Sharing is caring! The Bird Buddy app allows you to share the experience with friends and family by inviting up to five people into the app via invite codes. Once added, they are able to connect to your Bird Buddy, while you can monitor their activity, as well as revoke their access at any time. 

You can receive an unlimited number of Bird Buddy invite codes and add them to your Bird Buddy account, which will allow you to switch between all of them from within the app. The photos you take from any of the connected feeders will unlock those birds' profiles in your Collections.

 

Sending an invite code

In order to grant a friend or a family member access to your Bird Buddy, you need to send them one of your five available invite codes. You can find and share the codes in the Settings menu of the feeder you’d like to share.

  1. In the main menu of the app, select the Bird Buddy feeder you want to share with someone to access that feeder’s settings.
  2. Scroll down to “Manage members”.
  3. Tap on any of the free invite codes to bring up the “Add new member” screen.
  4. Now you can share the code by copying it or sending it via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

  1. Once the other person claims the code, you will receive a notification, asking you to confirm their membership. 
  2. Tap on “Confirm friend”.
  3. In case you receive an unexpected member request, simply tap “Doesn’t ring a bell”. This will deny their request.

Using an invite code sent to you 

If this is your first Bird Buddy feeder 

If you’ve downloaded the Bird Buddy app, but don’t have your own feeder to connect your account to, you can easily utilize an invite code, if one has been sent to you.

  1. If you haven’t already, create an account.
  2. When you receive an invitation code from a Bird Buddy owner via text or on social media, you will insert it after the sign up process.
  3. After signing into your account enter the invite code that was shared with you and tap on “Submit code”.
  4. Wait until the invite sender confirms your request to be added. You will see a confirmation screen when this step has been completed.

If you're already connected to another Bird Buddy feeder

If you’d like to connect an additional Bird Buddy to your account, you can do so through the main menu. You can connect an unlimited number of Bird Buddies to your account and switch between them within the app. 

  1. In your setting menu, tap “Add Bird Buddy”.
  2. On the opened pairing screen, select the “Have a friend with Bird Buddy?” option.
  3. Tap the “Enter your invitation code” option on the newly opened screen.
  4. Enter the invite code that was shared with you and tap on “Submit code”.
  5. Wait until the invite sender confirms your request to be added. You will see a confirmation screen when this step has been completed.
