BuzzFeed News reports its discovery of privacy flaws on Venmo while searching for U.S. President Joe Biden's transaction history. BuzzFeed was able to track down Biden's account through other family's and friends' contact lists. Following the reveal, accounts for Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were deleted. The payment application said user privacy "is always a top priority" and that it is "consistently evolving and strengthening the privacy measures for all Venmo users" with the aim of "a safe, secure place to send and spend money."
