    Herea¿s how it works: Login into Knock Knock and choose the information you want to share - phone number, email, Facebook, Linkedin, plus handles for Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram.

    When you meet someone new, who also has the app, you open Knock Knock and knock your screen twice.

    That alerts the other person's app that you want to connect.A

    If they knock their phone (the app does not have to be open, nor the phone unlocked), all the information is transferred.

    The knocking acts as a duel buy-in, that is, both parties must agree before the information is shared.
