When did Chess.com start recommending friends?

Allegretta

I just got a message from someone who said Chess.com recommended that I be that

person"s friend. I do not like that Chess.com has started doing this. How can I prevent

Chess.com from attempting to choose my friends? That is terrible.

No thank you, Chess.com!  

Please tell me how to stop this!!!!

Very angry at this invasion, and it's not very nice for the other person, to put them in that position.

I just received a message from someone who said that Chess.com had recommended me

to be friends with that person. When did Chess.com start doing this? I consider that an invasion of privacy and very objectionable.  It is an infringement of my rights as a person that Chess.com thinks they can choose my friends. No thank you! Please tell me how to block this function.

when i opened a account in August 2020 ,i i did not get such recommedation

Allegretta

I opened my account in 2009 and this has never happened before.

Is this something new?

 

Krish_nair

the only thing is that you have the option to search people

Krish_nair

i think it maybe their new update of 2021

Allegretta

Unless this person made it up.

Krish_nair

Just go to settings ,you may get it there or You better contact a Chess.com staff

Does not sound like something chess.com does.  You can consider blocking the person that sent you the message.

Krish_nair

absolutely right @UpbeatAngle
