What information does Venmo share with partners?

Venmo does not share your payment information with partners. When you connect your Venmo account to a partner and authorize a purchase, a random payment identifier is generated and provided to the partner with your username. The partner uses that identifier as a way to charge your account. Your bank or card information is not shared directly with partners, and you can disconnect your Venmo account from a partner's app at any time. To learn more about how Venmo uses your personal information, please review our privacy policy.
