Thank you for using Freedom for Android! We are very excited to share it with you.
To get started, first download the Freedom app via Google Play. Once you install it, log in with your Freedom account email and password. Your Android device will then be added to your account.
The Freedom for Android app works by blocking both phone apps and websites of your choice. Freedom for Android can also block app notifications!
To block websites, apps. and app notifications, you will first need to enable permissions for the Freedom app. You will be prompted to enable these permissions as you use the app, but you can also set them up via the Settings screen.
To ensure website and app blocking works effectively, make sure "Block applications and websites" is enabled.
If your phone defaults to strict battery saver settings for all apps, you will need to make an exception for Freedom. For information on how to do this according to Android device type, please see Android Battery Optimization Settings.
Blocking with Usage Statistics
If you have an Amazon Kindle or an older device, you may have to block using usage statistics. To enable this permission, tap Allow next to Block with Usage Statistics. This is only necessary if the first method of blocking doesn't work for your device.
