Data stored on your device
One of the prime functions of BreakFree is to monitor the users phone usage and provide an addiction score. We also provide statistical graphs with regards to the users phone usage. This functionality requires the gathering and storing of phone usage data on your device. This data includes the users screen locks, screen unlocks and time spent on the phone. The addiction score calculated by the app is also stored on the device on a daily basis.
The app also offers certain scheduling tools to help the user stay away from his phone. These schedules also need to be stored on the device.
We do not store any personal or sensitive information such as phone numbers, passwords, contacts, etc.
