Send dollars, not financial details

Every transaction in our app is encrypted, so your financial information stays secure whether you’re paying a friend or checking out online. Connect your account to your favorite apps or online shops, and you won’t even have to type in card numbers to make a purchase. Just tap to pay with Venmo, and we’ll send the payment without sharing your account details.

Security is built into the app

Secure your sign-in

Ensure that you’re the only one who can access the app – even if you lose your phone. In addition to the standard Venmo password, you can create a biometric or PIN-based passcode for your Venmo account.

Control your payment privacy

Maybe you want people to see your perfect payment notes. Maybe not. Either way, our privacy settings let you control who sees your activity in the app.

Send to the right Venmo friends

Paying someone new? We’ll ask you to verify their phone number. Sending to a work friend? You can sync your contacts to add them as a Venmo friend and be sure you’re paying the right person.

We help protect eligible purchases

When you pay for a service or buy merchandise, tap the toggle in the app to indicate you’re making a purchase. Eligible transactions are protected with Purchase Protection benefits.*

We verify users’ identities

In accordance with federal law, we ask all users to confirm their identity in the app, where details can remain encrypted. This helps Venmo verify our users’ accounts and is designed to stop scams before they happen.
