We can all agree that the digital payment revolution is currently in full swing. The emergence of mobile payment apps can also be considered a factor that has altered how this revolution is perceived. We can say that the pandemic of 2020 had a critical role to play in going contactless. It also drove individuals to switch to contactless technology when it came to payment methods.
There are many digital mobile payment apps accessible right now, and Venmo is undoubtedly one of them. Actually, Venmo started off as a cashless peer-to-peer payment system. It was made available on both Android and iPhone.
Moreover, using Venmo doesn’t require much of you. You merely need to be a citizen of the United States and be at least 18 years old, with a bank account, of course. If you meet these requirements, the app will welcome you on board.
You are aware, though, that this is not your standard social networking app where you always converse with friends. Of course, we have inquiries about this app, and today we’ll tackle one of them.
We understand that many of you are curious whether you can check who viewed your Venmo profile. You should stick by us until the end to know the answers. So, what are you waiting for? Let us jump right in and go into the blog to know all we can.
Can You See Who Viewed Your Venmo Profile?
We can tell that you are in this area because you want to know you can see who has viewed your Venmo profile. But we regret to inform you of the bad news.
The problem is that Venmo does not currently have a feature that enables you to see who has viewed your profile. So, you won’t receive a notification if someone visits your profile at any moment to view it.
There is one thing to consider: you will not have to worry about checking their profile as well. You can look at someone else’s profile without worrying that they will find out.
We also regret to inform you that there hasn’t been any news—at least not yet—on the rollout of this specific functionality. Hey, but that’s not all. We must inform you that you have an opportunity to find out who has viewed your profile or activity. You can figure out if they have interacted with your transaction.
The one definite way to know someone has viewed your profile is when they ask you for money or send it to you. Additionally, if they like or respond to the transaction, you will undoubtedly be informed of it.
But don’t worry if you still have options if you don’t like the limited possibilities. Well, Venmo allows you to decide who may view your purchases and transactions.
So, you can always keep your transactions private if you don’t feel comfortable disclosing them to others. You can, therefore, at least feel that this app respects your right to privacy n this respect at the very least.
Please note that your payments and transactions can either be made public, private, or only visible to your friends. You should be aware that your app payments are publicly viewable by default if you have no idea what we’re talking about. Naturally, going being with this setting means anyone on the app can view it.
But not all of us are comfortable with this setting, right? You may choose from other, more private options on the app, so don’t worry. However, if you set it to Friends only, only your app buddies will be able to see it. And, if you choose the private option, only you and the other party involved in the transaction will be able to see it.
How to update the privacy settings of Venmo
The three privacy setting options—Public, Friends, and Private—were covered in the previous section. We are pleased to assist you if you want to alter your privacy settings to these options but are unsure of where to start. Let’s take you down the steps so you can learn all about it below.
Steps to update privacy settings of Venmo:
Step 1: To begin, you need to open Venmo on your smartphone.
Step 2: Do you see the three horizontal lines or hamburger icon located at the top of the home screen? Please tap on it to open the menu.
Step 3: You must select settings in the next step.
Step 4: Hit the privacy settings option next.
You will see the three options in privacy settings.
Depending on your choice, select Friends or Private, and save the setting. Please be aware that you have the option to set all past transaction settings to private as well. Scroll down below and make the necessary updates.
In the end
Let us review everything we learned today as we come to the conclusion of this blog. We were discussing whether we could see who has viewed our Venmo profile.
We reasoned that we could not really know who has viewed your profile until someone pays you or requests payment. However, we showed you how to limit who can see your app transaction activity.
We anticipate a quick update on this feature and will be the first to inform you of it. Check out our website for more of these interesting questions and answers to learn more.
