What's New in Version 7.9.0
November is packed with the awesome stuff to keep you cozy and safe—pumpkin-spiced lattes and two-factor authentication. Venmo also got its flu-shot, so there are now even less bugs floating around.
Pretty great, but needs some fine-tuning…
Overall, Venmo has made my life way easier. From paying babysitters, to quickly re-imbursing friends for things… Venmo is a fantastic app. I still can’t believe it’s virtually free. Transfers to/from my bank account are amazingly fast. Withdrawals usually complete in under a day. No complaints there.
But, as a small question to the dev team, I’d simply like to ask - would it be too hard to enable landscape mode on the iPad and the iPhone 7 Plus / 8 Plus? Those of us with these devices often use them in landscape mode (for example, when hooked to a keyboard), and so I’m puzzled by the fact that such a simple layout fix still isn’t implemented on this app.
That’s a pretty minor complaint, I know. But nonetheless I do hope it gets fixed soon!
This app is incredibly intrusive. It back-doors you into letting it view your contacts, then, without notice, it automatically “friends” EVERYONE in your contact list who is Venmo, sharing all your transactions as a default. You have to opt-out of having private transactions shared with everyone on your phone. The process to “un-friend” everyone is difficult and time consuming. Syncing the app to your bank account is more difficult than most similar apps (Mint, PayPal, etc.). Once set up, the transactions are quick as easy. I have yet to be paid using Venmo, so I don’t know how easy or difficult it is to get the money from Venmo to your account. Overall, I am very surprised that this has become a popular money sharing app. PayPal is extensively better and gives me more confidence that my money/bank accounts are protected.
Beware of fraud
Completely disgusting invasion of privacy that tricks millennials and teens into thinking it’s cool to publicly disclose their financial transactions to the entire world unknowingly with exciting emojis and other gimmicks. Need US Congress to pass privacy laws that MANDATE companies to keep transactions private and confidential unless consumers explicitly opt-in, instead of the other way around. As a 25-year IT security veteran please warn everyone who uses this app that they should enable every privacy setting available and limit settings to a single bank account that is monitored closely. Otherwise It is way too easy for hackers to gain all the socially engineering information needed to easily hack accounts. In the meantime, I’m working with the FTC and other agencies to stop Venmo from these practices and I see some major class action lawsuits brewing if Venmo doesn’t wake up and change their privacy settings fast.
