People are using Nextdoor in over 180,000 neighborhoods around the world to:

• Track down a trustworthy babysitter
• Quickly get the word out about crime and safety
• Get a recommendation for a great deal on house painters
• Hire a pro to help walk your dog
• Share information during a natural disaster
• Sell an outgrown bicycle
• Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name

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.

Great to be part of the Neighborhood!

I enjoy this app for the most part and find the good outweighs the bad for me. I like that our neighborhood beat cop can post information and alerts; it has an option to list items for sale or go to the marketplace if you’re shopping; keeps me updated on road closures/construction; neighbors can post/reply to each other - we’ve discussed alternatives to our local cable company; neighbors reporting suspicious activity and one even uploaded a surveillance video of someone stealing a package off their porch)...and the like. Plus you can choose how large you want your neighborhood to be - the whole city or specific neighborhoods. What I don’t like is really only the lost/found pets posts. When i first joined, I saw a post and thought how useful this is, what a beneficial service - and it totally is! But I had no idea how many animals go missing or are found in my area. Easily 4 posts per day on different animals - so I get 4 emails that day - because I get a new email for each new post (not the replies to them, thank goodness). Now I could alleviate this by reducing my neighborhood area, or by opting out of email alerts - either of which I want to do because I like to keep up with what’s going on in my area - I guess I’m a cyber-Mrs. Cravitts. Anyway, I think most people, even student renters, would like this app.

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.

I JUST CHAGED MY RATING FROM TWO,STARS TO ONE. Out of curiosity as a I was reading other reviews as saw many people who wrote like they understood privacy issues outraged so I took a look at the privacy statement by Nextdoor which incidentally is in very tiny print only on the website. I suggest you read before signing up or at a minimum reading the privacy policy if you can find it. Because they have your address confirmed by you they ( and many other third parties or less than credible individuals) have additional ability to use or hack personal information. Nextdoor says they can even use SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS. I believe this could all be well intended in the name of security but seems to me to be very risky.

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.
