Issue: Accessibility settings keep getting revoked on my Android device.

Issue: I have an active session running blocking websites and apps, and "Block Apps" is included in the session, but it's only blocking websites.

If the Freedom app on Android doesn't seem to be syncing properly or not working consistently, it's possible that your device's battery optimization settings are preventing it from working properly.

These settings can vary according to device, and some Android devices impose extra strict battery settings. This website is useful for finding ways to turn off battery optimization: We most frequently see battery optimization issues with the following Android devices:


To check whether Freedom has sufficient battery usage permissions, you can tap Settings > System Details. On this screen, "Battery Optimization" should say "Disabled." If it says "Enabled," try tapping Fix. This will take you to your device's battery settings, where you can change Freedom's battery settings to Not Optimized.

Still having trouble?

If the above screen says "disabled" but your blocks aren't working properly, our Freedom for Android Troubleshooting article offers a few suggestions!
