Is there a way to delete 'friends' from the app?

You know what I’d like to be able to do? Delete folk from my ‘contacts on Monzo’ with whom I’m unlikely to ever have any financial transactions… i.e. people who are in my phone’s contact list that I may have worked with ages ago and never see any more, people who are just acquaintances and the like. I really don’t want them to show up as contacts, just the people I consider to be my ‘friend-friends’, know what I mean? Is there a way to edit your friends list? To delete people and then rearrange the folk you keep? Apologies if this has been answered a gazillion times. I did have a search around first before I asked, honest!


I believe more controls over contacts/payees is something that is being worked on - but there is no confirmation as to what will be included yet.

The short answer is no. It’s all contacts or none

If it’s one or two people that you don’t really connect with or plan on using then it’s the case of removing their details from your contacts then refreshing the app but if it’s bulk not at the moment but it’s something that should get support later down the line.

If it’s one or two people I believe that if you contact in app support, they can also remove them too :slight_smile:
