I don't have a Polarsteps account: How can I follow someone's travels?

  1. Go to the Polarsteps website
  2. Search in the search bar for the person who's trip you want to see
  3. If that person has a public profile and a publicly visible trip, you can view the trip just like that.

If you can't see a trip and/or if you can't see the person's profile, then he or she probably has set the privacy settings on ''My followers''. In that case, you will need the so-called '' secret link'' to the trip you want to view. 

This Secret Link can only be shared by the creator of the trip. Via this link, you can check out the trip without an account on Polarsteps or having to install the app. By clicking on the link, you can see the latest updates and whereabouts of the traveler. 

How to get the secret link?
So, ask the person who's trip you want to see very sweet and politely if you can have the secret link to his/her trip.
