Frequently asked questions
Is Amigos free?
For what can Amigos be used exactly?
Amigos is meant to make any situation more fun. Ten examples of situations: You’re sitting in a park and want to know if the group sitting next to you, would like you to join them. You are in the mood for an afterparty. You are sitting in the train and want to know which people around you are up for a talk. You are sitting at home and you’re bored. You want to go for a stroll, but you don’t know anyone who wants to join you. You are looking for people who have the same hobby as you. You have travelled the entire world and found out that people in the Netherlands are very ‘closed.’ Your friends are getting civilized. You are new in town and don’t know a lot of people. You want to know where your friends are.
Is Amigos for all ages?
Amigos is for all ages starting from 18 years old. You can configure what ages you want to see, and vice versa with the age filter.
Do I have to meet certain requirements?
No, anyone who likes fun can use Amigos.
Can anyone just see me on the map?
No, only on the moments and places you want.
Is Amigos only meant for spontaneous contact?
Yes, with Amigos we want to make any situation more fun. Most of the time, spontaneous contact is the perfect solution. With Amigos, you can find people around you who are up for the same things as you are and you can plan a spontaneous activity later that day.
Can you schedule an activity through Amigos?
Yes! This can be done spontaneously on the same day or even a week or month ahead!
How can I plan an activity via Amigos?
You can do this by clicking the ‘plus button’ on the map. That way other amigos are able to see what you have planned and they can decide to join.
How am I able to see if there is something to do in my neighbourhood?
On the map you’re able to see where amigos are up for, these are the icons on the map. Amigos who have made an activity will be shown on the map with an orange location pin. If you click on this pin, you will be able to join the activity.
Can I bring someone along if I have joined another amigo?
Of course! The only thing you must do is to invite this person. This can be done by going to the activity and clicking: ‘Invite someone through Whatsapp.’ He or she has to register through the link you sent them.
Can I chat with someone before joining their activity?
Yes! At every amigo there is a chat symbol shown. This way you could, for example, discuss a certain time and location. Or could ask if you need to bring something.
What’s the difference between a person icon and an orange location pin?
A person icon is an amigo who is up for something right now. For example a talk. In that case a text cloud will show up on the map. An orange location pin means an amigo has planned an activity or that an activity is already taking place.
What do the icons in a profile mean?
The door icon is how often someone has joined, the plus is how often someone has created a moment and the star is how often someone has been rated as a favorite by other amigos.
How do I know if someone is trustworthy?
We do everything we can to make sure only true amigos are using the app. You can help us, by giving every amigo a recommendation or report them after every activity you have been to. This way we can easily block unwanted ‘amigos.’ New in the app soon: a mandatory SMS verification and an optional ID verification for a blue check mark on your profile.
What is the protocol for a report?
If you have an Amigos account, you can report a profile or activity that does not meet Amigos community guidelines. A report is anonymous. However, if you would like to get in touch with the Amigos team to clarify your report, you can do so via WhatsApp. The account that you report will not see who reported it.
What are the Amigos guidelines?
The purpose of this app is to create an open culture together. These can be situations that you organise yourself or where you are in attendance. We want Amigos to remain a reliable and safe place for spontaneous socialising. Examples of situations that are not allowed: Commercial events. Everything related to hard drugs, sex and discrimination. Vacancies. Promotion of another platform. Hateful language. Incorrect information. Scams or fraud.
Can I invite amigos to my home?
Yes, you can choose your own location or a location close to you. Then, you can invite amigos through the chat and send them your exact location. An amigo only joins when you have accepted his or her application.
Where is Amigos available?
Everywhere. Amigos has been launched throughout the Netherlands! Soon we will go to Belgium. And from there to many more countries.
