As of April 6 2021, we've seen a large increase in the number of spam accounts on komoot. These are newly created accounts with a sexually suggestive profile picture that link to pornographic sites. Once these accounts are created, they like large numbers of Tours that have been uploaded by other users.

Status: We have automated alerts and warnings in place in order to detect accounts like these as quickly as possible. All accounts that we know of have been blocked in our system. Please only report an account to us if you do not receive an error message when you click on their profile. 

Outlook: We are currently investigating additional options in order to limit the number of notifications that they are able to send out and are continuously improving the detection of spam accounts and our handling of them internally. Our apologies for the inconvenience!
