What is the FreeStyle LibreLink mobile app?

The FreeStyle LibreLink app is a mobile app designed to work with FreeStyle Libre Sensors. The app enables you to monitor your glucose using your iPhone or Android phone1 with a FreeStyle Libre Sensor — there is no need to use a separate blood glucose meter for routine glucose monitoring.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.

With the app you can:  

  • View your current glucose reading, a trend arrow, which indicates how your glucose is changing, and the last 8-hours of glucose history
  • See glucose reports, including your Ambulatory Glucose Profile, which reveal trends and patterns
  • Add notes to track your food, insulin use, exercise, and other events The FreeStyle LibreLink app is a mobile app designed to work with FreeStyle Libre Sensors. 

 

1The FreeStyle LibreLink app is compatible with NFC enabled phones running Android OS 5.0 or higher and with iPhone 7 and higher running OS 11 and higher.

2The FreeStyle LibreLink app and the FreeStyle Libre reader have similar but not identical features. 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 Sensor or when symptoms do not match the Sensor readings.
