Cash App is a mobile payment service, headquartered in San Francisco. This service has become one of the most popular peer-to-peer money transferring apps since its launch. It allows users to transfer money and accept payments through their phones and this information and these transfers could be seen on your public profile that can be viewed by other users too. You will have to create a square cash account first which you can easily do from their website squarecash.com.
In addition, if you want to delete any trace of your activity, you should read this guide till the end as it tells how you can remove the history from square cash completely. We don’t recommend doing so unless necessary as it would be better to have the history if you want to pay or receive payments. This way, you can easily see who has sent you money, when it was done and how much was transferred in case there are any problems in the future.

- The app also supports sending cash internationally which makes it an even better solution since users don’t have to worry about fees that are associated with international transfers made through other agents.
- You will get notifications once your receiver accepts or denies payment which means that this way of transferring cash ensures protection.
- Another reason why people choose this app is that they have access to their cash in just a couple of minutes after the transfer.
How to Delete Cash App History?
- To remove your square cash history you will need to turn off sync on your phone. This way, you won’t see the activity from other devices connected to the same account.

Can Cashapp be Traced?
No. The IRS is unable to trace cash app payments unless the Cash App provides them with information.
If Law Enforcement has a search warrant of your phone or computer based on probable cause that you have committed illegal activity, they can get access to the information stored within the Cash app. That is why it would be better to delete Square Cash payment history before deleting the account itself in order to avoid sharing any private data with third parties.
