 As ste5an said, the short answer is no.  Access can't run directly on a phone (and most tablets for that matter).

 However you can run a terminal services server, then have a phone or tablet do a Remote Desktop Session to that and use the app.  The mobile device would need an internet connection to do so.

 If your looking for something to run directly on the phone, I would look at Power Apps:

 This is where Microsoft is heading with light weight application development.   Power Apps are a bit in their infancy now, but Microsoft is committing a lot of resources to it and I think you'll find it quite capable in the future.

 You also could develop a traditional phone app as well with xamarin

 but I'd really look to Power Apps if at all possible as Xamarin is strictly for phone app development.

Not really.

MS Access is Windows desktop database system. And Access Services are deprecated. So the only solution would be a RDP client.

If your Access "needs" are limited it would be "easy" to design a mobile web page and view your data from this...i had same case and it worked just fine....

Thanks for all of you, I do appreciate, if you have other methods please share in here.
Citrix is also a possibility.  Your Access app runs on the server and is displayed in a browser window.  I wouldn't want to use an Access app on a phone but maybe you have sharp eyes and tiny fingers.

I just want to have one form and check user ID to find who is registered and who is not
Then you'll have to create a web page using ASP or some other tool.  The table can be Jet/ACE if your ISP supports that database engine but you will be better off using MYSQL or SQL Server as the database and updating it overnight from your Access app.
