# Troubleshooting

After opening my unikname App on my smartphone, I don't see the connection request!?

💥 You took too long, comme back to the website and try again to connect. Connection requests have a short lifetime, roughly one minute. If you open and unlock my unikname app after this time then the request won't appears.

💥 Check your data connection on your smartphone. Your smartphone must communicate to authentication servers, without network the request won't appears.

💥 Check your @unikname spelling and try again. If you enter a wrong @unikname then the request won't appears on your smartphone.

I don't receive any notification on my smartphone!

💥 Open my unikname App and click on the connection request. Even without notification you can confirm or reject connection requests by opening the App. You can check "notifications" are enabled into your settings.
