Configure Samsung with Android 6.x

Some Samsung devices require special configuration in order for the tracking software to work properly. Please follow this easy and quick video tutorial carefully. However, if you have any difficulties, please contact us and we will help you!

Before you download the application it is required to disable Google Play Protect (as it will block the application from running). You can watch this video tutorial on how to disable Google Play Protect, or you can just follow the instructions below:

  • Open "Play Store" or "Google Play"
  • Click on the "Settings" icon (the three horizontal lines) in the upper left corner of the screen (left to the "Search for apps & games" placeholder text)
  • Then find and click on "Play Protect"
  • Then click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen
  • And then make sure both "Scan device for security threats" and "Improve harmful app detection" are disabled. That's it!

Now that Google Play Protect has been disabled, we can continue to downloading the app. After the app has been downloaded, install it but DO NOT OPEN it yet. When the app has been installed you will have two options - to close the installer and to directly open the app. Click "Done" to close the installer and continue with necessary configuration first.

Configure your device (phone/tablet) by following the instructions below (and only then go back to the app and open it to finish the installation procedure by entering your E-mail):

Go to "Settings" -> "Wi-Fi" -> click on the three dots icon (upper right corner of the screen) -> "Advanced"

Go to "Settings" -> "Data usage"

  • click on the three dots icon (upper right corner)
  • if "Turn off Restrict background data" exists, click on it

Go to "Settings" -> "Power saving" -> "Power saving mode"

  • if the power saving mode is not turned on, just temporarily, turn it on
  • now disable "Restrict all background data", if it was enabled

Go to "Settings" -> "Location"
