Yelp allows you to set your preferences across a variety of categories, like “Food & drink” and “Things to do,” so that it can serve you better recommendations and content as you browse the platform. Our guide will show you how to set your preferences within the Yelp mobile application.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Yelp app on iOS.
Step 1: In the bottom-right corner of the screen, tap “More.”
Step 2: Tap “Your Preferences.”
Step 3: Tap an icon to add it to your preferences. For instance, if you enjoy bubble tea, you can tap the “Bubble tea” icon to add it to your preferences.
There are lots of different preferences to choose from. Scroll down to see them all.
For some categories, there may be more options available than what you’re currently seeing. Tap “See More” under a category to view more options.
Step 4: When you’re done selecting your preferences, tap “Add preferences” at the bottom of the screen. Note: You only need to tap the “Add preferences” button the first time you set preferences on your account. If you come back to this menu at a later date, you can add preferences by simply tapping on the icons, and your choices will be saved.
