How to Delete Your Venmo Account on Mac or PC

Cancel that account and keep your financial information safe

Venmo offers the convenience of transferring money between family and friends from your smartphone or computer, allowing for instant transactions when you're sitting at the same table or on opposite sides of the country. At some point, you may want to delete your account. We show you how to do it.

Any funds in your account must be transferred to your bank account or returned to senders before you can close your Venmo account. Opting to close your account won't initiate these transfers.
