What does it mean to Pop my Popl Profile?

A pop occurs when you touch your Popl to the back of another person’s compatible phone to share your Popl profile! This sharing is initiated by a push notification that will appear on the other person’s phone. If that notification is tapped, your profile will load in the browser on their phone. No app is required for this! Your pop count is the number of times you pop your Popl profile. In the future, we will have rewards for reaching a certain number of pops. So let’s get poppin!

When someone with a Popl pops you or you scan a Popl QR Code, the new person gets added to your People Page™️ automatically.
