What’s the difference between FreeStyle LibreLink and LibreLinkUp?

FreeStyle LibreLink enables users to carry out routine glucose monitoring using a smartphone and a FreeStyle Libre sensor. It is designed to be used by people with diabetes who require insulin to manage their condition.

The LibreLinkUp app enables users to receive glucose readings on their smartphone whenever a loved one scans a FreeStyle Libre sensor using the FreeStyle LibreLink app.  It is designed primarily to be used by parents and other caregivers. The LibreLinkUp app cannot be used to scan FreeStyle Libre sensors.

Anyone can download the LibreLinkUp app, but you must be invited by a FreeStyle LibreLink user in order to start receiving their glucose information.

A FreeStyle LibreLink user does not need to have the LibreLinkUp app installed on their phone in order to share glucose data with LibreLinkUp users.
