How to update your Venmo profile information on desktop or mobile

ShutterstockThere are two ways to update your Venmo profile.

Venmo is a peer-to-peer money transfer app that allows you to give, request, and receive money from other people without having to exchange cash or even meet up in person.

In order to help people find you on Venmo, though, you have to be sure that your profile information is accurate. That way, people know it’s really you that they’re sending money to – after all, with 40 million active users, you’re more than likely not the only person on the app with your name.
