How do I check screen time on my Android device?
To check Screen Time on your Android phone or tablet, open the Settings app on your device, then select Digital Wellbeing and Parental Controls.
You will then see an overview of your screen time for today, you will see the total time you have spent on your device and also a breakdown of the time for the different applications.
You can also check how much time you’ve spent on your device and the different apps for the week. To do this, tap on the pie chart in the middle of the screen and you can then change your view from today to the whole week.
This then shows you the total screen time for the last seven days and also how much time you spent on each individual app during that period.
