The age we live in can be considered the age of smartphones, because these amazing mobile devices have entered all aspects of our lives and have become one of our main and most important companions. Now, from the time we wake up to the time we go back to sleep, smartphones are with us and a large part of our daily lives are spent using them. All kinds of messaging apps, social networks and… have been produced along with fun and addictive games so that we do not have the ability to leave our phone and become more and more dependent on it every day. Of course, like any other addiction, smartphone addiction is harmful and destructive. Despite smartphones and the constant use of them, we can not achieve the mobility that our body needs, or we do not have enough time and energy for our work and education. Smartphones make our daily stress and anxiety much more and more severe, and this causes a variety of mental, physical and social disorders in us, so it is necessary to be sure to control how we use the phone. So that we can minimize its losses. Today we are at your service with an application from Google, which was created to help you do this and to give such control to users. Digital Wellbeing is an application for managing and controlling the use of smartphones and digital health recovery, for the Android operating system, which was developed by the software group Google LLC and published for free on Google Play. Using this program, you can see a complete picture of your digital habits and change the way you use the phone if necessary. With this app, you can see how often you use different apps, how many notifications you receive, how often you check your phone, or unlock your device. This information will help you understand how dependent you are on your phone and how much time you spend with it. Finally, the program provides you with tools to deal with this addiction and dependence.
