Pick yourself a cool nickname! Here’s how, why, and something more about your profile
Hello again! Here’s everything you should know about your privacy, and how to build a nice profile in the Byebye app, without developing your real identity (unless you want to, of course).
When you create the Byebye account, the username is automatically generated, in a “USER1234” format, whether you sign in with Google, Apple, or your email and chosen password.
Note: Signing in with Google means you’ll have your profile picture and email address pulled through from your account, while all the other fields will be left undefined. The email address won’t be visible to anyone.
WHAT CAN YOU EDIT?
Your account details are available in the left-side navigation drawer. You can edit the following if you choose to:
- profile image
- email address
- your job or whatever you do to spend your time
- your short story
WHY WOULD YOU COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE?
Username: because you get a more “personal” profile.
Spoiler alert: A cool link will be automatically generated for you (byebye.io/your-chosen-username). Soon you’ll be able to show your inventory to anyone, via this link, even if the other person doesn’t have the app. Nice!
Profile image: only for aesthetic purposes, nothing more. We’ve picked up a balloon for you, anyway. We thought you’d love orange balloons.
Email address: if you forget your credentials, you’re going to need this to reset your password.
Gender, age, country, location: the PEOPLE section has a filter option. By filtering exactly what they are interested in, all the users can get valuable output. That’s why we recommend editing these fields.
Important: We don’t use geolocation. Choosing the country is just a broad thing!
Job (or whatever keeps you busy), and your story: You can add them if you want to share more about yourself to others. These are intended to complete your profile, generally speaking.
All the above is what you should know about your user profile and privacy. Should be more than enough to give you peace of mind using the Byebye app.
SPOILER ALERT AGAIN!
Just to let you know, an accurate profile might help you unlock some features in the near future 😏
