Hackers are targeting payment apps like Venmo and CashApp

Do you use money-sharing apps like Venmo, CashApp, or Zelle?  I know I do without much thought at all. That might change, however. Experts are warning to beware of hackers who have been focusing on these popular apps. Digital thieves have been finding ways to hack into money-sharing apps like these, sometimes swiping thousands of dollars from unsuspecting customers.

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