1
To link your financial accounts to an app like Venmo, simply provide the username and password associated with those financial accounts.

2
Once we’ve verified your ownership of your accounts, we retrieve your account information from your financial institution.

3
We then securely process and share your information with the app you’re using and establish a secure connection that you control.
