How to register your vehicle with MyLincoln Mobile

To put a variety of premium services at your fingertips, download the updated MyLincolnTM Mobile application and register your vehicle. Benefits include real-time vehicle access and personalized client support – all in one, easy-to-use app for your smartphone. For added security, Lincoln Reserve vehicles (with available modem) must be authorized to enable access to MyLincoln Mobile’s full range of remote features. For additional app functionality details, see the MyLincoln Mobile overview. To start registering your vehicle, follow the steps below.

Note: MyLincoln Mobile app, compatible on select smartphone platforms, is available through a free download. The available embedded modem is included on Reserve Equipment group. Services included for 4 years. Text and data rates apply to usage. Currently available on all 2017 vehicles, the 2015 MKC and MKZ, and the 2016 MKC, MKX, and MKZ.

  • Log into the MyLincoln Mobile app on your smartphone, using your new Lincoln Owner account credentials.
    (The same username and password can also be used for Lincoln Owner and Lincoln Concierge accounts.)
