You can delete the Cash App from your phone, but first you have to disable your account.

The Cash App is a useful app for transferring money easily to friends, family, or other contacts with just the use of your phone, very similar to Venmo.

However, since it's linked to your bank account, if you want to delete it - whether because you found a similar app that you like better, or because you simply don't use it anymore - you can't simply delete it from your home screen like a regular app.

If you do that, your account will still be open with them and your bank account will still be on file. If you truly want to close your account, there is a short process you need to do on the app first.
