No. ViewClix accounts are only needed by family and friends that are on a frame's Share List. This is a ViewClix benefit versus other displays that require the senior to have an Amazon, Google or Facebook account.
A private Wi-Fi network is recommended.
A shared, facility Wi-Fi network may also be used but sometimes shared networks have limited performance which can decrease the quality and reliability of video calling. Here is a link to our shared network page with more information: https://www.viewclix.com/shared-network-info/
For locations where a private Wi-Fi network is not available, ViewClix recommends using a mobile data hotspot. Hotspot devices and low-cost data plans are available from most mobile service providers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc.). A small 1 GB data plan will enable about 100 new shared pictures and 90 minutes of ViewClix video calls per month.

ViewClix also includes an Ethernet jack that can be used with an Ethernet cable or with a HomePlug adapter.
