Cash App is a mobile payment method released in 2013 by Block, Inc. It is a speedy and convenient way to make payments or send money to friends and family.
Cash App is available in the UK and America in English or French (although Spanish would be more useful). You can transfer money immediately for a fee, but sometimes, people may not be who they seem in your Cash App feed, so it’s essential to know how to block someone if necessary.
Look at this step-by-step guide to blocking any pesky no-gooders on your feed.
If you want to block someone from sending payments or requests to you on Cash App, you can do the following…..
- Tap the Activity tab on your home screen and select the account or person you want to block.
- Scroll down their profile page until you see ‘block’ at the bottom.
- Tap that button – assuming it isn’t already green, indicating they are blocked – and confirm that you want to proceed with the action.
- To unblock them later, follow the same steps and select unblock instead.
How to cancel your payments on Cash App – a step-by-step guide…
- Cash App to Cash App payments are usually instant, so it’s best to check your activity feed first. See if the payment receipt has a cancel option before you proceed, as this will allow you to stop that sneaky person from taking any of your hard-earned money.
- If not, then, unfortunately, you won’t be able to stop the payment once it is sent. When sending someone money on Cash App, make sure you know who they are and their details and do your research, don’t trust everyone – scammers do this job for a reason.
So there we have it – now you can quickly and easily block unwanted people clogging up your Cash App feed. And remember, always double-check those payment receipts for a cancellation option before hitting send.
