Linked accounts

In the LINKcat Mobile App, you can link multiple LINKcat accounts to one primary LINKcat account. After linking the accounts, you can then view checkouts, renew items, place holds, as well as view fines and digital barcodes for all accounts linked, as long as you remain logged in to the Mobile App using the primary LINKcat account. If you log out of the app, then the linked accounts will have to be re-linked to the primary account.

For example, if Parent1 links accounts for Parent2, Child1, and Child2, then all linked accounts are viewable in the Parent1 account on Parent1's device. If Parent2 wants to view accounts on their device as well, then Parent2 must log in to the Parent2 account on a separate device, and link the Parent1, Child1, and Child2 accounts on that device.

Please note that linked accounts are only available in the LINKcat Mobile App. Linked accounts are not available in the browser version of LINKcat ( If you link accounts in the LINKcat Mobile App, the accounts will not be linked in the browser version of LINKcat (
