- Upon receiving your scanner, Accushield will enable Accushield Mobile and touchless sign in for your community or facility.
- Once enabled for Accushield Mobile, administrators will find a unique QR code in the Accushield Dashboard that can be distributed to those interested in using Accushield Mobile (Settings > Sign In Features > Mobile App Download Settings).
