Other users can find you using the search bar on our website. Tap on the "more" icon (icon with the three dots) on the top right to see the feature "Find Friends".
Here you can search for other komoot users by entering the display name or the email address your friend is using on komoot. The real names of your friends are private and will only show up if the user saved their real name as display in their profile.
If you want to follow a fellow user just go to his or her profile and click "follow". You can find more information about Managing your followers and Profile visibility here.
