How to import friends based on email or phone number?

I would like to be able to recommend potential friends based on information that the user might have in their contacts, such as an email address or phone number.

I don’t see any API calls for this, but is it possible for server-side extensions to query the table of accounts based on this information, please?

Thanks for your help!

Hello @himmelattack

In order to implement such feature, you need to store that information somewhere and this is PII(Personal Identifiable Information). Have you taken GDPR and Privacy Shield into consideration?


That’s a good point!

But in the case where someone authenticates via email, then we are already gathering this information and storing it, right?
