Adding private strider as friend

I would like to add an IRL friend as a friend on City Striders but we both have our accounts set to private. Is there currently no way to do this without one of us changing our privacy settings?

You don’t have to change your privacy settings. Here’s how:

  • Person A shares their profile link with Person B
  • Person B visits that page, opens the three-dot vertical menu and chooses “Friend”
  • Person A visits their friend request page ( which is linked from the top right menu) and accepts the friendship

Couldn’t Person A never get to Person B’s profile page in the first place since it’s private?

You can visit any/every user profile page. The private accounts just aren’t going to show you that much information.
