When judging a service like Cash App, I look at who the founders/owners are, and I look at how many people use the service. If the financial service is of a similar size to PayPal, I trust it. I have been using PayPal for decades and I trust PayPal. So I know Cash App can be trusted similarly. That said, we invite comments from those who use Cash App because reviews from real customers can also be useful. Overall grade: Very Safe.
