You can use Trillian on your Apple device to chat with your Olark visitors while on the go. Trillian is available for iPhone and iPad. It is also available for Android

Before you log in

First, download Trillian on the App Store or the Google Play Store.

In order to use Trillian, you must first create a Trillian username to log into their service. You can either do this on the Trillian website, or by tapping the Sign up button on the app’s login screen.

Note: Your Trillian login is separate from your Olark login.

Step 7 Nice work, you are now logged in! It’s important to disable some auto-away features. Tap on the gear icon

Step 8 Tap on Settings.

Step 9 On this next screen, scroll down until you see Away on Close, and toggle it to off.

That is it! Tap to go back to your chat screen.

By default, you will now always be logged into Olark via Trillian. We only recommend that you are logged into Olark from one device at a time. If you want to use the chat console or log out of chat entirely, you can do the following.

  • Tap on the gear icon
  • Choose “IM Accounts”
  • Tap your Olark account and choose “Disconnect”
