Digital Clinics provide seniors with valuable learning opportunities and one-on-one assistance in using their mobile devices such as smartphones such as wi-fi hotspot connection, personalise accessibility tools on their devices, and adjust their phone settings and functions best suited to their needs. Seniors can also learn about applications and transactions relevant to their lifestyles like mobile payments, and participate in national initiatives like SGSecure. The Clinics cater to users of both iOS and Android devices.
