Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I would like to be able to view my profile from within the Android app.


  1. Link before/after the "Feed" link that will lead you to your Stack Exchange Profile.
  2. Icon link to the right of the site links in the "Favorite Sites" list that leads to that site's profile.
  3. Link in the notifications menu at the top that leads to Stack Exchange Profile.
  4. Clicking asker/answerer user name should link to site profile.

Is there a specific reason that accessing profiles has been blocked on the app?

First, thank you for your time in testing our Android app - we appreciate it.

We do have a user profile view planned for our beta release which is now underway. Most of the ideas you have here will be implemented.

This is now live as of version 0.1.78 which came out on 12/12/2013.

You can tap on anyone's face anywhere in the app to see their profile and you also have an item in the left-side nav with your name on it which you can tap to view your own.

Viewing your profile contains a bit more information than when viewing another user's profile, and that's by design, check it out and let us know what you think!

Excellent! Any chance we could have the app open links to user profiles? Or that usernames on comments could also take us to profiles? – HodofHod Dec 16 '13 at 16:06
@HodofHod both excellent ideas I'm sad I didn't think of, make a feature-request for them so we can both hopefully get more hats! – Kasra Rahjerdi Dec 16 '13 at 16:07
