Venmo Privacy Lockout: How to Hide Your Friends List and Keep Your Transactions Hidden (Yes, Seriously!)

Venmo logo
Have you ever split a bill with friends on Venmo and then cringe at the thought of everyone seeing your entire social network?   

Believe it or not, your Venmo friends list (and even past transactions!) are public by default.  

Here's a Cool Tip.  Tighten down the Venmo privacy settings!

Venmo is a mobile payment app that lets you easily send and receive money from friends and family. 

It's like a digital wallet that makes settling up for shared expenses, paying roommates rent, or splitting dinner bills with friends a breeze.

But you need to change a default setting to make it more secure.

Here's how.
  • Open the Venmo app and tap the "Me" tab.
  • Click the gear icon in the top right corner to access Settings.
  • Tap "Privacy" and then "Friends List."
  • Choose "Private" to hide your list from everyone except yourself.
  • Bonus: 
    • Toggle "Appear in other users' friends lists" off to disappear from their lists entirely. (Ninja mode activated!)

Venmo Privacy

For maximum privacy, set your "Default Transaction Privacy" to "Private" under the Privacy settings. 

This keeps all future transactions hidden unless you choose otherwise.

In just a few simple steps, you can turn your Venmo account from a public spectacle to a privacy fortress. 

Remember, it's your money and your social circle – keep them both under your own lock and key. 

With these Cool Tips in your arsenal, feel free to split those bills and send those payments with newfound confidence, knowing your financial world is a closed book to anyone but you. 

Now go forth and conquer those awkward money moments with grace and a sprinkle of digital ninja moves!
