What neighbors are saying:
“Before Nextdoor, I didn’t know there were several qualified babysitters living nearby and looking for work. It was easy to feel comfortable hiring my neighbor’s daughter to watch my son after school.” - Patrick, Mission East
“This year for Spring Cleaning, we wanted to sell old appliances, tools, clothing, and electronics on Nextdoor’s For Sale & Free section. In no time, our neighbors stopped by to make a deal and take things off our hands. It was easier than anything else, and it feels good knowing our household items have found a new home in the neighborhood.” - Dan, Hayes Valley
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Nextdoor doesn't run GPS in the background unless you give us permission by turning on optional features that require it.

Ratings and Reviews
Originally I was just using Safari to access it once in a blue moon when I would see a new post update in my email. Last night my husband and I went to my parents for dinner. When we arrived home we found all 3 of our dogs had squeezed under our privacy fence and were gone. 2 of them were at our neighbor’s across from us. Our 3rd dog is special and just keeps wandering aimlessly no matter what. He’s a stocky pittie and is over the top sweet (would help a burglar carry our belongings out of our house very some love) so I was very afraid the wrong person would get their hands on him. After searching through the farms down the way, driving around trying to see in the dark, having a friend to search all different lost & found websites I finally remembered the nextdoor app. As soon as I pulled it up, sure enough, there he was in photos at someone’s house two roads over. I’ve always found this app interesting and somewhat resourceful for my husband’s side work but I didn’t think it would be that extremely helpful on my main screen so I never downloaded it until today lol. From now on it’s staying on my main screen.
Giving up YOUR PERSONAL INFO BIG TIME! Developer contact hidden.
This is very odd and annoying. I remember long ago when it was not uncommon for apps to display only vertically.
“Long ago” being a friendly hint to the app developers.
Also, contacting the company is impossible to ask a question. I remember long ago (again with the “long ago!”) when app developers would try to hide from consumer contact. Overall, good features and great concept, but clunky and not consumer friendly in a few areas. Also, be careful about setup or you will have some annoying calls and e-mails. Would be more stars if only the developers were a little more transparent. There is not a single e-mail address in the app.
After a year I’m suspended
Hi. I received an email from Rebecca with no last name saying that there are members that have an issue with my screen name on Nextdoor. Why? If you view my history I have not caused any issues. I have attempted to sell things and I have given things away with no issue. I have been in the area for some time now and a member of Nextdoor for a little more than one year I believe and never has there been an issue with my name before today. My “neighbors” will never “know” me. I’m not out in the community and I keep to myself. My last name is real and just as Rebecca chose not to provide her last name to the email sent to me I should have the right not to provide my first name. How I choose to identify myself isn’t relevant to my behavior on the Nextdoor site. I could be Lisa Standsfield, but you would never know otherwise and i take major offense in you suspending my account as a result. How do I know that Rebecca is really a member? Or is in charge of Nextdoor compliance. Or is who she says she is? Here’s the other thing my name isn’t common first or last. I vote and pay taxes, but I can’t omit my first name on your system? A system I don’t even use that often? Really? Keep your account access. Knowledge of me on the Nextdoor app doesn’t in anyway affect my standing or lack there of in the community. You are wrong on so many levels.
