Downloading and Authenticating App

From EBSCO FAQ page on App 

Begin by downloading the DynaMed app from the iTunes or Google Play app store. After downloading, there are two ways to authenticate the app.

  1. Sign in with your Personal User Account.

    Tap Sign In and enter your personal user account credentials. Then tap the Sign In button.

    • This authentication type provides access personalized features including CME/CE/CPD tracking and favorite/recent topics.

    • Don’t have a Personal Account? Create one by accessing DynaMed on the web through your institution and then selecting the Sign In link in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

    • Please note: ECU students, faculty, staff etc. can authenticate the app off campus by reaching DynaMedex through the link on the library website (which authenticates users as ECU affiliates) and then signing up for a personal account. Once a personal account is created, users can then sign into the account on the app to authenticate. 

  2. Log in via your institution's network.

    Tap Institutional Network and then tap Authenticate to log in to the app if you are connected to your institution's Internal Network or Local Internet via Wi-Fi.

    Please note, this authentication type must first be enabled by your institution and it does not personalize you for features like CME/CE/CPD and following topics.

Once successfully logged in, the app is designed to stay logged in indefinitely. This works by checking your account behind the scenes every 24 hours to make sure your subscription is still in good standing. If you experience problems staying logged in, please submit Feedback in the app describing the problem and be sure to include your email address where prompted so that we can contact you.

After you log in, you are prompted to install via one of the following options:

  • Online Only: Use the app only while connected to the internet.

  • Partial Install: Store text and image thumbnails on your device. Full images are available when you are connected to the internet. This option helps you save space on your device.

  • Full Install: Store all DynaMed content on your device. You do not need to be connected to the internet to access content on the app.

Note: It is recommended that you are on a Wi-Fi connection for the initial download of DynaMed content as well as when updates become available.

After choosing an installation option, you can use the app online while the content is downloaded to your device. You are notified when your download is complete, and the app can be used while offline.
