What is this?
Venmo QR codes make it easier to find, add, and pay friends on Venmo! Just open the scanner in the Venmo app and center the camera over the "Venmo Me" QR code you want to scan. No need to tap! After you scan a friend’s code, you’ll be taken directly to their profile page. There, you can add them as a friend, send, or request funds. When you are viewing your "Venmo Me" QR code you can also share it with a friend through email, text messages, and more.

How can I share my personal QR code?
When you open the scanner and tap “Venmo Me,” you’ll see your personal QR code next to your profile picture. Here you’ll also have options to share your personal QR code via text message, email, printing, and more.
