Preliminary information

Before explaining to you how to see usage time on huawei, I have to give you some preliminary information about it.

First, you need to know that about Huawei the app cannot be installed Google digital wellbeing which is usually used on Android smartphones to monitor the time of use of the same. This impossibility is given by the fact that, starting from EMUI 10, the tool has been introduced on Huawei devices Digital management, which is natively included in the operating system and which takes care of the same task as the Google app.

As for Huawei smartphones updated to a lower version of EMUI 10, given the lack of the instrument Digital management and, also in this case, the inability to install the app Digital wellbeing of Google, it is necessary to make use of third-party tools, such as those I will tell you about further on throughout this tutorial. But let’s go in order and go into the details of all the procedures.

How to see daily usage time on Huawei

Having made the necessary premises regarding the tools that can be used on Huawei terminals to see the time of use of the same, let’s see together in detail how to proceed both as regards the default tool Digital management (on devices upgraded to EMUI 10) and third-party applications.

Third Party Applications


If you own a smartphone Huawei not upgradeable to EMUI 10, to see the time of use of the same you have to contact a third-party app.

Among the many available, I recommend you Digitox: a free app, with advertising banners, which is characterized by its simplified user interface and in Italian. The app allows you to view the usage statistics of your smartphone and also offers the possibility to set limits for the use of the device or applications.

To use it, first connect to the Play Store and download it by pressing the button Install. If you have a device without Google services, you can download the app through alternative stores.

If, on the other hand, you want to set an application usage limit, press thecrossed out circle icon and then tap the button (+), to select the app to restrict. Once this is done, after indicating the maximum usage time, confirm the operation by pressing the button Set to. You didn’t think it would be that easy, did you?
