Why Should I Activate My Location?

With Skout, you can chat with people everywhere, all over the world! But let’s say you want to make a new friend nearby – someone to even hang with tonight! Then you want to be sure Skout is showing you new people near your location. To chat with local Skouters faster, make sure your location is accurate!

Not sure if you’ve activated your location? Swipe down on your Android phone’s main screen and then tap the Location button.
