Detailed Description

Update

Skout is the largest global, mobile network for meeting new people. At Skout, we are true believers in preserving the "magic" of serendipitous meetings, and we've made it our mission here to be active enablers of just that. With your mobile device as your guide, you can discover new friends at the local neighborhood bar, at a concert at Madison Square Garden or on a bus tour in Barcelona. Our community spans more than 100 countries and is available in 13 different languages. Skout is dedicated to providing a platform that people can easily and safely connect on, and hopefully change their lives. Skout has an entire dedicated internal department to app security that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in 180 different countries. Available on iOS and Android.
