Screenshotting Venmo or anything else depends on the device you will be using and not the app itself. There are some common ways to take a screenshot, but if none work for you, visit the device’s official website to find out how to take a screenshot.

There are more than 1,300 brands of Android manufacturers with more than 24,000 different android devices. Depending on the Android phone you own, you can Screenshot a Venmo app by pressing the Power button and Volume Down at the same time.

You can also protect yourself and make all past transactions private.
