All about Data Usage


How much data does the Timeero app use?

The data usage of Timeero varies depending on how often you are clocking in and out and how many new GPS points need to be synced while driving. On average, the Timeero mobile apps use about 5% of what you use on Facebook or YouTube.


Background data

One way to reduce how much data you are using is to turn off background data. Background data refers to when an app is using data even if the app is not actively open on your phone. The Timeero app uses background data to sync your newest GPS locations to the server. If live tracking is not required, this can be turned off. However, if live tracking is required, this must stay on.


How can I reduce how much data the app uses?


On Android:

  1. Open the Settings app on your Android and tap Data usage.

  2. Scroll down specifically to the Timeero app and tap on it. Then tap on Restrict app background data.


This may or may not be available depending on the flavor of Android you are using.
