To help keep your Venmo account safe, you can create a PIN as another layer of security in your Venmo app. Once you enable this feature, the Venmo app will ask for your PIN every time the app is opened on your device. You may also be asked to confirm your PIN when sending payments to other Venmo users.
How can I set up a PIN for my Venmo app?
To set up a PIN and/or use biometrics like Face ID to access your Venmo account, follow these steps in your Venmo app:
- Go to the Me tab by tapping your picture or initials
- Tap the Settings gear at the top of your screen
- Select Face ID & PIN (iOS) or PIN code & biometric unlock (Android)
- Look under the "Preferences" section of your Settings menu
- Tap the toggle to enable or disable the PIN feature
- Create and confirm your PIN
Please note that you must have Face ID, Touch ID, or Fingerprint enabled in your general device settings in order to use those features on Venmo.
If you have a business profile or charity profile, you may also have the option to create a PIN for each of your profiles in the Venmo app. Learn more about profile PINs here.
