MyBSF, Notes and Lectures
How do I access MyBSF from the BSF app?
Select Support at the bottom the page, then “MyBSF.” When you tap the “MyBSF” tab, your browser will open to your MyBSF account. You can then access your account as your normally would.
Your BSF app login and MyBSF credentials are the same; no additional login is required. Keep in mind that the BSF app now includes lesson lectures and audio notes, eliminating the need to navigate to MyBSF for these services.
Can I download materials from MyBSF?
Yes, you will be able to download materials from MyBSF.org just as you would accessing MyBSF.org from a browser.
Do I still need internet connection if I access MyBSF from the app?
Are answers automatically synced between my devices?
Yes, the app does support synching between devices. When you sign in to the BSF app on a supported device, your questions and answers will be displayed.
Note: The previous Answer Transfer Tool is no longer required and has been removed from the app.
Can I print my answers from the app?
You can print both answers and lesson questions from the app. Simply navigate to a lesson, then tap the print icon at the top right of your screen.
Note: Questions and answers for all six days will be printed no matter which day is selected.
How are lesson answers stored for security?
When answers are entered they are encrypted and saved in the user’s account through a cloud-based service.
Can I move my CBSF answers to the BSF app?
The app no longer supports the transfer of answers from CBSF to the BSF app.
Can I change the Bible translation and language?
Our in-app Bible utilizes the NIV translation, which all BSF materials are based on. However, you can change the translation and language of the Bible as desired by going to Settings > Bible Viewer > In-App Bible. If you would like additional options, visit Settings > Bible Viewer > Website Bible.

Do MyBSF and BSF Online support links require internet access?
Can I remove downloaded files?
The BSF app stores your lessons and in-app Bibles in a “downloaded cache.” By removing these files, the app will automatically redownload them from our BSF support service.
Do I need to manually check for question updates?
BSF occasionally publishes updates to lessons and translation. For example, some lesson languages are not avaliable until closer to the time a lesson will be used in class.
The BSF app automatically checks for lesson updates daily. However, you can also manually check for updates in settings.
What happened to the Answer Transfer Tool?
Because answers are now saved in the user’s account and synch automatically between devices, there is no longer a need for this tool.
