Why the h3!! is the default on this app make all your financial transactions viewable to practically anyone and their dog!!! Spent a bunch of time trying to resolve this, and Venmo customer support was worthless. I don't want anyone seeing my financial transactions except the person with whom I did that specific transaction. Don't sign up if you value privacy and personal liberties!!!
Pretty smooth. My preferred way to pay friends simply because it seems to be what is widely used by millennials. Annoying you can't turn off email notifications of payments. I haven't really had this problem, but friends complain of holds and having to do verifications sometimes.
You MUST read: This is BS. By default it scrapes every possible "contact" in your life (not only Facebook but also every phone # off your phone, PLUS everyone who had your number on their phone) and makes them your "friends." (yes that girl who took your number that one night who doesn't even know your last name is now your "friend" if she has a Venmo account and she now has your name and she knows everyone in your life including viewing your transactions for rent, vacations, Uber, and weed) But that's not the worst. Now all of your "friends" can view a list of all of your "friends" and that's not even the worst. You cannot view your OWN friends list so you can't even know what "friends" you are publicly displaying to anyone who searches your name. Essentially at this point you are publicly displaying your entire phone list and every contact ever in your life. Even worse you cannot "unsync" the contacts it scraped from your phone and Facebook. It's owned by PayPal in case you wonder why it's so awful.
You've locled my bank account into a past account that I had to close because you wouldn't block a crazy stalker from constantly harassing me. There is more to service than just one singular task. You're a financial app. You have a responsibility to allow users a sage and SECURE experience.
Very good in general. Venmo should warn users that transactions with strangers could go through on the app but might fail irl if there are insufficient funds.
App will not work. Keeps telling me something went wrong when I go to the card and Bank tab. And will not load it at all. I can't even add my card because of it. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling it several times and still won't work. Actually got worse and does the same thing while logging in now
