In the Cortex ecosystem, friends can share files with each other even if they are set to private. To become friends with someone you both have to be followers of each other.


1. Use the Discover page’s search function to search for a user.

2. Tap the “Follow” button next to the user you wish to follow. The status will change to “Following”.

3. When they follow you back, you will be friends and will see each other on your Friends lists.

4. You can share your items with a friend via Quad Cortex or Cortex Cloud, even if your items are private.

5. Shared items will be available for download on your Quad Cortex, under Directory > Shared with me.
