Is Cash App Safe?

Recommended Pharmacies on Pharmacy Reviewer

So do I have this right?

1. Buy BTC on Cashapp
2. Transfer BTC to 3rd party wallet
3. From 3rd party wallet transfer to vendor’s wallet

Am I missing anything? What wallet(s) are people using/usually recommended?

I have used both Coinbase and Cash App for BTC purchases. WIth CB I had a middle wallet similar to what you listed in your post. With CashApp I have found I can go directly to vendors without the 3rd party wallet. CB closed my original account when I transferred to a vendor for a purchase. I am not giving advice on how you move the money around but IMO CashApp is more expensive but eliminates the need for a 3rd party wallet.
 
Cash App uses cutting-edge encryption and fraud detection technology to make sure your data and money are secure. But Although the app is legitimate, you should use it cautiously.
 
So what to use for crypto if you don't drive, don't have a passport and your bank needs a card reader to login, not a username and password?
Invest in either a state id or national id depending on where you reside.
 
My son in Georgia pays me for his cell phone bill monthly thru this app.Never had a problem receiving or cashing out to my bank account.I leave zero in the app as a personal habit.
 
There are a few well-known cash app scams. I would be careful I personally will not use cash app, unless I know the person.
 
I use cashapp for BTC purchases and I think it's the easiest app there is for BTC. Remember to send the BTC to another wallet--do not send to your merchant from cashapp. I hope that makes sense.
 
I like Cash App.. It is very easy to buy bitcoin and transfer to your wallet or do as you need. I like that fact you can always buy stocks. You can buy fractional shares of stocks as well which is cool.. Overall App is legit as you get a debit card as well
 
Cashapp is legit, I do some stuff with it. Just buy BC and transfer to your wallet.
 
I have used Cashapp for a while to buy BTC and never had a problem. I (as many on here have suggested) .. then transfer over to another wallet for the payments to merchants.

Now if you're the founder of Cashapp .. I guess today was a really bad day ..

I guess I shouldn't even joke about something like that ... but just kind of in that mood tonight.

It's just totally sad the environment that in San Francisco has gotten that bad. Have not been there in years, but used to love to go and always felt safe. Senseless violence anyway/anytime is just .. well senseless.
 
Can anyone explain the concept of a “middle wallet” ? I’m totally old school when it comes to finances/bill paying . Is Zelle like cash app or is it more like a direct bank transfer? I have a couple folks who will take a direct bank transfer and one that I send a physical check . I don’t know what’s safer ?
 
@Santa's little helper I just read tonight that Bob Lee had his wallet still on him so it makes me wonder if this wasn't a random robbery gone bad? He was 6 blocks away from his hotel so that seems odd too, based on that area. It def isn't a place to go on an after-dinner stroll. I betcha there is more to this story!

No matter, no judgement here, I was just relaying what I heard. He has kids who now are fatherless and that sucks a bag of dicks! I hate that his loved one are going through life now without their loved one. 🥺💜
 
@Slantedfloor Cashapp is like paypal but on your phone instead of a www its an app.

Thats pretty much it, I don't know what a middle wallet is never heard that term before.
 
I've used CashApp since it came out, years ago. And I use it all the time. Here are a few golden rules with CashApp.

1. Never buy anything that you may want a refund on. Their CS is non-existent and they do not help.
2. Never send money to someone you do not trust. There is no getting it back.
3. Never keep a lot on CashApp, because of how sketchy it is. If money is stolen, then you're out of luck.

That said, I use it everyday. I use it to send money to my nephew, I use their bank account and card to buy subscriptions from sketchy places that seem to not like to cancel those subscriptions (I'm looking at you, HotWorx Yogo). I have actually not purchased BTC off of it, but that is because I use Coinbase and use their $30 a month Pro membership where all BTC purchases are free... So if I buy, for example the other day, $1,500 in BTC, I got like $1,490 because of some high/low hidden BS Coinbase still has. But a lot better than other places. I use a wallet on my machine I send from Coinbase and then to vendor. I think with how sketchy CashApp is, that they wouldn't care.

Maybe I should look at the cost/analysis of CashApp BTC vs Coinbase...

But for all that is said, CashApp is sketchy as sketchy gets. But I find niche uses for it and love it for that. Just NEVER use it in a situation where a refund may be needed. Because you won't get it.

lately I’ve used it to make purchases on the web instead of using my bank card. More and more it seems smarter to use an alternative because it seems the hackers are way ahead of the security people trying to beat them. My bank offers a temporary card to use, but CashApp is so much easier. Definitely a good idea to use for sketchy sites.
 
@blecher59 Yea so I love CashApp and I also hate it with a passion. Because they just have no support or chargebacks or anything. Once the money is sent... That is the end of the story. Like.. Done. Poof. Bye bye.

But for the uses I want it for.... I love. Because sketchy places or just places I don't want my main cards on I use it with. And then also for family. CashApp is just one of those things that you have to know the rules on how to use it and when not to use it. Once you have that down its a great thing to have.
