How do I disable the iPhone and Android authentication link with EBSCOadmin?

The EBSCOhost and Nursing Reference Center (NRC) apps are available from the iTunes app store and Google Play for download and can be used with EBSCOhost, EBSCOhost Mobile, EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), and NRC profiles.

Note: The NRC app is only available for iOS devices.

Administrators may choose to disable the authentication link that appears in EBSCOhost, Mobile, EDS and NRC profiles using a setting in EBSCOadmin. When this setting is disabled, users are not able to authenticate the iPhone or Android apps to their institution's account.

To disable the Mobile App Authentication link:

  1. Log into EBSCOadmin at

  2. Select the EBSCOhost, Mobile, EDS, or NRC profile you wish to modify.

  3. In the General Settings sub-tab under Customize Services, change the Display Mobile App Authentication Link setting to No.

  4. Click Submit.
