New Venmo privacy setting
Venmo is notoriously lax about the privacy of your transactions and for good reason: the service was built on social sharing of friends paying each other back for sushi and coffees.
But, ever since Buzzfeed was able to President Biden’s profile and his entire list of friends, the app has introduced a new setting to hide your friend list.
To turn it on, open the Venmo app, go into Settings, then Privacy and Your Friends List. Choose “Private” so other people can’t see your list of friends.
While you’re in Settings, you should make your exchanges private as well, except if you like everybody seeing who you’re trading cash with. I know, numerous individuals do. I simply don’t get it.

The component additionally went to Google’s Phone Dialer application, which is the default on Pixel telephones, yet anybody utilizing an Android can likewise download and utilize it free of charge. Open the Dialer application, go into Settings, at that point search for the choice for Caller ID declaration. Set to Always.
On iPhone, go into Settings, Phone and pick the alternative for Announce Calls.
