  2. Make sure that the Care App is allowed to access the network on the companion device.
  3. BYOD Check that the correct Care App version is installed. 
    • Go to the Apple App Store (ios) or Google Play Store (android), search for the Care App, and check if the app needs to be updated. If so, proceed with updating the app from the Store.
