FreeStyle LibreLink is a mobile medical app designed to work with FreeStyle Libre sensors.
The app enables you to monitor your glucose using your iPhone or Android phone with a FreeStyle Libre sensor — there is no need to use a separate blood glucose meter for routine glucose monitoring.1,2
When you scan the sensor with a compatible phone that’s running the FreeStyle LibreLink app, your glucose data is displayed directly on that device.
1 Use of FreeStyle LibreLink requires registration with LibreView, a service provided by Abbott and Newyu, Inc.
2 The FreeStyle LibreLink app is compatible with NFC enabled smartphones running Android OS 5.0 or higher and with iPhone 7 and higher running OS 11 and higher. FreeStyle LibreLink may not be available everywhere LibreView is released.
If FreeStyle LibreLink is available in your country, you can learn more at FreeStyleLibre.com.
In order to share FreeStyle LibreLink data with your doctor using LibreView, your doctor must set up a LibreView Professional Account and enable the Practice feature. Once this is complete, your doctor can either:
1. Send you an email from LibreView inviting you to share data, or
2. Provide you with his or her unique Practice ID.
If your doctor sent you an email, you can click on the link in the email to start sharing. If your doctor gave you a Practice ID, you will need to go into LibreView and enter the Practice ID under My Practices in your Account Settings.
LibreView uses only the data from the device that was last used to scan your sensor. You can switch devices from the Available Meters window.
