All other social media accounts are through the mobile app! Follow these steps to

download the mobile app, and you can check off new accounts in Connections once

you’re set up.

A) In your App Store or Google Play Store, search ‘Multibrain.’ It is the app that is just

one word.

B) Once downloaded, enter your account email and click on ‘Send me a new code.’

Check your email for a 6-digit code. If you don’t receive it, go to Connections on

the desktop, click on Manage devices next to mobile apps, and generate a new

6-digit code to enter.

Share posts with!

One Note: These apps have a policy that does not allow direct posting and

scheduling from a third-party app. So, when you schedule content to TikTok,

for example, you will receive a mobile notification at the selected time alerting

you that the post is ready. Click the notification, and follow the prompts to

share your scheduled post on TikTok quickly.
