Friendzr is a new way to make friends in London, filled with lots of new features. We’ve captured some of the most frequently asked questions here, in one handy list.  We’ll keep adding to the list as time goes on – and you can also send us any questions or feedback you may have.

Friendzr is an app designed to connect you in real-life with new people and friends within your local area. We use latest technology to help you safely navigate the space around you, locating interesting events, workshops to attend and likeminded people to meet up with.

From ‘personal space’ and ‘private mode’ settings to facial verification and ‘block profile’ functionality, we have applied the latest security features to our app so that both you and your new friends and connections can feel safe. We only ask for limited personal information when you sign up and never share data with any third parties.

Download free on App Store or Google Play

Friendzr is only available in the UK. If your Apple ID is set for any other location, you will not be able to access the app. It is possible to change your Apple ID location to the UK; just be sure to cancel any subscriptions and spend any remaining balance.

Friendzr is free to download and use,  and it always will be. A premium version offering access to further features and benefits may launch in the near future.

Once you have downloaded the app and registered, there are a few ways to start connecting. You can head straight to the Map and see where other Friendzrs hang out near you and nearby events taking place. Your Feed will also list all online Friendzrs (based on your age, gender and distance settings). Your Feed displays Friendzrs by proximity; switch on the interest toggle to see how your interests match. Within Feed, you can also locate Friendzrs by toggling on the Directional Filter in the top right corner.

Finally, head to My Hub to discover our suggestions for Friendzrs you might want to connect with. You can also browse recommended events near you and track connection requests you sent and received.

First, you’ll look at the map and see where Friendzrs congregate near you or which events have been put on. Once at the location you have chosen then the Friendzr Feed will display Friendzrs closest to you by name and with a photo. You can the use directional filtering to list only Friendzrs in front of you. See the questions on directional filtering or go to the features page. Even better download the app and experience it for yourself.

To engage with someone specific from the Friendzr list, you can either message them or toggle on the directional filter. Point your phone discretely in any direction. Only Friendzrs close by will show up on the list. Then send a message or engage with them directly.

Striking up conversation can feel daunting, especially with new connections. You can find plenty of advice within our blog – also accessible from within the app.
