Info

Please update your Blink app if your settings appear differently than shown below. To learn more about updating, visit Current Blink App Versions.

We have made an exciting new update to our app with the introduction of our Account and System Settings redesign! All of the features that you are familiar with are still there. The only difference is how to access some of them. This article will give you a brief tour of the new layout, to ensure that you can get familiarized with the new design.

Note: The Blink app will only display in Dark Mode when that setting is enabled on your mobile device. Learn more about using Dark Mode on iOS and Android devices.

After downloading the iOS or Android app, sign in and you’ll see the biggest change to the app is on the bottom of the home page. Click to learn about current Blink app versions.

What hasn't changed

As in the case with our prior layout, if you have multiple systems on your account, you will see them listed at the top of the screen. You can tap or swipe between them to quickly access all of your systems.

To the right of your system names is a +. Whether you are adding a new system or add-on camera to your account, tap the + to get started.

To access the settings for a particular camera, tap the settings slider icon  settings icon  located above the right top corner of each thumbnail image on the Home screen.


What's new

Our new enhanced layout now has three (verses four) icons at the bottom of the screen. The first two; however, have not changed as shown below.

Tapping this will bring you back to the home screen where your cameras are accessible.

Tapping this will bring you to the Clip Roll where all of your Live Views and Motion Clips are saved.

Tapping this now brings you to the Settings screen, which contains all of your Account, Subscription Plan and System settings. This new design eliminates the need for a separate account icon. All of your account settings are now found on the Account and Privacy screen.
