How to accept/deny friend requests on iOS

Last Updated: Sep 24, 2018 08:18AM CDT
Accepting or denying Friend requests

If you have a friend request, a circle with a number will be displayed on the friend icon at the top left of the Home feed. It will also be displayed in the in-app notification (bell icon) section. Depending on what you have chosen in your notification settings you may also get a push notification or an email with the request.

To accept or ignore each friend request:
  1. Select the friends icon in the upper right corner to see the request(s)
  2. Select Accept or Ignore under the name of the user requesting friendship
Note: you must be signed in to your YouVersion account in the Bible App in order to see friend request(s).


If you accept a friend request but the person doesn't appear on your friend list, check the number of friends you have.  There is a 250 friend limit so accepting new friend requests will 'not work' if you already have 250 friends.
