The award-winning young Nigerian writer and journalist, Izunna Okafor has clocked 28 years old, with laudable feats, goodwill and achievements.

In an interview with newsmen, Okafor (born January 9, 1994), said his life has indeed been a testimony, looking back to his background, where and how he started.

According to him, being a son of a palm-wine tapper, hunter and electrician in a rural village; he started struggling his way out early in life, precisely during his secondary days when he began to do some handiworks, such as cutting palmnut, hunting, clearing bushes for farmers, tilling the ground/farmland, packing/dumping sands (in rivers), among things.

It was from these, which he said he was doing after school hours, that he saved money to publish his first book, ‘Ikem's Adventure’ back then in 2012 during his secondary school days —a single act that did not only pave way for metamorphosis in the taste of his life story, but also eventually landed him on the track of greatness where he rides and resides till date.

Cash App is a convenient and user-friendly way to send and receive money, but what happens if you need to clear your transaction history? Unfortunately, Cash App doesn’t allow users to delete their transaction history - but don’t worry, there is a workaround. In this article, we will walk you through how to delete Cash App transaction history.

1. How to Delete Transaction History

Cash App is a convenient and user-friendly way to send and receive money - as well as track the location of where your cash went. But what happens if you need to clear your transaction history? Unfortunately, Cash App doesn’t allow users to delete their transaction history.

All of your transaction history will remain for up to 90 days and records the payments you make, including the sender, recipient, amount, date, and reason the transaction was made.

To delete your Cash app transactional history, you will need to observe all the steps listed below to ensure that all of the information is gone. For example, if you have performed 3 transactions in total, you will need to remove info for all those transactions on your Cash app.

1. Go to the “Settings” section by tapping the three dots menu and select “Preferences” at the bottom.

2. Select “Transactions” on the left side line of settings “Preferences” pane (allow this only on iOS), then you need to untick “Show Deleted Transactions.”

3. You will see the “Deleted” section (middle section) on the payment history page of preferences. There you can also see “Transaction reason” as you perform a cell phone transaction the duration for which the history can be saved from their apps.

2. How to Delete Cash App Transaction History

Cash App released some new features earlier this year in an attempt to boost user adoption. One of the features is an easy way to add any purchases to your transaction history.

Previously, transactions were stored in the in possession format (IGP), which was only accessible on your device. Now, you can easily sync your transaction history to your favourite cloud platform or third-party app, such as Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, and Google Drive.

If you continue using the app, the transactions may remain stored on the device forever, regardless of whether the app is updated or not.

If you want to completely clear transaction history, you need to manually delete the transaction history from the app.

To delete all cash close transactions from your app account, open up the app, tap My transact history, tap your account from the top menu bar, pick the transaction option for the item you want to delete, tap Delete Cash, tap Submit to delete the cash operation, and wait for the operation to finish.

You can repeat this process for any item.

The only time you won't be able to delete a transaction is if the purchase is invalid.

3. How to Delete Transaction History From Your Cash App

Cash App allows its users to send and receive money daily without any wire fee. But, what happens if you need to delete your transaction history?

Unfortunately, Cash App does not allow users to delete their transaction history. But don’t worry, there is a workaround. By turning off the “Sync Transaction History” option in account settings, users can delete their transaction history, even after the syncing process has started (this method will also be the fastest ).

How to turn of the “Sync Transaction History” in Cash App settings?

In your Cash App settings, on the left column, there is a drop-down menu named Syncing this will turn into this logo:.

Find the column “Sync” and double click it.

On the page that will open, sadly, you will not be able to find anywhere to change the option to turn off the syncing. You will have to find another solution to turning down the option of the syncing.

However, if you scroll down and click the gear icon on the bottom-right, on settings page, you will be able to change the option to turn off the syncing.

In my case, I actually did get this result. I turned off the option, the syncing began and then I was able to delete the transaction.

4. How to Delete Cash App Transaction History

Cash App is a handy way to send money. Sadly, once we make a transaction, it usually sticks around for a long time.

But it is fine if you find yourself needing to delete the transaction.

If you check the link under your transaction panel, you could right-click on the transaction and find an option to delete it. Be careful, though.

It won’t just come off, but actually wait until you confirm it.

If you wished to ease yourself into a new relationship, you would use a condom.

5. how to clear transaction history on cash app

It seems like every online and digital wallet app unique in some way. Sometimes that approaches the point of being a completely unnecessary hassle. However, I received a question to how to delete transaction history on that quite a while ago. No answer was provided, so I figured I’d dedicate my time to covering it.

Many users usually put their financial life development on online digital and electronic wallets. For that reason Cash App is 1 out of the options there to keep an eye on your transactions.

You see, Cash App does 200.000 hard drive cycles every month, which is an average, so we can’t know what happens to you if you don't delete your transaction history. The good news is, it apparently only deletes what you’ve copied and back-up. You don’t need to install any software on your computer to create a backup.

