Fixes For Venmo Error Code 0Auth2

Note: Before moving forward we will advise you to check for any kind of pending updates for your browser or the Venmo app. If you come upon any pending updates make sure to install them and then check for the error again.

Fix 1: Try Switching Between Devices And Browser

During our research, we found several users who were having the issue only with specific devices. For some users, the error was coming with the Venmo app on their phone but using Venmo from a desktop browser was working fine. But for some users, it was using the Venmo app on their phone which was not showing the error.

Even though we have found a few users who were having the issue specifically with the Chrome browser but the error was not showing upon using Venmo from any other browser.

So, we will also advise you to switch between different devices and browsers.
