While this service can come in very handy, at some point you may want to delete your account for one reason or another. If you have any funds they must be transferred to your bank account or returned to sender before you'll be allowed to close your Venmo account. Simply opting to close your account will not automatically initiate these transfers. Follow the instructions below if you no longer wish to maintain an active Venmo account. Venmo accounts can only be canceled from a laptop or desktop computer, not from a smartphone or tablet (not even from a mobile web browser). How to Cancel Your Venmo Account Navigate to the Venmo home page in any major web browser, via the following URL: https://venmo.com/ Click on the Sign In link, located in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Enter your Venmo credentials and click on the Sign In button. If prompted, click on the Send Code button and enter the six-digit passcode that should have been sent to your smartphone. Your recent transactions should now be displayed, along with the rest of the main Venmo interface. Click on Settings, located in the upper right-hand corner. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Close my Venmo Account link. A message will now appear, stating that you'll need to review and download your most recent statement before closing your account. Click on the Next button. Your most recent Venmo statement will now be provided. Click Next. A warning will now appear, asking you if you're sure that you want to close your Venmo account. Click on the Close Account button to complete the process, or on Cancel to exit if you've changed your mind.
