How To Fix BeReal Notification Not Working
One of the common issues users are facing is the BeReal notification not working the way it should.
Some users are not receiving the daily "time to be real" notification. Other users are shown their friends' BeReals instead of prompting them to take a picture when they click on the daily notification.
If you are suffering from the former issue, we recommend you turn on Time Sensitive notifications. Those experiencing the latter problem can try closing and reopening the app until the prompt to take a picture finally shows up.

If your friend is not receiving your request, just cancel the one you have sent and send it again. To do that, tap the friends icon on the top left, select Requests and tap Sent. Here you will see pending requests. Cancel it and send one again. Repeat this until they receive your request.
In case you can't add them, and when you click the Accept button it loads forever and nothing happens, just restart the app and see if they are in your friend list already. If not, tap Accept again and repeat the process.
