possible solutions.
