Copy the <code>briar://</code> link and send it to the contact you want to add.
You can also share the link with another app for sending.
Paste the link that you receive from the person you want to add into the text field below.
Click "Continue" and add a nickname for the new contact.
Finally, you will see a "Pending Contact Requests" screen
that informs you about the state of each pending contact.
Briar will attempt to connect to your contact regularly to add them.
If it was unable to add your contact for more than 48h, you will need to try again.
Once a connection succeeds, you'll be added to each other's contact lists.
Congratulations! You're ready to communicate securely.

You must meet up with the person you want to add as a contact. Each of you will scan a QR code from the other person's screen. This ensures you're connecting to the right person, so nobody else can impersonate you or read your messages.
