9. Plan ahead. Before you request an order, review the safety features in the app so you know how to use them.
10. Set your meeting. KNGRO strongly recommends that all in-person meetings between you and Third Party Providers take place in a public location.
11. Share your meeting details with a friend. While en route, tap “Share status” in the app to share your Third Party Provider’s name, photo, and meeting location with a friend or family member. They can track your location without downloading the KNGRO app.
12. Protect your personal information. There’s no need to share your phone number or other contact information with Third Party Providers. If a you and a Third Party Provider need to contact each other, the KNGRO app automatically anonymizes both phone numbers to protect everyone’s privacy.

14. Give feedback on your transaction. Your feedback helps us improve the KNGRO experience for everyone. Our 24/7 global support team reviews feedback and will follow up with appropriate action on any reports of conduct that violate our community guidelines.
15. Transacting outside KNGRO. KNGRO provides a secure payment and messaging system to guarantee Shippers receive their shipments and Third Party Providers receive payment upon delivery.
