I had an issue with the sendwave app where it would not allow access beyond the login page. The app would not recognize the three digit security code on the back of my card. Multiple attempts to uninstall and re-install the app did not work either. The good news: I called customer service and they reset my card info which required a re-entry of my info. The app worked immediately after and all this took just a couple of minutes. Lesson learnt, if one solution doesn't work, explore alternatives! I feel like a dummy , I should have called customer service months ago. Thumbs up CS.

Chime Inc, us sending the problem to the email u left in your response will not help. The problem is general, so are u waiting to recieve each user's email? Just work on the general problem that we're all facing. The app freezes and doesn't respond for almost 30 seconds. You enter a number or letter and it takes 30 seconds for it to appear in the selected box. It's very frustrating. That's the problem right now and it has been a problem since towards the end of 2020.

Their rate is great. I like the fact that I can send money from the comfort of my home. In my opinion the app doesn't have privacy. They should give users the option of accessing the app only through a password. They do request a password when you want to complete a financial transaction but that is not enough. Anyone that clicks on your app can see all your transactions at first glance. That is not safe.
