> PayPal will offer affected TIO consumers free credit-monitoring
services through Experian Plc, the spokesman said.What's the point
anymore? This has happened so many times this year I've got more
credit monitoring than I could ever need. Now I just need them to
actually redo the "identity" system into something I can actually
use with peace of mind.

There was never an actual point. It was the only plausible-
sounding thing that could be given and neither regular folks nor
industry journalists called them out.

> PayPal hasn't integrated TIO with its platform, so PayPal users
aren't affected by the security vulnerabilities at TIO.Most
relevant line considering the title. PayPal wasn?t compromised.
