Nextdoor is a private social network for your neighborhood. It was created based on the idea that the neighborhood is one of the most important and useful communities in your life. With Nextdoor, you can build stronger and safer neighborhoods with your neighbors.

How does Nextdoor work?

Each neighborhood creates a private Nextdoor website that is accessible only to the residents of that neighborhood. Once neighbors join their neighborhood website, they can find neighbors in the resident directory, view a neighborhood map, ask for advice, exchange local recommendations, and share neighborhood information with each other. 

How to Join Nextdoor with Invite Code?

Nextdoor is completely free for neighborhoods and their residents. 

If your neighborhood has already set up a Nextdoor website, asking him/her to invite you. Then you'll receive a unique invite code. Just go to the website and enter your "Invite Code" and "Zip Code", then follow the instructions to complete the registration process.
