Please make sure that the internet connection on your phone is reliable for the entire download session when beginning the download. Using the card requires a working internet connection through either a mobile network or a wireless local area network. You can check the reliability of the connection by opening a website on your phone’s internet browser.
Please remove the old membership card first. Then carefully follow the download instructions given by your phone. These instructions are model specific and, thus, vary from model to model. If you have the time, you should check the FAQ section below before beginning the download.
Card delivery and introduction
After paying the membership fee, you will be sent a download link by email. The association office will update the year displayed on the front page of the card annually. Permanent members and members who have paid fees for three years will see the year 2017 on the card’s front page. Next year, the year will be updated to 2018 at the turn of the year. A permanent membership card is coloured gold.
Please open the link found in the email message on your phone to download the card directly to the phone. Install the card as instructed by the phone. NB! Do not open the link on a computer or tablet.
Downloading the card on different phone models
Installing the app varies by phone model. In most Android phones, as well as all iPhones and Windows Phones, the app installation procedure is identical to creating a bookmark for a website: the app is added to the phone’s home or start screen from the browser menu. In some Android phones, particularly older models, a large Download app button will be visible on the download page. By clicking the button, an installation package to install the app will be downloaded to the phone. This package is identified by the .apk extension. Please follow the instructions given by the installation page.
The instructions on Android phones can be slightly unclear, so be patient. When instructed to “Allow installation of apps from unknown sources”, this can be done from the phone settings under “Privacy and security” or “Lock screen and security”.
Using Easy mode or equivalent modes on your phone will prevent app installation. Change the mode to normal before installing the app.
