How to Add Mobile Key to Your Phone

Mobile Key (version 10.7.0 on iOS and Android) will be unlocked for the Stanford community on the following release dates:

  • June 30, 2022 (faculty and staff)

  • July 6, 2022 (students and postdocs)

Update on 6/27/22: Due to the impact on building access equipment from last week's campus power outage, we need a little more time. The original June 28 release for faculty and staff is postponed to June 30. Thank you for your patience.

Follow these steps to add Mobile Key to your Mobile ID. Already using Mobile Key from the pilot? You won't need to re-add Mobile Key but make sure to update your Stanford Mobile app to the latest version. 

1. Launch the Stanford Mobile app.

2. Navigate to the Me tab and Login with your SUNet ID and password.

3. Once logged in, tap the settings gear icon.

4. Tap Add Mobile Key.

5. Select Yes, I would like to activate to confirm that you would like Mobile Key added to your device.

6. Mobile Key will activate in less than a minute. Click Done.

7. You will see a green Open button on your Mobile ID. To begin using, tap your phone on a card reader to unlock a door, or stand up to 12 inches away from the card reader and press the Open button.
