What is the LibreLinkUp app?

LibreLinkUp1,4 is a free mobile app that allows family, friends, and caregivers to receive glucose data from Connections who use a FreeStyle Libre2,3 app with a FreeStyle Libre sensor.

Once you have installed the LibreLinkUp app and accepted an invitation from a FreeStyle Libre app user to connect, you will receive their glucose data on your smartphone.

LibreLinkUp users who are following Connections that are using FreeStyle Libre 2 or FreeStyle Libre 3 Sensors and a FreeStyle Libre app can also receive glucose alarm data and notifications5, 6, 7.

What causes glucose alarms to be unavailable?

Connections may have the option to use a Sensor with multiple devices. If you Connection starts their Sensor with another device, including their Reader, you will not receive glucose alarms.

You will only receive glucose alarms if you Connection starts a new Sensor with their app.

What smartphones are compatible with the LibreLinkUp app?

The LibreLinkUp app is compatible with many popular Android and iOS smartphones.

When a Freestyle Libre app user invites someone to connect, do they have to use the same first and last name that the Connection uses in their LibreLinkUp app account?

A finger prick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels or if hypoglycaemia or impending hypoglycaemia is reported by the FreeStyle LibreLink app or when symptoms do not match the app readings. The FreeStyle Libre sensor communicates with the FreeStyle Libre reader that started it or the FreeStyle LibreLink app that started it. A sensor started by the FreeStyle Libre reader will also communicate with the FreeStyle LibreLink app.
