I have a problem while locking the scooter. What do I do?
We aim to make our tech bullet proof. However, sometimes an issue might still occur. The timer in our backend system will stop when you first try to lock the scooter so you won't be charged any extra. Try locking the scooter again. If it still does not lock, contact our support and we will lock the scooter for you.
I have a problem activating my account from the link I received. What do I do?
Make sure you open the link from the phone you have installed the Hoop app. Note that the activation link will not work on your computer/tablet or another phone. If the link opens in a browser (safari, chrome) you should long press the link from the email, and when you see a pop-up to choose which app to open the link in, choose Ride Hoop app. Please also note that the gmail app handles long press a bit differently in Iphone. So with Iphone+gmail you should copy the link from the email and paste it to apple notes. Then long press the link (in apple notes) and choose to open with Ride Hoop app
