Join Nextdoor

Last Updated: Apr 18, 2017 01:22PM PDT

Nextdoor is the private social network where neighbors work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world.

And, it's free.

You can join and verify in a neighborhood if you:

Get started in five easy steps.

  • 1. Join your neighborhood

    To connect with your neighbors, you'll need to create an account on Nextdoor. You do not need an invitation to join Nextdoor.

    If you did receive an invitation, please follow the instructions below and enter your code when requested.

    1. Visit www.nextdoor.com.
    2. Enter your residential street address* and email address

    3. Select Find your neighborhood. At this point, one of two things will happen:
    • If there is already a Nextdoor website for your neighborhood, you will automatically be assigned to that neighborhood.
    • If there is not yet a Nextdoor website for your neighborhood, you'll be given the option to create one.

    4. Complete all of the required fields.
    5. If you received an invitation to join Nextdoor, select  and enter the code on the postcard in order to give your neighbor credit for inviting you.
    6. Click Sign up.
    7. Finally, verify your address.

    *Nextdoor does not support the use of P.O. Boxes. Members must join using their physical address.

    1. Download Nextdoor for iPhone​ for free and open the app.
    2. If you received an invitation code to join Nextdoor, tap USE INVITE CODE. Otherwise, tap CREATE AN ACCOUNT.

    3. Complete all of the required fields.
    4. Tap Next. At this point, one of two things will happen:
    • If there is already a Nextdoor website for your neighborhood, you will automatically be assigned to that neighborhood.
    • If there is not yet a Nextdoor website for your neighborhood, you'll be given the option to create one.
    5. Finally, verify your address.
    1. Download Nextdoor for Android​ for free and open the app.
    2. If you have received an invitation code to join Nextdoor, tap USE INVITE CODE. Otherwise, tap CREATE AN ACCOUNT

    3. Complete all of the required fields. 
    4. Tap Next. At this point, one of two things will happen:
    • If there is already a Nextdoor website for your neighborhood, you will automatically be assigned to that neighborhood. 
    • If there is not yet a Nextdoor website for your neighborhood, you'll be given the option to create one.
    5. Finally, verify your address.

    If you own multiple homes, follow our instructions to join Nextdoor at your second home.

  • 2. Verify your address

    Before you can gain access to your neighborhood's Nextdoor site, you must verify your address.

    We offer several ways* to verify:

    • Phone number
    • Credit or debit card
    • Postcard
    • Last 4 of SSN
    • LexisNexis
    • Lead approval

    For complete instructions, visit our article on verifying your address.

    If you have moved and need to verify at your new address, please follow the instructions on changing your address.

    * Not all verification methods are available for all addresses. 

  • 3. Confirm your email address

    When you join Nextdoor, you must confirm your email address by clicking on the confirmation link that we send you in an email. Email confirmation is separate from address verification.

    If you do not confirm your email address right away, a red banner will appear at the top of your Newsfeed as a reminder. Eventually, you will stop receiving emails from Nextdoor altogether if you do not confirm your email address.

    You can change your email settings at any time.

  • 4. Get Nextdoor on any device

    Some of Nextdoor’s best uses, such as posting Crime & Safety news you just witnessed, sharing photos of items you're giving away, and looking for dinner recommendations happen when you're away from your desk.

    Download the Nextdoor app on your iPhoneAndroid, or iPad to take the power of Nextdoor wherever you go.

  • 5. Introduce yourself

    After you verify your account and are granted access to your neighborhood's Nextdoor site, you will be given the opportunity to post an introductory message, like the one below.

    Hi neighbors! My name is Sally Smith and I just moved to the neighborhood. My husband, Trent, and I have 3 kids and 2 loving dogs. We love hiking and cooking. Hope to see you around the neighborhood!

    You can choose which neighborhoods can see your posts on Nextdoor.
