Venmo heard you like stories, so it added stories to its app to give you more stories

Venmo heard you like stories, so it added stories to its app to give you more stories

In case you haven't heard, everyone likes stories now. Sure, maybe you don't, but judging by how many apps now carry them as a feature, you're on your own. Everyone from Spotify to Pinterest to Twitter has shown interest in stories in the last few months, to say nothing of old standbys like Snapchat and Instagram. Venmo, the PayPal-owned payment platform that pulls double-duty as a mini social network, has decided to get in on the fun, but not really in the way you might expect.

Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, Cash app, and Google Pay compared: Which is the best money transfer service?

Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, Cash app, and Google Pay compared: Which is the best money transfer service?

Paying and getting paid is easier than ever, but the various apps you can choose to transact with have their upsides and downsides. Picking one can be difficult, and signing up for all of them even more so — especially when it often means convincing friends and family to do so as well. But old school bank ACH transfer tools are for the birds, and cold, hard cash remains a dicey proposition in the current environment. Splitting the bill with cash is also just a pain, and newer peer to peer (P2P) payment apps are so much more convenient that it's truly silly in 2020 not to be using one.

Venmo Adds Two-Factor Authentication To Its Mobile Apps And The Web

Mobile payments app Venmo has been around for years now, but without two-factor authentication, security hasn't been as good as it could be. Fortunately the company is now getting around to changing that. Today it announced that it has added two-factor authentication to its mobile apps (Android and iOS) as well as the web.

When you attempt to sign into Venmo from a new phone, the service will send you a 6-digit code that you will need in order to get inside.

Venmo 5.0 Introduces New Holo-Friendly Look, More Responsive News Feed, Home Screen Widget, Better Notifications, And More

One of PayPal's problems is that it's immensely popular. As the service implements more features and grows to support a larger user base, it inevitably loses some people along the way. If you want an app that makes it easy to send money to friends that isn't PayPal, Venmo is worth a look. It's simple, doesn't charge to send money from most bank accounts or debit cards, and it just received an update that makes the experience look more at home on Android.
