Creating a second Venmo account is easy and free. This article will go over how to create a second Venmo account, make a few purchases with your newly created Venmo account, then go through the process of reversing the transactions so they show up in your main Venmo balance.
When it comes to money, most people fear the unknown. And that’s what makes Venmo such a useful tool. It’s easy to use and has tons of built-in security measures to keep your information safe.
But what if you could make your Venmo account even more secure by creating another one? This is not as scary as it sounds and can be very beneficial in helping you take money out of your checking account when your Venmo balance is in full. The best part is that you can do this easily, in just three simple steps!
Steps To Make A Second Venmo Account
Creating a second Venmo account is pretty simple. If you’ve ever switched from a Venmo account to a debit or credit card, then you already have a second account. If not, creating one is still incredibly easy.
TIP: If you want two accounts for yourself, it’s probably easier to create a new Venmo user name instead of trying to switch between your current one and the dummy account you’re creating.
1. Log in to your existing Venmo account and select “Settings” from the menu at the top of the page.
2. Click on the button located at the bottom of the page that says “Create New Account.”
3. When prompted, fill out all required information and click on “Continue.”
4. Confirm your information by clicking on “Confirm.”
5. You’ll now be logged into your new account and the card linked to this Venmo account will be removed from your wallet. Any money in your wallet will remain there, but will no longer be connected to an active card.
Tips & Warnings:
Over time, Venmo removes transactions that are older than 90 days and payments made to businesses or groups. However, you can view all of your past transactions by logging in at https://venmo.com/transactions.
Treat your Venmo account like you would any other account with sensitive personal information, like a credit card or bank account. Be careful about sharing your login information with others.
If you need help with a Venmo transaction or believe it was used fraudulently, there are a couple of things you can do:
Step 1) Report the unauthorized transaction by contacting customer service through the in-app “Help” tab or by calling the customer support number on the back of your card (1-855-856-0158). 💳 💲
Step 2) Depending on the circumstances, you may be asked to confirm your identity before Venmo is able to investigate and resolve the issue. If so, please contact customer service with a photo of an ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.), a photo of yourself holding the ID, and a short description of what happened (date and time of transaction, amount involved).
