Key Points:

  • If you want to delete your Venmo account, you will need to make sure you have the app downloaded and that you’re logged in.

Venmo, Cash App, and Zelle are all useful apps that allow us to instantly send money to people via the Internet. Whether you feel like it’s a security issue or you just don’t want to have an account anymore, each service has a way to delete your account permanently. This is different than just deleting the app, and is a permanent option that can’t be reversed. Here are the 4 easy steps to delete your Venmo account permanently. Let’s get started!

The 4 Easy Steps to Delete Your Account

Deleting your Venmo account is incredibly easy. If you want to do so, you will need to make sure you have the app downloaded and that you’re logged in. Once you’ve done that, you can follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Tap the “Me” Button

Tap the “Me” button in the bottom right corner.

Once you have opened the app and logged in, you should be on the “Home” tab automatically. From here, you are going to want to go to the bottom right of the screen and tap the button labeled “Me.” This is essentially your Profile tab and opens up all your personal settings and information. The button will have one of two things on it: your initials or a photo. If you’ve added your photo, it will be present, otherwise, it will display your initials.

Step 2: Tap the Settings Icon

Tap the settings icon in the top right corner.

Once you’ve clicked on your profile, you should see a different screen. From here, you will want to go to the settings menu. This can be found at the top right of the screen and is a button in the shape of a small gear icon. Go ahead and tap the icon.

Step 3: Select the Account Option

Select the Account menu from the settings menu.

Once you’ve tapped the settings icon, a new screen should appear with a lot of text. These are all the possible settings you can edit for your account. From here, you are going to tap the option labeled “Account.” This should be the first option listed, directly under the Preferences tab.

Step 4: Close Your Venmo Account

Select the option to close your Venmo account. Follow any prompts.

Once you’ve tapped the Account button, you should now have three options in front of you: Profile, Phone Number, and Close Venmo Account. The Close Venmo Account should be listed last, directly under the Account Control tab. Once you’ve tapped this, you may need to follow a few prompts in order to officially close the account.

Once you are done with the prompts, you will no longer have a Venmo account! To see these steps in action check out the video below.

Closing Your Account on a Web Browser

Closing Your Business Profile

If you have a business profile, things are a bit more complicated. Users can’t close their account from the app, and will instead have to call Venmo customer service in order to close it officially.
