I have an Android device. Why does it ask me to log in again?
MyMSK will ask you to log in again when your device is not using certain security features. If you do not use a screen lock, you must log in again to use some app features.
We recommend you add a screen lock to protect your medical information. A screen lock will lock your device each time you turn it on or wake up the screen. To unlock it, you use a PIN, face recognition, pattern, password, or fingerprint.
To set up a screen lock on your device, go to “Settings” and tap “Security.” If you don’t see “Security” go to the technical support site of your device’s manufacturer for help. Tap “Screen lock” and pick the option you want to use. You can also select this link for more information.
I added an appointment to my device’s calendar app. Will my calendar update if I change or cancel the appointment?
No. Calendar apps include the iPhone or iPad Calendar, and Google Calendar. They will not update automatically if your appointment changes. There are 2 ways to make updates to your mobile device’s calendar if your appointment changes:
- You can update the appointment yourself in your device’s calendar.
- Delete the old appointment from your device’s calendar. Then add the updated appointment back to your calendar from the MyMSK app.
