Connect with your friends and build new friendships with other Keepers that you meet during your journey. You can send Keepers that you are friends with gifts, see or share their current Dot, and even Hatch-a-Dot with them. 

Adding friends will enable you to see your friend's information. Also, your friend(s) will see some information about you, including your Keeper Name.

Visit our Help Center article "What Can My Friends See About Me"  to learn more about the information you share with your friends in Peridot.  

Keepers can view and accept or deny friend requests through their friends list. If they accept your request, you will become friends with one another and you’ll be able to see their profile through your friends list. Friend requests expire after 7 days. Adding a friend in one game will add them to other Niantic games or apps you both play. 

There are a few ways to add friends: by using friend codes or by adding someone directly from the Dot details page. 


To Add Friends using friend codes: 

  1. From the main screen, tap your Backpack

  2. Tap Dots & Friends

  3. Select the Friends tab

  4. Tap Add Friends

Use your 9 digit code or input someone else’s to send and receive friend requests. If you already have friends in other Niantic apps who also play Peridot, they will appear in your Friend List in Peridot.

To Add Friends from the Dot details page: 

  1. From the main screen, tap on nearby Dots or visit a Habitat.

  2. Tap on the Dot of a person you want to become friends with. 

  3. Tap on their Niantic ID, underneath their Dot's name. 

Note: If their Niantic ID is not tappable it means that they have opted out of allowing friend requests this way. 

To Remove Friends:

You can remove a friend from your friends list at any time. The person that you’ve unfriended will not be notified. If you decide that you no longer want a friend to see this information about you through their Friend List, you may simply remove them. Keep in mind that removing a friend in one game will remove them from other games as well.

  1. From the main screen, tap your backpack

  2. Tap Dots & Friends

  3. Select the Friends tab

  4. Tap on a friend and scroll down

  5. Select Remove Friend
