For UWF users who would like to access their UWF Gmail accounts on their mobile devices, these users are strongly encouraged to use the official Gmail app (most Android devices may already have the official Gmail app installed).

This page details how to install this app, how to add a UWF Gmail account to the app, and how to switch between multiple Gmail accounts in the app.

Do not make your UWF Gmail Account the primary account on any of your personal devices. 

All UWF students and nearly all UWF employees will lose access to their UWF Gmail accounts at some point.
