How to check in on Foursquare without a smartphone or App

10 Nov

Many people may have signed up to Foursquare who may wish to check-in to their location using their computer rather than their mobile phone. This article shows you how to do this in 3 easy steps.

1. Login to the Foursquare Mobile website

At the moment, you cannot check in to Foursquare using the main website as Foursquare is a mobile-based social networking site. However, you can login to Foursquare using its mobile site. Therefore, to check in, go to and click ‘Log in‘.

2. Find Location

You will then be able to check in by clicking on ‘Check-in‘ and entering the name of your location.
If the venue is not known, you will be presented with a list of possibilities. If one of these fits with the description of where you are, you can select it to check-in. If nothing on the list fits the description of the venue you are in, you will have to add it to Foursquare before you can check in there.

3. Check in

Once you have entered your location, you can decide whether to show your location to friends, or whether to keep the check-in private. You can also decide whether to share your check-in with friends via Twitter or Facebook.

If your check-in is public, you can decide to add a ‘shout’, which will be a message displayed with your check-in.

Once you have made these decisions, you can click on ‘Check-in’. This will then be entered as an activity on your history.

As you can see, it is not difficult to check in to Foursquare online. Obviously, you must make sure that you are in the location you say you are in – other this could be seen as cheating. However, this is a good way to check in for those who have signed up to Foursquare but do not yet have smart phones on which they can access the site.

If you want to find out more about Foursquare…

Then visit Social Media Forum. It contains loads of free reviews on all of the different social networking sites on the internet today.
