TikToker shares simple hack to help avoid Venmo scams

A TikTok user is warning others after allegedly losing $7,000 on Venmo. In her video, Anna Grace Newell, advised others to take steps that could help them avoid getting “scammed”. Her advice? Add a pin code to your Venmo account, just in case someone is able to access your account. The process can be done in a few seconds, by clicking on the “Settings” tab of the app’s menu. From there, scroll down to “Security” and select “Face ID & PIN” . TikTok users were largely thankful for Newell’s hack, with many saying they were following her advice immediately
