Add a document from your camera

  • Open your fyio and log in with your password or (recommended) using touch or face ID.
  • Click on the + icon at the bottom of the screen
  • Click upload
  • Choose camera
  • Take a photo of your document (this happens in-app keeping your data completely secure)
  • If you’re happy with the photo click use photo and upload and save
  • NB: If the document has more than one page continue using the camera to take a photo of each page and when done click upload and save
  • Name the document where indicated (document title)
  • Select a category – eg, Vehicle
  • Select a sub category – eg, Vehicle Insurance

Top Tip: When you share a document it will land in the recipient’s corresponding drawer – eg, if you were to you share your car insurance document with a partner or friend, it will land in their Vehicle Insurance drawer. 

In most cases this is obvious but where there might be more than one option, eg, a copy of an offspring’s passport, this might be better filed in the Passports drawer rather than in the Children’s drawer.

  • If you want to, add a note
  • If the document needs renewing or has a deadline, click on the renew icon and set a renewal date and then set a reminder date to receive a reminder notification
  • Save document
