Receiving messages from a stranger on Path Talk

Last Updated: Jun 21, 2014 05:20AM SGT
If you receive a message on Path Talk from someone you may not know, it will appear in your message list differently to those from people in your own People List.

You will see: 

  • Full name
  • Profile photo, with blur applied
  • “Unread message” text in place of the actual message
  • The location it was sent from, if sender has this enabled

If you open the thread:

  • In the message view, you will be able to see the actual message
  • If you respond to the message, the person will be added to your People List with their full name and profile photo shown. This will mean that the person will be able to see any Status you have turned on
  • If you do not respond to the message, the unknown sender will not be added to your People List and will remain an unknown sender with the above restrictions in your Message List

If you dismiss the thread:

  • Tapping the red X will enable you to remove the message thread from the Message List
  • The unknown sender may continue to message you, but the thread will be muted, and you will not receive notifications of updates
