Android - Installation and Activation on 11.0

The RescueTime Android app can be found at the Google Play store.

When you install and open the app, you will see a welcome screen. Press the green Continue button at the bottom to start the setup process.

To set up app tracking, tap on the green Enable button. 

Tracking will require additional permissions, which the app will help you set up in subsequent screens.

The permission request screen pops up, explaining how to set up App Usage access for RescueTime. Click the green Fix settings button to start the process.

You'll be sent to the System Settings "Usage data access" screen. Tap on the RescueTime entry.

Move the slider to the right to enable 'Allow usage tracking.'

Now hit the Back button twice to return to the RescueTime app. 

You will then see this screen, showing that 'Track Apps' has been enabled with a check mark. Click the green Continue button.

You will be taken to the sign-up screen. If you already have a RescueTime account, tap on the blue link at the top to sign in. 

If you do not have a RescueTime account, then you can create one by entering details into the address and password fields, and checking the box that indicates you agree to the privacy policy and terms of service.

After logging in or creating an account, you will be taken to the app Dashboard.

If you have an existing account with data, you will see that information on the Dashboard.  If you just created your account, it will take a few minutes for data to be displayed.

(NOTE: Due to Android's policy changes the feature to track individual websites in browsers has been disabled in versions of Android 9 Pie and newer.)
