Using Veggly is quite easy. After you setup your account, you just Like the people who interests you in the Home page. When a person likes you back, you have a Veg-Match and you two can start chatting.
Important: The people you see in the Home page are sorted mostly by Last Online. You can change that ordering at the floating blue icon on the top-left corner. The other options are: by distance and by new users first.
You may click the filter icon on the top and filter people by age, distance and diet/ lifestyle.
You can slide left to hide a user’s profile in the Home screen. This only means the user will not show up in the Home screen anymore. You may even hide people you liked and you will still Veg-Match with them, if they like you back. If you change your mind, the hidden users can later be found and Unhide at Settings -> Hidden Profiles.
Hiding is also available at the profile menu (three points at the top-right corner)
You can report fake/ scammers using the three points menu at the profile’s top-right corner. We take this issue very seriously and ban users on a daily basis, based on the reports. You can also block them immediately after you report.
Also be sure to always follow our safety tips.
We are investing in intelligence systems to identify and ban these scammers before they cause trouble. Some of these systems are already in place. Unfortunately, not all of them get blocked. BTW, one of the safety tips above is to chat more through the app before exchanging other means of communication. If they ask for your number or email right away, beware!
And again: the abuse reports are really important for us!
You can also send audio messages. To do that, click the audio icon once, record your message and click it again to send.
The Super Like improves your changes of a Veg-Match with someone you want to make sure to notice you.
When you Like someone, you will get a Veg-Match if they like you back, either going through the Home screen or if they are a subscriber and see that you liked them.
A Super Like goes beyond!. It will send the other person an email, a notification and it will show up in their app in the Super Like tab. So , they will know you liked them and they will read your message. It’s still up to them to like you back (for free) so the Veg-Match happens and the conversation continues.
A good and complete profile is the best way to improve your chances of a Veg-Match! We do suggest a few things:
- Complete your about section: describe yourself, what you like to do and interesting things about you
- Upload all 9 pictures, some clearly showing yourself and some showing your lifestyle: what you like to do, your pets etc
- Open the app frequently. The default order of people’s feed is mostly by “Last Online”. That means when you login, your profile goes to the top and is presented to more people
- Consider changing your filters of age and distance. This may not be an option for you but it’s worth revising if, to find a Veg-Match, you wouldn’t be willing to go a bit farther away or out of your age range
In the Settings tab, you can change your settings, logout, manage your account (including deleting it), read about our privacy terms, see the profiles you’ve hidden, and open Veggly Store.
