Do you use money-sharing apps like Venmo, CashApp, or Zelle? Beware of hackers, experts say. Digital thieves have been finding ways to hack into money-sharing apps like these, sometimes swiping thousands of dollars from unsuspecting customers.
So how can you protect your money? Experts recommend creating a separate bank account for the apps, with only enough money for your digital transactions. And make sure you know which apps you’re using – some bank customers say they were signed up for Zelle without their knowledge.
