If you've created a business profile on Venmo, learn how to set up profile PINs and limit access to your personal or business profile.
Note: This feature is currently supported for Android devices only and will soon be available for iOS.
With PIN authentication, you can create a secondary PIN to help limit who has access to your personal and business profiles once your Venmo app is open.
Creating a PIN for your profiles can help keep your information private, especially if you have trusted employees who may need to use your device and access your business profile in-person. For example, with a PIN enabled for your personal profile, you can have some peace of mind while your team collects payments at your next event.
You can also create a PIN to be used whenever Venmo is opened on your device. Learn more about setting up a PIN/Face ID for your Venmo app.
How it works
You can choose to enable a unique PIN for each of your profiles in the Venmo app. The PIN you create will then be required anytime you switch to the profile for which the PIN is enabled. If you have Face ID or a similar biometric passcode for your device, this will be used first. If Face ID fails, you’ll be prompted to enter the PIN for the profile you’re trying to access.
When you re-open Venmo after leaving the app, you’ll be brought back to the profile you accessed most recently. If you’ve enabled a PIN for that profile, you’ll be asked to enter it before you can proceed. You’ll also be able to toggle to your other profile instead if needed.
How to update your PIN
From the Settings menu on your personal profile, look for the “PIN” option. Here, you can toggle this feature on or off for each of your profiles. To update or reset your PIN, simply navigate back to this screen to toggle the feature off and back on. If you forget your PIN, you'll need to uninstall and reinstall Venmo on your device.
