Is Cash App Safe?

To find out if Cash App is safe, I conducted a series of malware tests. Here are the results:

Malware:

I installed the Malwarebytes Browser Guard on my Chrome browser and browsed the Cash.app site without any issues.

To check this further I ran malware scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot – Search & Destroy and both scans returned no malware detection. I ran a third scan with Microsoft Defender on my Windows 11 operating system and no malware was found. The Microsoft Defender scan was a full system-wide scan that included every file on my computer’s hard drive.

To confirm that the site is clean, I also checked the site Cash.App on an online malware scanner and it returned with no issues. You can see the same here: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/cash.app

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.
