Creating a PayPal stealth account seems like a daunting task to a lot of people, but in reality, with the right guide, you can create a stealth account that you can use without getting it flagged. The article below is the only guide you will need for that.
There is no denying that PayPal makes accepting and making payment easy across and within borders. And let face it, there is currently no better alternative that has rivaled it in the aspect of acceptability of the general public. For this reason, it has constantly remained a priority for Internet marketers looking forward to accepting payment from regular Internet users online.
However, PayPal has some stringent rules in place that get accounts flagged easily and even deny users from certain locations access. When this happens, you have only two choices – you either forget about using PayPal or create a stealth PayPal account.
Unfortunately, it turns out that creating a stealth PayPal account is not as easy as it seems. PayPal has got systems in place to detect alternative and multiple paypal accounts. While they allow you to have as many email addresses as you want for accepting payments, all of these are all linked, and a restriction on one would affect the other.
For this reason, you will need to keep accounts separated. In this article, you will be shown how to create a stealth PayPal account from scratch and avoid getting it detected and banned. Before that, let take a look at what are stealth PayPal accounts and why you would want to create them.
What is a PayPal Stealth Account?
In simple terms, a PayPal stealth account is a PayPal account created with different information and identity other than that of the owner. PayPal requires you to use your real information and identity to create accounts. Any account created with a faked identity and even an alias is known as a stealth PayPal account.
They are created in such a way that PayPal would not link them to any other account in their platform. Aside from the fact that stealth PayPal accounts are created with a different identity, every other thing remains the same – stealth PayPal accounts are regular accounts – they only have a different identity other than that of their owners.
Why Do You Need a Stealth PayPal Account?
There are a good number of reasons why you would need to create and use stealth PayPal accounts. Some good and some can cross the line of illegality, as in the case of using stealth accounts to scam and defraud other users.
In this article, our focus is on the Internet marketer with no illegal or fraudulent mindset to scam other unsuspecting Internet users. The below are some of the reasons why you would need to make use of a stealth PayPal account.
Blocked or Restricted PayPal Account
It is public knowledge that PayPal is quick to block or restrict an account without considering the effect such would have on the business of the merchant. If this happens to you, creating a new account is a waste of time as the new account would get blocked or restricted in no time too.
PayPal does not only use your identity and email address to track you; your browser is also being used. Since you would not be able to create regular accounts, creating an undetectable stealth account is the way to go.
PayPal is not available in all countries of the world. It might interest you to know that PayPal offers its full service in less than 30 countries in the world. In the remaining countries, it is either it is not available, or you are restricted to only sending money but not receiving.
A good number of these countries are in Asia and Africa and do not have a better alternative to PayPal. For you to create an account from an unsupported region, it will have to be stealth without using your location.
Having Alternative PayPal Accounts
The last group of users that would have the need for stealth PayPal accounts are user users that would need to create alternative accounts as a backup and would not want the accounts linked.
If you are a business, you would need to have a backup account to use in case your main account gets restricted or limited by PayPal. This account would carry information that is different from the one in your real account. They could be faked or for someone that is around you, but you are in control of the account.
How to Create PayPal Stealth Accounts
PayPal invests enough technology into preventing the creation of alternative and stealth accounts. You need to be stealthy in your approach to be able to create an account that would not get flagged and restricted. The secret behind creating stealth PayPal accounts is keeping them as unique as possible – any footprint discovered, and you have gotten your new accounts banned.
In general, there are 3 categories of details that have to be unique to avoid getting your account detected – personal information, browser environment, and IP address. If you are able to keep each of these unique, then having a long-lasting stealth account is possible. Let take a look at the steps required in other to create a stealth PayPal.
Step 1: Create New Personal Information
You need to get it right from this section else – all you need to do is wait, sit back, and watch how your new account would be suspended. You will need to use different personal information other than the one you have used previously. The idea is to make the account as unique as it can be. Let take a look at the major details you need to work on.
To create a stealth account, you will need to come up with a full name to use. If you have a previous account, it would be wise to avoid using your real name. There are a thousand names you can come up with. If you are finding it difficult to come up with a name to use, you can use a fake persona generator that will provide you details of a user that does not exist, including his name, location, birthday, browser, details, and a lot more.
As a recommendation, I will advise you to make use of FakeNameGenerator – you can choose a persona from different locations across the globe.
Home Address and Email Address
For the home address, you can go ahead and use the recommended home address provided by FakeNameGenerator above. It is advisable you save details generated by the FakeNameGenerator in a CSV file that you can easily access.
