How to add Mobile Cards

With Airfob, mobile access cards give you the ability to open doors. These are stored in the Airfob app. Access cards can be permanent, such as those for full-time company employees, or can be set to expire, such as those for short-term guests.

If you are visiting a space with an Airfob access control system and don’t have a mobile card to access the space yet, contact your host or the site administrator. They can issue a mobile card for you and you will receive an invitation by email or text message (SMS).

Click on the link included in the invitation, then the Airfob app will automatically install and your mobile card will download. All you have to do is bring your smartphone when you visit the place and simply tag it on the card reader installed in front of the entrance door. The Airfob app allows you to store a number of mobile cards.

Ex. I have a new gym membership, how can I add a membership mobile card?
1) Require the gym administrator to issue your mobile card.
2) You’ll receive an invitation by email or text message (SMS).
3) Click the link in the middle of the invitation.
4) If it is your first time using the Airfob application, it will automatically go to App Store or Play Store to download the application.
5) However, if you already have the application, the mobile card is automatically added.
6) Allow enabling Bluetooth service and Location services. The Airfob App does not store location data.
7) Everythings are ready to enter the gym using your mobile card.

Managing mobile cards

Only one mobile card can be issued per site (visited space, service provider). However, multiple mobile cards issued by multiple sites can be stored in the Airfob app.
If you use the Airfob service in a co-working space, a gym, or a community center for clubs, you can issue one mobile card for each space, and you can store and use three mobile cards in one application.

2. Delete Mobile card
If you no longer use your mobile card, you can simply delete it. Open the Airfob app and select the mobile card you want to delete. You can find the trash bin icon under your mobile card and tap it to delete it. Please note that if you delete a mobile card, you cannot use it right away, and if you need it again, you must request a reissue from the site administrator.
