Q: How do I get the Bucknell Alumni App on my mobile device?
A: Search for "Bucknell Alumni" in the Apple App Store or in the Google Play Store. Once you have downloaded the app and opened it, you will be prompted to login.
Go to https://community.evertrue.com/bucknell to access the web-based app.
Q: Which devices support the mobile app?
A: The Bucknell Alumni App is currently available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android devices. We support iOS 8 and above, and Android 4.1.x and above.
Q: Is logging in easy?
A: Yes! When you open the directory for the first time, you will be given the option to login using your email address or your LinkedIn account.
If you choose to login using your email address, you will be prompted to enter your first and last name and an email address. If the email address matches what we have on file, you'll receive an authentication message in your email inbox. Click the "Verify" link in the email you receive (this must be done on your mobile device if you are logging into the mobile app) and it will grant you access to the directory.
If you choose to login using your LinkedIn account, simply enter the email address and password you have created for your account.
Q: What does it mean when my information is under review?
A: If the email address that you provide, using either the email or LinkedIn authentication option, does not match the information we have on file, you will be prompted to provide us with further information. You will be asked for your name, class year and other information that will enable us to verify your identity. You will then receive a notification allowing you access to the directory. This process may take 1-2 business days to complete.
Q: How do I customize my privacy settings?
A: We respect your privacy. If you choose to modify visibility of your personal information, please fill out the Bucknell Alumni App Opt-Out Form to make the request. Alumni who have previously elected not to be listed in the directory need not make a new request.

Anything marked as private in LinkedIn remains private. If you are not connected to that individual, you will not see his/her private LinkedIn information, nor will he/she be able to view yours. Don't forget to list "Bucknell University" in the education field in your LinkedIn profile, and be sure to join the Bucknell Alumni LinkedIn Group!
You may disconnect your LinkedIn account at any time, although if you originally logged in using your LinkedIn account, you will need to re-authenticate using your email address.
