Unfortunately Moneta App has quite a considerable number of negative reviews. However these negative reviews are mainly about the functional issues of the app like verification failure, payment failure etc.
So in our opinion, these aren’t major deal breaking reviews but yet wise to consider when using the Moneta app.
