What is Synced?

Using the Synced app and website you can leave virtual marks for people to find in the real world.

What kind of marks can I leave?
  • Public marks are marks visible to anyone close to the mark's location

  • Private marks are marks only visible to specific people when they come close to the mark's location.

  • Spaces are areas of the world you can pre-define for people to put marks into.

Location/scanning isn't working on my device!

Try the following:

  • Make sure Synced has permission's to use your device's location. If you have denied permissions, please re-enable them.

  • For Safari users, enable location services by setting Preferences > Privacy > Prompt for each website one time only

  • We recommend using the Synced app on your smartphone to have the best ability to scan for marks.

  • The next best option is the synced website on a smartphone. You will need to have Synced open in the foreground of your browser to scan for marks.

  • Lastly it's possible to use the website on a computer, but you'll need to have Synced open in the foreground and scanning might be hit-or-miss.

Add new people to an existing mark

You might think someone you know would find a mark interesting. Write @theirusername in the comments section to subscribe them.

I can't see all my subscriptions!
