Frequently Asked Questions

Any Northfield, Mount Hermon, or Northfield Mount Hermon alumni may use it! Your information is protected, and only NMH constituents may access it.

Search for “NMH” on the Apple App store or on Google Play and select “NMHConnect.”

Log in with your first and last name, and your email address. If the email address matches what we have on file, you’ll receive an authentication message in your email inbox. Be sure to open the email you receive on the mobile device you used to download the app. Then click “Verify” and it will grant you access to the app!

If you do not receive a confirmation email, it may mean that we do not have an email address on file for you, or we have a different one. If this is the case, please contact nmhconnect@nmhschool.org to give us your email address or to verify the email address we have on file.

Unless you indicate otherwise, all of your contact information will appear on the app; this includes name, street, city, state, country, phone number, email address, education, and place of employment. If you wish, you may customize your settings so that particular information will not be viewable by other constituents. If you would like to hide information in your profile, go to “My Profile,” then click on “Suggest an Update” at the bottom of your profile. Then, type in any updates you would like to make and click "Send." Please note that it may take up to two business days for changes to appear.

Type the name of the person you are seeking in the search box. If you are unsure of the spelling, you may type a few letters in the name, click “Search” and the app will pull a list of possible matches. You can also search by class year by typing a year into the search box.

Click on the Nearby tab in the sidebar navigation. A map will appear with pushpins indicating people in your area. Clicking on one of the pushpins will open that alum’s listing in the directory. You may also click the icon in the top right corner of the map to view a list of people nearby. To search for an alum in the map feature, click on the search icon on the bottom of the map. Are you traveling and looking to visit NMH people in other cities? You may search for users across the globe by entering any zip code, city, state, or country, and the map feature will show you that location along with people in that part of the world. You can also click the filter icon on the map page to narrow your results.

The app allows you to connect and network with other people using LinkedIn. When you first log in to the app, you will be asked if you would like to connect via LinkedIn. Once you are in the app, you can view information that people have included in their LinkedIn profiles along with the number of connections you have in common. Anything marked as private in LinkedIn remains private. If you are not connected to an alum, you will not see his/her private information or feed, nor will he/she be able to view yours. Don’t forget to list Northfield Mount Hermon in the education field in your LinkedIn profile, and be sure to join the "Northfield Mount Hermon Alumni" LinkedIn group!

If you opt not to immediately connect your LinkedIn account, you may do so at any time by going to Settings and clicking on “Manage Accounts.” Likewise, you may disconnect the account at any time.

Yes. From the Directory tab, click on the mail or phone icon at the top of someone’s profile to email or call. Phone calls may only be made from devices with phone capability.

Yes.  All traffic to the mobile app is encrypted using industry-standard SSL encryption.  This is the same type of encryption your online bank uses.

EverTrue hosts its computing platform and data with Amazon Web Services (AWS).  AWS provides a secure and reliable infrastructure used by 1,000’s of companies. 

EverTrue does not actively track your location in the background and does not store any history of locations detected. There are two times when EverTrue detects your current location to provide the full app experience: 

  • When you load the "Nearby" feature (the map that shows you who is nearby).  This feature requires the app to detect your location in order to orient the map. It will periodically update your location as long as this feature is open in the app.
  • When you share a photo or note with the community and choose to include your location with that photo/note. The app will detect your location once and attach it to the photo/note.

Dozens of secondary schools have the app and more are signing up each week. Included are Deerfield, Phillips Andover, Phillips Exeter, Hotchkiss, Milton, Emma Willard, Groton, Master’s, Suffield, Saint Paul’s, Pomfret, Berkshire, Kent, Milton, and Ethel Walker, as well as colleges such as Amherst, Pomona, Babson, Wesleyan University, Wheaton, and Brown.
