How to Add the PUP App to your Home Screen
The PickUp Patrol app for parents is not downloaded from an app store. Our app uses cutting-edge technology that allows for faster logins, instant updates, and less storage on your phone. You simply add it to your phone’s home screen following the instructions for your phone type and browser below.
- Open https://app.pickuppatrol.net/parents in Safari.
- Tap the “share/send” icon on the bottom menu bar (rectangle with an “up” arrow).
- Choose “Add to Home" (you may need to scroll right/left or further down to see this icon).
- Rename the page with something short like "PickUp Patrol” or “PUP".
- Click ADD in the top right corner.
- PUP works in Chrome, but we recommend you use Safari to add PUP to your home screen.
