Note 1: When you download the app, push notifications are turned on and your text and email Remind messages are automatically disabled - so you do not receive duplicates.

Note 2: If you are adding your landline number to your account, keep in mind that it will only be reachable for: 

  • Voice calls: With voice calls, you can reach both mobile and landline numbers. Personal phone numbers stay private and calls are automatically logged.

  • Urgent messages: When administrators send urgent messages, they will reach everyone in your community across all available devices, including landlines.

Note 3: Always keep your Remind account up-to-date with your most recent contact information, and notify your organization if your phone number and/or email changes. This will ensure you receive your messages, and will also prevent someone else from gaining access to your account.
