Real names

… and Bill in Berlin

Imagine an old school friend, or a former teammate, is searching for you in VZ. He or she will only be able to find you if you have entered your real name.

Note: Hearts and stars in your name will not be recognized by our search function. If you have a name such as
"♠ ♥Hαsi_ιiεbt_Schαtzι ♠ ♥"  the chances that your friends will be able to find you are slim.

… the bigger picture.

Many users have dozens of friends in their friend list. It’s only possible to keep an overview of who’s on this list if everyone uses their real names.

You’re using a pseudonym to retain some privacy? Then have a look in your Privacy settings – here you can select that your profile content is only visible to confirmed friends.