Okay, that sounds like a reasonable realization.

However, if you are going to use a different method for back-up purposes in the future, you may want to find out the trick.

It is also confirmed by psychoanalyst and psychiatrist Cyndi Lauper. The analyst of yours truly said that we should keep in mind that digital and electronic banks hold things we put in. And people who don't want any more of it aren’t supposed to go back to the bank when they find out their cash was getting zapped.

6. how to check transaction history on cash app

During your research to see if trading is the right way for you, you may come across a company you like.

A company that you add to your Cash App personal and business spending accounts. There may be times when you receive notifications that you used advanced filtering. Slow down and consider every message you get - it could only mean one thing! You may have been profiled!

Are you paying attention? If a trusted person says, hey did you use that company? Then it should be very suspicious. If it is the first time you have an unexplained unavailable message from that company, you may not want to believe this.

As soon as you approve your first transaction from the company, you will get all of your transaction notifications up to the time you cancelled with the company.

Now that its over though, MoneyMe are a company that manage cryptocurrency for your business and personal banking needs.

Instead of CashApp, you use your banking credentials to login and choose the company you used to deduct money from - this is how you can find out if they've spotted your activity, MoneyMe runs a separate account compared to CashApp.

When you are done, MoneyMe will connect your CashApp account to the company, they are your new CashApp account.

This article's primary goal is a quick discussion of Mumbai Escorts' daily lives. The major goal of writing this post is to inform readers about how to change their lives for success. Everyone on earth, as we are all aware, aspires to success, but they are unaware of the precise procedures that would help them get there.

The majority of us desire the lifestyle of a model since they are alluring and appealing. Additionally, there is a perception among the general public that models live opulent lives and make large sums of money with little effort. All of these myths are disproved if we speak honestly since models put in the same amount of effort as everyone else. Since the girls with the ideal body are in short supply, escorts are more in demand.

Independent Escort in Mumbai

In the modelling profession, the lives of Mumbai Escorts Girls seem pitiful because they work long shifts or the entire day for meagre wages or just receive payment for lunch. This case demonstrates that modelling agencies simply care about getting their work done and have no regard for the wellbeing of the models. Since the modelling agencies need new faces at regular intervals, this business employs a large number of people. The modelling industry also views Mumbai Escorts, who are 26 years old, as being too old, which is one of the key reasons why it needs new talent. Due to its shortcomings, modelling work is viewed as being unreliable, unpredictable, and insecure.

Mumbai Escorts who work in the modelling profession are required to keep zero size figures, which causes their bodies to lack the appropriate nutrients. The models must overcome numerous obstacles in order to receive the correct medical care because this work does not give health-related treatment, or you might say health insurance. They only become well-known and famous for a brief period of time before being replaced by new faces. Additionally, a number of odd and bizarre incidents involving Mumbai Escorts and sexual tiredness occur. In this industry, there is always competition amongst models. The model only achieves recognition and notoriety for a brief amount of time before being replaced by another. If they gain even a single kilo, they may also receive insults regarding their appearance. Female modelling is just ludicrous, in my opinion.

Escort Service in Mumbai

Shoes are a natural obsession for girls, and Mumbai Escort Services are no different. With the appropriate footwear, they prefer to glam up their appearance. The glamour and lifestyle industries are also aware of the escort business. And the women who work in this industry are renowned for establishing their own trends and sense of style and for making the fashion industry revolve around them. They like paying attention to every single detail, whether it be their attire, hair, or accessories. The same is true for the shoes. They also take great care to choose the appropriate pair of shoes for each occasion. Hire them to observe how they elegantly distinguish their fashion trends with shoes if you want to witness these stylish ladies in their complete form.

The ladies from the Mumbai escort services prefer to point out every feature of style while they are escorting you to any function. They are aware that glam shoes are required for gatherings in order to complete their ensemble. In order to arrive with you in style, they choose wedges and high heels. In addition to their captivating appearance and attitude, you will be astounded by their footwear selection. These girls enjoy updating their outfit with each style of shoe that is sold today. This is why it's crucial to let the agency know in advance if you're planning to hire escorts for a holiday.

Mumbai Escort Agency

It's fun to plan and travel with an escort, but much more enjoyable is watching them dress specially for you. The Call Girls in Mumbai are skilled in impressing and gratifying their customers to the maximum. Along with the gowns, they will also bring shoes that match the holiday's vibe to ensure they look their best while on vacation. from comfortable flip flops to casual footwear like Converse. They have a charisma about them that makes them appear lovely and adorable in anything they wear, including shoes.

Sometimes you find yourself hiring an escort for a professional function you'll be attending. It should go without saying that you want to make a good impression by having an escort with you. And these wonderful ladies are well aware of that. They will dress appropriately and wear formal shoes because it is a business function to make sure you do not feel embarrassed. Your happiness is the most important thing to them, thus they won't do anything to ruin your reputation or their job.
