Sharing transactions with your friends on Venmo might seem a bit weird but probably harmless, right? Nope. It’s time to turn that setting off immediately.
With shared Venmo payments:
Fortunately, with some digging in the settings on desktop, you can turn this feature off, either for individual payments or—ideally—for all of them.
Privacy Party can automate this process, or you can make it happen manually instead.
To hide a single Venmo payment that you have already made, you'll first need to log into Venmo on mobile and head over to your profile by tapping on "Me".
Note that once you've made a transaction private, you cannot make it public again.
If you haven't yet made a payment and would like to keep it private, you can do so from the transaction page before you pay:
Your transaction will be private! But why not update your. defaults so you can hide all your payments?
You'll first need to log into Venmo and head over to settings.
1. Visit https://account.venmo.com/settings/privacy.
2. Under "Future Payments," select "Private".
3. Under "Past Payments," select "Change to Private".
