Do I have to use my real name?
Every neighbour signs in using their real first and last name, just like they'd introduce themselves in person.
Using your real name (and not an alias, pseudonym, or abbreviation) helps to build trust among neighbours. This leads to better communication and fosters a stronger community.
Keep in mind that our Member Agreement requires that members use their real name, or the name by which they are commonly known in their community. Violations of the member agreement may result in consequences such as suspension from your Nextdoor neighbourhood site.
