Spok Mobile is an app that allows users to receive pages sent to their pager number on their smartphone, and is our chosen method of secure paging. Messages are encrypted and allow for redundant delivery (to both pager and smartphone). Spok Mobile does not require users to carry a physical pager, but users can elect to retain a physical pager for redundancy or coverage concerns.


You will NOT receive pages to your Spok Mobile app if you put your smartphone in Do Not Disturb, Airplane mode, or otherwise do not have any cellular or Wi-Fi data coverage.

Android users, follow this tutorial to minimize delays when receiving pages on Spok Mobile.

Follow these steps to change monitored app settings.
