To check the details, just swipe left to see the number of minutes you spend on each app. A tap on the app name will give you a precise breakdown of the screen time, app launches and notifications.

Now, tap on Notification settings and toggle the switch off. However, the feature that gives a real jolt to people like me who are addicted to their cellphones sits under the Unlock tab. It tracks how often you unlock your phone and presents the data via a simple chart. ActionDash will display the time and length of the sessions. In short, this is the tab that shows you the harsh reality of digital addiction. The best thing about ActionDash is that it doesn't run a distractive timer on the homescreen or the status bar. It works silently in the background to track and collect relevant information.
Also, it doesn't keep nudging you about your screen-on time. It merely sends you a concise report card of your phone usage at the end of the day. So, it all depends on how you improve your habits in the long run.

Similar to most Android apps, you can also customize some of the settings like usage reports, the first day of the week, and others. To change the settings, tap on the three-dot icon at the upper-right corner and select Settings. Other than changing the time of the day or week, you can also choose to exclude the system apps and launchers, so that your usage statistics don't go haywire.
I wish that ActionDash would also let you exclude apps like Google Maps. Because when you use Maps for navigation , it miscalculates the screen-on time, as you can see from the screenshot below. The free version of ActionDash displays almost everything except some features like Dark Mode and full usage history which are available only through the paid version.
Also, upgrading to the paid version will also remove the ads. You can also ring, lock or wipe your phone from here. Ring : It rings your device at full volume for 5 minutes, even when your phone is on silent mode.
Lock : This option will allow to set or change a PIN or password on your device, as well as display a message on the locked screen. Wipe : This will perform a factory reset of the device. Please note that after you perform a wipe, you'll no longer be able to use Android Device Manager to locate the phone. Note : The above methods will not work if your phone has been reset.
Paid alternative : 1. Cerebus Anti Theft recommended If you are looking for a tracker with advanced capabilities, then Cerebus is the three headed beast you want to look at. The initial setup is quite similar to Google's Android Device Manager, but thats where the similarities end. Cerebus has ton of additional features not found on any free tracking software. Lock with code: Set a customized lock code that will appear each time someone tries to access the phone. Unlock: Turn off the lock code. Start alarm with message: Sets off a screeching alarm with a message of your choice see screenshots.
Display message: Displays a message of your choosing without any sound. Get call log: View the most recent calls made from your smartphone. Get SMS log: View all of the latest text messages. Call a phone: Select a number to call without the knowledge of the person who has your phone.
Record Audio: Record up to seconds of behind-the-scenes audio and then download an mp4 to your computer. Take Picture: Pin down the suspect by snapping a shot of his or her mug with the front-facing camera. It will pop up in your email inbox instantly. The good thing about Cerebus is that it doesn't necessarily require an always on internet connection to receive commands and you can control it by sending SMS codes.
If your phone is rooted, you can integrate it with your ROM and thus it can survive a factory reset!

Please note the Cerebus cannot protect your phone if it has been flashed. I'm not reviewing the app due to lack of time and there is already an excellent review and howto available on AndroidCentral Forums. Check it out. It costs 4. This is probably the best 4. If you need more help in setting up Cerebus, you can head over to their official help page or forums.
