Spotted is a hyperlocal app that connects you quickly and easily with people around you who share the same interests and who have crossed your path.

Starting in 2013, driven by this thought, we have reached millions of people from Berlin and Paris to San Francisco and New York to Casablanca and Kuala Lumpur.


How does it work?

It helps you find people you met along the way. Write posts and find new people to go out with.

After users install the app on smartphones and allow tracking via GPS, they will be regularly located and will later be shown all people who have been in the same places at the same time and people who they might have met.
The platform serves as a gateway to:

  • Discover people that spend time in their favorite places and meet like-minded individuals.
  • Write posts anonymously and find new people to hang out with.
  • Start meaningful connections and conversations with nearby people.

Using it via a computer would interfere with this feature or make it less accurate, which could decrease its effectiveness.