For the email address, you can choose to create the email access with variants of the full name with your email service of choice. You can use Gmail or any other but make sure Web Beacon is disabled.
This is where it gets interesting. If you are not in the United States, how would you get a US phone number to use for PayPal that you can use for verification? It turns out that there are phone number providers that will provide you phone numbers to use at a low price, and you can keep the number for as long as you pay for them.
Our recommended provider in this article is Dingtone. You can download it on Android here and iOS here. You should keep the app installed as you will need it for verification anytime PayPal requires that. There are also other phone number providers you can use. It is best if you can get a phone number from the same area as the home address you would use.
Step 2: Prepare a New Browser Environment
You will need a new browser environment if you have used PayPal in the past. This is because PayPal uses browser cookies and fingerprinting to track users, and as such, your browser might already have a unique fingerprint. For newbies, installing a new browser will take care of that.
Experienced users can go ahead and delete cookies and flash objects. The goal is to have a new browser environment that has been adulterated by past PayPal activities – previous histories could be used to link your new account with an old one, and you would not want that to happen.
If you intend to create and manage multiple stealth accounts, then it is advisable you invest in software like Multilogin, Vmlogin, AdsPower, and Kameleo that will provide you multiple browser profiles with each having a unique browser environment – you will have separate cookies, flash-object, canvas, local storage, and many more.

Step 3: Change Your Device IP Address
PayPal uses IP addresses to track users since each user has a unique IP address assigned to his computer at any given time. If two accounts have the same IP footprint, there is a high chance that they are being managed from the same device and, thus, owned by the same individual – you will need to use an IP address you have not used before.
Also important is the fact that IP addresses have locational information attached to them, which means except you change your IP address, you cannot create a full account from an unsupported region.
To change your IP address, one of the easiest methods is to make use of a proxy server. A proxy server would spoof your real IP address with a different IP address, making it difficult for web services to see your real IP address. For PayPal, it is advisable you stick to mobile proxies or residential proxies.
- For mobile proxies, you can get high-quality mobile proxies from Proxyguys, Bright Data, and Soax.
- For residential proxies, you can buy them from Luminati’s static residential IP, Shifter, and Smartproxy.
It is important you make sure that the IP address you use should be from the same location you claim to live in.
Step 4: Go Ahead and Create and Create the PayPal Account
With all of the requirements in place (new contact details, new browser environment, and IP address), the next step is to register an account on PayPal. Head over to the PayPal website using the new browser you set up above.
Before doing that, make sure you have proxies configured. Make sure you stick to the details you came up with above. When you are done creating an account, you will be required to verify your phone number and email address.
For the mobile number verification, you will need to use Dingtone for the verification. At some points, you will need to verify your PayPal account using documents to remove limits. You can make use of the service of document providers on Black Hat Forum like that of secondeye.
How to Withdraw Money from a Stealth PayPal Account
The stealth account you create can be used to receive and send money within the PayPal platform. But what if you want to withdraw the money into your bank account?
Because you used fake details, you won’t be able to link it to your account – and do not even contemplate opening a stealth bank account, too – you will be in trouble in no time. There are two options available to you.
Send to Someone Else to Help You Withdraw
If you have someone that has a regular account, you can send the money into his own PayPal and have him send you the money into your own bank account. If you do not, you could get the service of reputable buyers of PayPal funds on the BlackHatWorld Internet forum. I use the word reputable for a reason – some sellers are not sellers but scammers.
Use a Freelance Service
If the above won’t work for you or you are scared you will lose your money to scammers; you can use the service of a freelance website. You can either use Upwork or Fiverr. You will need to create two accounts – buyer (client) and seller (freelancer) accounts.
Make sure they are not created on the same date and use proxies so they will not have the same IP address. You will hire yourself and pay yourself. However, you need to know that you will lose some of the money as the fee for the platform. It is important you do not do this straight away – you need to create conversion and make it look real. Freelance platforms are used for money laundering, and as such, they are on guard!
How to Protect Your Stealth PayPal Account
It is one thing to create a stealth account; it is another to protect the account – without protecting it, it will be discovered as a stealth account and blocked. One thing you need to know is that if you have one stealth PayPal account, it is easier to manage than having multiple accounts.
For a single account, all you need to do is make sure you do not log into your former account on the same computer – keep IP address separate, and you are good to go. For multiple accounts, it is a little bit tricky. You will have to maintain the browser environment and proxy for each of the accounts and make sure you do not mistakenly use one for the other.
