The My Profile page displays your Display Name, registration date, APN token, and lets you test your token and your connection.
To sign out of your account:

- Select Log out underneath the Registration Date.
In addition to displaying your Display Name, Registration Date, and APN token, you can use the My Profile screen to refresh your agent details and download updated scenarios (1), verify your APN token (2), enter Debug Mode (used by SightCall Support) (3), or Test your Connection (4).
Testing your connection can help troubleshoot support session quality. For more information, refer to How to perform a Network Quality Test in the Visual Support and SightCall apps?
Using the SightCall app as a guest on a session
You can use the SightCall app to request visual support or to participate as a guest.
A session invitation that requires an app will automatically use either the Visual Support app or the SightCall app so you can participate as a guest.
