Venmo has removed the public feed feature, which allowed people across the globe to see user payments.
In Venmo's statement, they said, "As part of our ongoing efforts to continually evolve the Venmo platform, while staying true to the heart of the Venmo experience, we are removing the global feed. This change allows customers to connect and share meaningful moments and experiences with the people who matter most."
Many users did not like the fact that complete strangers could see what payments were being issued.
Users can still see activity amongst their friend groups only if permission is granted.
