What if I want to end a chat/ meeting with a connection?

Not feeling a connection? Totally fine. This is where the automatic timer feature comes in handy.

You can also either cancel the request, block & report, or politely walk away if you’re looking for a quicker end.

How long can I stay checked-in at a location?

Stay checked in for as long as you’d like! If you’re feeling someone’s vibe, you can checkout to let people know you’re no longer available. If you’re curious to explore more connections, stay checked in!

If l'm already floking with someone, can others see me?
