Managing your personal account information is an important aspect of using any online service. It helps you control how you are represented to others, ensures that your information is accurate and up-to-date, and can even enhance your overall experience on the platform. In this article, we will discuss how to manage your personal account information on GeerGarage and what we use it for.

To manage your personal account information, go to the Account > Personal info page. Here, you will be able to configure the following:

  1. Your picture: Your picture is shown to the people that you do rentals with. This is an opportunity to make a great first impression and build trust with others on the platform. We recommend using a clear, high-quality headshot that accurately represents you. Avoid using pictures of objects or pets, as this can be confusing for others.

  2. Your bio: Your bio is a brief description of yourself that is shown to renters or lenders as you participate in rentals. This is a great opportunity for you to introduce yourself, highlight your interests or hobbies, or share any relevant information that may help others decide whether or not to rent from or lend to you. Keep in mind that your bio should be concise and friendly, as it will be the first impression others have of you on the platform.

  3. Your address: We use your address to match you with people who are close by for your rentals. We don't show your address to other users.

It is important to note that, at this time, users cannot change their phone number on our platform. This is because your phone number is used to sign in and access your account, and changing it could cause security issues. If you need to update your phone number, please contact our customer support team for assistance.

By updating your picture, bio and address, you can make a great first impression, build trust with others, and ensure that your information is accurate and up-to-date. If you have any questions or concerns about your personal information on our platform, please do not hesitate to contact us.
