My answer to your question, would be to insure you there is a way, how easy? that all depends on you.
1)are you the sender or receiver
2)yes you can meet in person but no you dont have to there is a way to wire money with a hold unless other wise.
3)it is always safer to do a transaction for BTC to USD or any other currency with a friend family-member or someone you truly feel you can trust.
W/U-has a security password an there for you would NOT use the receivers ID if yall are wanting to go grab a bite to eat an discuss thing I suggest the two party's meet at Star Bucks McDonald or somewhere with Wi-Fi an transaction would take place then an there remember 1BTC=414.59USD
You also need to take precautions that someone doesn't just steal your phone. So meet in a place with a difficult entry/exit.
Never done this before.
I've heard that the good way when selling
BTC for cash is to meet in the bank lobby and put money directly into the bank account.
