New Mobile App - Single Password across all Apps

Safe365 Mobile App User Update April 2021: Version 3.0 Release Notes

  • The ability to 'switch' between multiple organisations via the Safe365 mobile app is included in the Safe365 version 3 mobile app to be released end of April 2021. 
  • The release also includes an upgrade so users will have one user login for both the Safe365 mobile app and Safe365 website to make it easier for users to log in on either platform, while also setting up the technology for a 'browser-based reporting' release later in 2021.
  • Enhancements to data security protocols to further protect user and organisation data
  • Depending on your mobile device, the Safe365 mobile app upgrade to version 3 should be automatic unless you have disabled automatic app updates. If you have disabled automatic app updates, visit the app store after 1 May 2021, search 'Safe365' and install the updated version on your device.

Release Notes
At the end of April 2021, Safe365 will release a new version of the Safe365 mobile app (version 3.0).

This is an important release that includes some major enhancements being available in the new version.

Multi-Organisation access – switch on the go from the mobile app!

The new version 3.0 mobile app will give users the ability to ‘switch’ between different organisations they have access to. 

If you get invited to join another organisation by email, once you accept that invitation by clicking on the invitation link in the email, the organisation will become available in your organisation list on the Safe365 mobile app.

To switch between organisations, log in on the mobile app, tap the admin menu (white circle icon, top right on the app home screen), click ‘Change Organisation’, and select the desired organisation from your approved list and you will be then switched to that organisation. You will then have access to that organisations checklists and any reports completed on the mobile app will be submitted to the organisation you are currently switched to.

You can check at any time which organisation you are currently switched to by looking under your name on the Safe365 mobile app home screen where it says “Connected to:”.

One login for mobile app and Safe365 website 

Safe365 is aligning the Safe365 mobile app password to the Safe365 web application password, meaning users will only have one set of credentials to use both web and mobile applications.
If you are a Safe365 mobile app user only, nothing will change when your Safe365 app upgrades to version 3. Continue to use your existing email and password to access the Safe365 mobile app.

If you are a Safe365 mobile app user and also have access to the Safe365 website app on the same email address (username), after upgrading your mobile app to version 3, you will simply login with your website password, whether on mobile app or website.

If you are not sure or have any issues with logging in on the Safe365 mobile app, the ‘Forgot Password’ link on the login screen can be used, and this will reset your password for both the Safe365 mobile app and Safe365 web app logins for that email address.

If you have any problems or issues, please ask your organisations Safe365 system administrator or submit your query to support@safe365global.com .
