How do I temporarily block requests for adoptions?
We get it! It's not always convenient for local hosts to be accepting requests from backpackers for adoption.
There is a simple way to indicate that you don't wish to receive adoptions at this time.
- Make sure that you're logged into the website, and go to the Edit Profiles section: https://www.abroadly.net/edit-profile
- The click on the Edit button
- You should then see a screen with the option to toggle on/off your 'Availability for Adoption'. The pop-up help text (the little question mark) for this explains as follows: "When you put your profile on Not Available, other users will still be able to find and message you but they cannot request an adoption with you."
- Don't forget to set this back to "Available" when you are available again!
