To check in, you need an active internet connection and a Nokia account. To share your location, you also need a social networking service account. The supported social networking services vary by country or region.

  1. Sign in to your Nokia account, or, if you do not yet have one, create the account.

  2. It is possible to share your location on the social networking services that you use. When you use Check in for the first time, you can set your account credentials for the services that you use.

  3. Select your current location.

  4. Write your status update.

    You can post only to selected services that you have set up. To exclude a service, select the service logo. To exclude all the services, keeping your location and status update private, clear the check box marked with and post on. To set up a new service account, select Social settings icon.

You may also be able to attach a picture to your post, depending on the social networking service.
