About Us

Nextdoor is the online neighbourhood hub for trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services. We believe that by bringing neighbours together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighbourhood they can rely on.

Building connections in the real world is a universal human need. That truth, and the reality that neighbourhoods are one of the most important and useful communities in our lives, have been a guiding principle for Nextdoor since the beginning. Neighbours in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Australia, Denmark, Sweden, and Canada are using Nextdoor to:

  • Spread the word about a lost pet
  • Recommend and discover favourite local businesses
  • Sell unwanted household items
  • Receive important safety information from neighbours and trusted authorities
  • Meet neighbours over a cup of coffee or organise a community group

Nextdoor is a privately-held company based in San Francisco with backing from prominent investors including Benchmark, Shasta Ventures, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins, Riverwood Capital, Bond, Axel Springer, Comcast Ventures and others.

Nextdoor is free, and it’s easy to sign up.

Our Manifesto

We are for neighbours.
For neighbourhood barbecues. For street parties. For borrowing a cup of sugar, and sharing a cup of tea.
We’re for slowing down.
We’re for sharing a local tradie and a great babysitter.
We’re for lending a helping hand.
We believe waving hello to the new neighbour is a great “Welcome”.
We believe technology is a powerful tool for making neighbourhoods stronger, safer and happier places to call home.
We’re all about online chats that lead to real world connections.
We believe fences are sometimes necessary, but online privacy is always necessary.
We believe strong neighbourhood connections improve our lives.
We believe that amazing things happen when neighbours start talking. 

We are Nextdoor. We are simply you and your neighbours, together.

Your Privacy

Nextdoor is committed to earning trust every day. Since day one, Nextdoor has required people to use their real name and verified address, so members can trust that their Nextdoor neighbourhood is made up of real people at real addresses. This creates the trust and accountability that cultivates kindness online and into the real world. We have a dedicated Trust and Safety team to ensure that:

  • Private neighbourhood conversations are not indexed in search engines.
    Your Nextdoor neighbourhood is protected by password and encrypted by HTTPS.
  • We do not share your name, address, or email address with public services and partners.
  • We’re committed to the privacy standards established by the California
  • Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Australia’s Privacy Act and Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
