Enable push notifications on your Venmo account

If you enable push notifications on your Venmo account, you will be notified whenever there is a transaction. If this is in place, you will be alerted immediately when there is fraudulent activity on your account — even if Venmo doesn’t recognize it as fraud — and you can resolve it right away. To enable push notifications on Venmo:

  • Go to Settings > Alerts and Notifications > Push.
  • Customize push notification settings.
