If you’ve been using Venmo for a while, you probably know about its social networking features. You might also know that it makes a certain circle of people aware of some or all of your transactions. Most likely, you’ve wondered how to delete your Venmo transaction history if you’re concerned about privacy.
Can I delete transactions from Venmo?
Past transactions cannot be deleted or cleared, but they can be made private. You won’t be able to hide your Venmo transactions or who you’ve paid or received money from even if you delete your account.
You can instantly hide your past transactions from other Venmo users by making your past transactions private. You and the person with whom you exchanged money will be the only ones to see your past transactions after you make them private.
Hide All Past/Future Transactions
- In the Venmo app, tap your profile photo.
On the screen, you can find it in the bottom-right corner. The process for making your entire transaction history private is incredibly easy.
- Click the gear icon.
In your profile, it’s in the upper-right corner.
- Click on Privacy.
On the menu, this option is near the middle.
- Click on Past Transactions.
Toward the bottom of the menu, you’ll find this under “More.”.
- Change All to Private by tapping it.
You’ll find it at the end of the screen. You will receive a confirmation message.
- Make sure all are set to private by tapping Change All.
After you make your previous transactions private, only you and the recipient or sender can see your previous transactions.
Can I delete my transaction history by blocking the other user?
Users have reported that blocking a user will delete the transaction associated with that user. We found that this does not work. Below are the steps you can take if you’d like to try it:
1. Visit the profiles of your friends on Venmo.
2. In the upper right corner, tap the three dots.
3. Block the tap.
Unblocking the user can be done in the same way. I hope your transaction disappears, but if it doesn’t, you can make your transactions private by following the steps above.
You will only be able to access your Venmo history in the future. It is a pretty alternative to Venmo since it does not allow users to delete their transaction history. Due to banking laws, we are unable to delete transaction history in Venmo until an official update becomes available.
