Every Poparide member has a profile, providing information to other members. Profiles help you decide who to travel with.
Each member must provide the following personal information, which is displayed on their profile:
- Their first name
- Their age
- Their gender
- A profile picture
- A description
Provide real information
Please note members are required to provide real information about themselves. This contributes to a successful rideshare experience, built on trust and transparency.
Your profile must contain:
- Your legal name (no username or nicknames are allowed)
- A real profile picture showing your face
- A real vehicle photo and accurate vehicle details
If your profile shows misleading or inaccurate information, it can be subjected to closure.
A profile picture helps build trust in the community. We recommend posting a photo where you're smiling, as it will get you more trips and bookings!
A description helps show other members your personality.
We recommend being as transparent as possible when writing your description. Don't hesitate to share personal details about yourself, such as where you normally travel to, what activities you're into, etc.
