Fog of World can record your tracks in the background. It’s also recommended to do so since there is no need to download map data or redraw the fog overlay.

Before diving into device-specific settings, please make sure all the following conditions are satisfied.

  • The Location function is on
  • The recording mode is on (in Fog of World)
  • The GPS signal is good
  • For Android users. Make sure you don’t turn on the built-in “Battery Saver” mode. This mode would disable Location explicitly.

Now, here are some solutions for different systems in case your Fog of World doesn’t work in the background. You may need to reboot your device if you are not using an iOS device.

iOS

Settings > Fog of World > Location > Always

Samsung

Settings > Device maintenance > Battery > Unmonitored apps > Add apps > Fog of World

Huawei

Android 7: Settings > Battery > Close apps after screen locked > Fog of World > OFF

Android 8: Settings > Battery > App launch > Disable “Manage automatically” for Fog of World > Enables “Auto-launch”, “Secondary launch”, “Run in background”

OPPO

Settings > Battery > Fog of World > Switch OFF “Freeze background apps” and “Auto optimize when abnormal behaviour detected”

VIVO

Settings > Battery > High background power consumption > Find Fog of World and switch ON.
