The Uptime.com mobile application is available on both the iOS app store and Google Play. Our mobile application allows users to monitor checks and receive push notifications for up and downtime alerts, so you can manage your alerts and checks on the go.
Please note: If your account uses 2FA, Uptime.com suggests creating a dedicated view only account for mobile app usage. You can learn more about new user setup here. If your account forces SSO usage, the mobile app will not be accessible pending a forthcoming upgrade.
