Adding the separate sign-in screen to an Android tablet

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

  • Open the web browser on the tablet (for example, Google Chrome)

  • 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) but do not try to log in yet:

  • First, click on the icon in the upper right corner of three dots

  • 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 tablet (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 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 tablet'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 the same one you enter daily, to activate the sign-in screen. Find this by logging in to the Famly app, selecting Sign in/out, and scrolling to the bottom of the page, as described above)

  • Uncheck the rooms you want to hide

  • Click ‘Save’
