There may be another reason they are scared. I had an epiphany on my way home about ApplePay. What if we are looking at this short sighted as only a way to make payments. If you look at Bluetooth LE and iBeacons, you realize that the iPhone is one as well. It can transmit and also receive. What if the same is true with ApplePay. Why couldn't the iPhone6 or Apple Watch also be a NFC Terminal and accept ApplePay Payments, or any NFC Payments at some point in the future? This would put NFC Terminals in a huge percentage of hands. It puts them Squarely in Square and Paypal's target zone. It also solves a problem that those companies have in 2015. How will they (Paypal, Square, etc) be able to allow their customers to accept payments on Mobile Devices in 2015 and meet the new guidelines?
And we all know PayPal has never had a security breach. ;-)
I also love their professional advertisement. Makes me really feel warm and fuzzy. /s
Time to cancel my PayPal accounts. Not that I have anything in them anyway.
I'll close them because, you know, security.
Attention Apple lovers. Today's enemy is Paypal. Go.
Holy s**t. Never would have guessed PayPal would be so damn scummy. I thought their worst was simply charging me the outrageously onerous fees for using their service.
How wrong I was.
I'll state it again, the only reason you hear iCloud is because it's widely known. The unathorised access to accounts however was widespread across all popular online services. The reason you're not hearing more about all of this from these companies is simple: this is still very much under investigation.
The fact that Paypal is worried has me more excited than ever for apple pay.

PayPal must be betting that people won't remember numerous breaches that caused unauthorized charges that drained their bank accounts.

This is already frightening.
That ad from PayPal suggests you get their app. What? The app found on Apple's iTunes app store?! Seems you trust Apple security there PayPal!
Grooooan... Know what that is PayPal? That's a 'selfie', but it's called a 'moanie' where one reacts after reading such tripe.
Why do you need it now?
