Nextdoor is an app that privately connects you with your neighborhood. It’s designed to keep neighbors connected by allowing them to send urgent alerts about suspicious activity, share a photo of a lost pet, warn neighbors about road construction, and more.

“Nextdoor has become the lifeline to the neighborhood. Neighbors rely on Nextdoor for straightforward things like finding a babysitter, to personal things like finding a lost pet, to critical things like hearing about a rash of break­ins,” said Nirav Tolia, Co­Founder and CEO of Nextdoor, in a press release.
