How do I adjust my Mobile App settings?


In the Mobile App settings, you can find information about the app, log out, adjust your notification settings (Android) and more. 

Here's how you can find the Settings page:

  • iOS devices: Go to your Home screen and tap the 'gear' icon at the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Android devices: Depending on your device, you can access the Settings page by tapping the 'three vertical dots' icon at the top-right corner of the Home or Profile screens, or you can tap your device's Settings button when viewing the Home or Profile screens of the app. 

Push Notifications

  • iOS devices: To adjust your Push Notification settings, you can do so by tapping into your device's Settings page > Notification Center > Couchsurfing. Once on this page, you can edit your alert preferences. 
  • Android devices: To adjust your Push Notification settings, tap into the Settings page in the Couchsurfing app > Notifications. You can then select which types of notifications you would like to receive. 


Privacy Settings

On the Privacy Settings page, you can select whether or not you would like to display your Username on your profile rather than your full name. 

To access other Privacy Settings for your account, please do so from the website. Here is a link to your web Privacy Settings



If you are interested in Verifying your account, the Settings page also links to the Couchsurfing Verification page. On this page, which will open in your mobile web browser, you can enter your details and payment information to be on your way to becoming fully Verified.
