Quick Start Guide

for Patients

To use LibreView you will need:

A computer with a compatible Windows or Mac operating system
The corresponding data cable for the device, if applicable
A compatible glucose monitoring device

Using LibreView in partnership with your healthcare professional will give you greater insights into your glucose levels and enable you to more effectively manage your diabetes. Using the FreeStyle LibreLink mobile app* or uploading your compatible FreeStyle glucose devices directly into LibreView allows you to send results to your healthcare network easily and securely.

Not all devices, mobile apps, and reports are available in all regions. Units of measurement are for purposes of illustration and will be available as applicable per region. Note that only FreeStyle Libre and related products can be uploaded to Mac computers.

Installing Device Drivers

LibreView requires a one-time download and installation of a device drivers file that recognizes the glucose monitoring device when it is plugged in to the computer. Make sure you are using the most up-to-date version of your internet browser when starting the download.

  1. From the Upload screen, click the Select to Upload button under Upload a Device

  2. In the window that appears, click on the Download button specific to your computer's operating system

  3. Wait for the file to download onto your computer

  4. Open the downloaded file by clicking on it and allowing it to run

  5. Follow the prompts to complete the installation

Note: The downloaded file will appear and the bottom of the screen for Chrome and Internet Explorer users and the top right of the screen for Firefox and Safari users. If you are not using a personal computer, you may need your IT Administrator to grant permission for the download and installation.

Links to the latest LibreView Device Drivers are also available on the LibreView Support website. Search for the "Install LibreView Device Drivers" topic and follow the instructions to download and install the drivers.

Uploading from Apps

LibreView Device Drivers are not required to upload data from FreeStyle LibreLink apps into LibreView. If you only upload data with the FreeStyle LibreLink app, you do not need to install the drivers.

Uploading a USB Device

Once the device drivers are downloaded and installed, you can plug in a compatible device using the corresponding cable and start uploading data.

Things to note before uploading:

  • LibreView is compatible with Abbott Diabetes Care devices only.

  • Make sure the device's battery is charged and the device screen shows "computer mode" when plugged into a USB port.

  • Make sure you have the right USB cable for your device. A cable that you use for a different device may not work.

Uploading a USB Device:

  1. Connect your compatible device to a USB port on to your computer using the appropriate cable.

  2. Click the Select to Upload button

  3. Once the data is uploaded, the reports will automatically open

  4. Once the data is uploaded, it can be viewed anytime under the My Glucose section by clicking Glucose Reports.

Note: When you upload a device, you may need to allow your browser to access the Device Drivers file. Save time by ticking the box so your browser will remember your selection before selecting “Allow” or “Launch application”.

Note: If your healthcare professional uses LibreView, they will also be able to upload the data from your device during your appointments.

Share with your Healthcare Professional

If you received an email invitation from your healthcare professional, follow the instructions in the email to allow the connection.

Intended Use and Regulatory Information


LibreView, version 3.1
(including LibreLinkUp, version 3.0)


(01) 00860000502016

(10) 3.1 08 FEB 2020

LibreView Website


LibreLinkUp Mobile App



Safety and efficacy are key cornerstones in the design and support of the LibreView system. Newyu takes its responsibilities as a medical device manufacturer seriously.

LibreView includes the LibreView website and LibreLinkUp mobile app.

Intended Use

LibreView is intended for use by patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals to assist people with diabetes and their healthcare professionals in the review, analysis and evaluation of historical glucose meter data to support effective diabetes management.

In other words:

LibreView is a secondary viewer and is not intended to provide treatment decisions or to be used as a substitute for professional healthcare advice.

LibreView is not intended to be used for immediate clinical decision making, and is not intended to replace self-monitoring practices as advised by a physician.

Home users should consult a healthcare professional before making any medical interpretation and therapy adjustments from the information in the software.

Healthcare professionals should use information in the software in conjunction with other clinical information available to them.

When using the LibreLinkUp mobile app:

LibreLinkUp is not intended to be used by clinicians.

Patients should not rely on caregivers to notify them about low or high glucose.

Dosing decisions should not be made based on this device. The user should follow instructions on the continuous glucose monitoring system.

Any problems with the mobile device, NFC, wireless internet connection, mobile data connection, FreeStyle LibreLink, LibreLinkUp or LibreView could cause data to not be shared with caregivers, or delay transmission to caregivers.

LibreView (and thus LibreLinkUp) should be used only to give a secondary level of awareness and should not be expected to always communicate and transfer sensor glucose information.

Quality Management


Newyu services are considered a medical device in many global countries and regions. Alongside our security program, Newyu has achieved ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 13485 certification for our Quality Management Systems (QMS), covering our medical devices and related activities. ISO 13485 is a globally recognized quality standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. Our certification encompasses our product life-cycle, including design and development, production, storage and distribution, and support.


The United States maintains one of the world’s most robust set of legislation and guidance concerning medical devices. There are similarities to ISO 13485 but also many differences. As a US-based device manufacturer, Newyu maintains compliance with the US Quality System Regulations (QSR) and registers our establishment with the FDA annually.


Any serious injury or death that has occurred in relation to the device should be reported to the manufacturer and the competent authority of the Member State in which the user and/or patient is established.
