Note: The previous Answer Transfer Tool is no longer required but is still available if you choose to only save answers on your device or want to transfer answers from CBSF.

How are lesson answers stored for security?
Answers are encrypted and saved in the user’s account through a cloud-based service.

Yes, use the transfer tool by selecting settings, then advanced.
Can I change the Bible displayed translation and language?
You can change the display language of the Bible as desired by going to Settings > Display Language.
Our in-app Bible utilizes the NIV translation, which all BSF materials are based on. Want to request a specific translation be added to a future version of the app? Submit feedback here by clicking here.
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. Selecte Settings > Advanced > Check for Lesson Update.
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.
