Adding the Separate Sign-in screen to an iPad

Follow the steps below to set up the separate Sign-In screen on your iPad.

  • Open the web browser on the iPad (for example, Google Chrome or Safari)

  • Enter the following address (for sign-in without pin) or (for sign-in with pin) in the address bar, where you normally type a website address and click Go

  • The sign-in screen opens (as below). Do not try to log in yet.

  • First, click on the icon in the upper-right corner of a little square with an arrow

  • Select Add to home screen

  • A small window opens, where you can change the name if you like

  • Click Add. Now the Sign-In screen is accessible from the home screen of your iPad (called Famly Sign-in, unless you have chosen a different name)

Activating the Sign-in Screen

The separate sign-in screen has to be activated by a manager, or member of staff with the correct permissions.

To do this:

  • Log into Famly, on the actual Famly app, as you usually do

  • Go to Settings

  • Click on Sign In/Out

  • You will see then see a button that says Show Password. This is the four-digit unique code that you will need to activate your sign-in screen:

    This code will change daily

  • Find the new Famly Sign-in icon on the iPad home screen and click to open it. You can choose your preferred language at the bottom of the page

  • Now you can log in with the unique password for your setting

Deciding which rooms you'd like to be shown on the sign-in screen

If you don't want certain rooms in your setting to be shown on the sign-in screen, you can deselect them.

Just follow the steps below:

  • Click on the icon of the Sign-in Screen, on your iPad's home screen (not the Famly app).

  • Click the cog icon in the upper-right corner. This is your settings menu

  • The Sign-in Screen will then ask you for today's password
    (This is the same one you enter to activate the sign-in screen. Find this by logging in to the Famly app)

  • Uncheck the rooms you want to hide

  • Click Save
