Venmo’s Defaults

Venmo’s default settings are very uncomfortable. I’ve never used this payment service by PayPal before and, by default, I am friends with all of my phone’s contacts—I opted out of linking to Facebook—and I would automatically make public anytime I exchanged money. Not only to my “friends”, but totally public.

I shouldn’t know that someone I worked with 20 years ago gave someone else money to fix their hot water heater.

  1. I make my payments private every time.
