How to stay safe on SLAY

Join only schools you currently attend.

Schools are offered so friends can find each other. If you join a school that is not yours, people who don't know you can request to be friends with you. Never join a school you don't attend.

Only send or accept friend requests from people you know in real life.

Real people, real interaction.

Don't share phone numbers, devices or codes with your friends.

Sharing phones or your phone number can lead to your account being compromised or your user data being corrupted.

Disable access to your location after login.

SLAY does not need your location signing in. We only use it to find nearby schools for you to join. Disabling it will not affect your experience. To disable it, open the Settings app ' select SLAY ' Set Location to Never.

Setting privacy preferences.

Your friends can see your Slays when they visit your profile. If you don't agree with this, you can hide them by going to Edit Profile ' Manage Account ' Hide Top Slays.

How to protect your friends.

Report users who break the rules.

If you see a user breaking the rules, open the user's profile ' tap in the left corner ' select Report User. Enter as much information as possible in the input field.

Do not log in under another user's name.

SLAY works best when the names you see in the surveys are who they say they are. Signing up with a fake name will hurt our community.

Do not use inappropriate profile photos.

Your profile photo should represent you. It doesn't have to be a photo of you, but you should never post a photo with graphic or hateful imagery. Moreover, don’t use a photo of another user


How do I register?

You can download the SLAY app from the AppStore or PlayStore and register there.

How does the app work?

How do I add friends?

At the end of the registration process, you can add your friends from your contacts or you can go to the friends tab in the app. There you will see several options:

- Your mobile contacts
- Your friends from school
- Search by username

Can I see who sent me the compliments?

You only see the gender and class of the person in question, this makes everyone feel safe to give compliments to other people.

Are all compliments real?

Yes! We would never send automatically generated compliments to our users. All compliments come directly from your friends, classmates or contacts.

Why do I have to use my real name?

You should always use your real name, so that your friends can find you better and it is easier for them to vote. Therefore please pay attention to it:

- Do not use a fake name
- Do not create multiple accounts
- Do not impersonate another person
- Don’t join a school you are not in
