A screenshot posted by Wong shows a form asking users to "Enter your teen's info," including their first and last name and date of birth.
Venmo didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
The company, which is owned by PayPal, also offers a debit card linked to a user's Venmo account. Users can pay with the card and then split purchases in the app, and can withdraw cash from MoneyPass ATMs in the US for free.
