Do you use money sharing apps like Venmo, CashApp, or Zelle? Beware of hackers, experts say.

Digital thieves have been finding ways to hack into money sharing apps like these, sometimes swiping thousands of dollars from unsuspecting customers.

So how can you protect your money? Experts recommend creating a separate bank account for the apps, with only enough money for your digital transactions.

And make sure you know which apps you’re using – some bank customers say they were signed up for Zelle without their knowledge.

Do you use any of these apps? How much of your banking is done online?
