Mobile App: Issues and Solutions

Find out how to troubleshoot issues that you encounter on your Paxful App such as fingerprint, sign-in, ID verification, and more.
What Are the Steps for Basic Troubleshooting?
This is a solution for the majority of possible issues related to the Paxful app:
  • Restart your app.
  • Make sure you are connected to the internet (do a speed test to confirm). 
  • Make sure the app is of the latest version. Please open the app in the Google Play Store or in the App Store and download the updates if any.
How to Set Up a Fingerprint?
Fingerprint can be enabled on the Account tab in the Security section:
  • iOS fingerprint option should be enabled on a device first. If fingerprint recognition fails more than 3 times - a pin will be required.
  • Android devices should support the fingerprint option and it should be activated in device settings. As standard, there is no limit for attempts. If the fingerprint scan is not working, just close the window and use a pin instead.
How to Solve the Sign-in Issue?
Sign in issues:
  • There is an option on each password field to show the password. Please check if you are entering the right password.
  • Some issues might be because you use an old version of the app. System forces time to update to the latest versions, but still no 100% hit. Please open the app in the Google Play Store or in the Appstore and download the latest version.
  • Antibot-solutions that we use might block users if some suspicious activity was detected on the device, network, region, etc. In case if you have tried all previous steps, please contact us to investigate your specific case.
