How to Check Screen Time on Samsung S10

Got a Samsung mobile and looking to know how much is your daily screen time. Well, you are on the right post to find the easy ways to check your screen time on Samsung S8, S9, or S10 or any other Samsung Galaxy device.

Screen time is an important metric that shows the amount of time you spend on your mobile screen. It is a good indicator of how heavy or light is your daily mobile usage. As a Samsung premium phone user, you have a few options to check your screen time.

It’s a good way of keeping a tab on how much time you spend on your mobile phone and making sure that you are not overdoing it. According to research from RescueTime, people generally spend a daily average of 3 hours and 15 minutes on their mobiles. This kind of usage can be a great time loss as it is almost 20% of the waking hours for most people.

So how to check screen time on your Samsung device? You can check screen time on Samsung S9 or S10 either by going to Digital Wellbeing & Parental Control option under Settings (below advanced features). You can also check screen time on Samsung by going to Battery Options.

The preferred way is by using the Digital Wellbeing & Parental Control Option which gives you a bird’s-eye view of digital habits on mobile- how much time you spend on your mobile and break up of the time spent on different apps. It further allows you to put a budget or a cap (called as Goal) on how much screen time you want to spend on mobile overall or on a particular app. A good way of self-control.

Google introduced this Digital Wellbeing feature on all android devices from Android 9 Pie or Android 10. It was with the intention to give you more control over your mobile usage and maintain the right balance.

Way 1: Check Screen Time using Digital Wellbeing & Parental Control on Samsung S8, S9 or S10

Let’s see the detailed steps on how to check screen time using the Digital Wellbeing

  • Go to Settings App by tapping on gear icon
  • Next scroll down and tap on “Digital Well Being & Parental” Controls
  • You will be shown dashboard of screen time on Samsung mobile for the day
  • It will also show a break up of screen time with list of apps consuming maximum time

You can further set goals or limits on your daily screen time by setting your Screen Time Goal. Another option available below is the App-Timer to set a time limit for a particular app. This can be of great help as mostly the Pareto rule would be applicable on your screen time as well i.e. 20% of the apps will be eating 80% of your time. Once you exhaust this limit, it automatically blocks the app and displays a notification that your time limit is exhausted for the day. You can use one of the default time limits or create your own custom time limit.

Another great option available under Digital Wellbeing & Parental Control is the Focus Mode. By turning on the Focus mode, you can limit your access to only a few selected apps for a set time period. This way you don’t get interrupted by every other app which gets greyed out during this focus period. You also have the option to customize the list of apps that are available to you during the Focus Mode.

Way 2: Check Screen time using the Battery Usage Option

Another Option to check your screen time is by going to the Battery Usage section. This again gives a breakup app-wise of active time on the app as well as the backend time consumed.

To access screen time using this option, follow the path below:

  • Go to Settings by tapping the gear icon
  • Scroll down to “Device Care” option
  • Next you will be showed battery health score. Tap on the battery icon -which is first option below the score
  • This will show the battery time available along with a list of apps along with battery percentage they consumed as well as the time spent on these apps.

By default, it shows the app usage time per week which you can change to the day. This is a good way of getting insight into which apps are draining your mobile battery along with the time you are spending on them.

Wrap Up

You have 2 easy ways of checking your screen time on your Samsung S8, S9, or S10. I personally prefer the Digital Wellbeing & Parental Control feature to not only know how much is my daily screen time but also set goals and restrict my mobile usage within my own defined limits.

Legal Validity of RC Book downloaded

Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has also issued an advisory for acceptance of Driving Licence, Registration Certificate or other documents in ‘electronic form’ presented through DigiLocker or mParivahan platform as valid under the Motor Vehicles Act 1988.  The traffic police is required to treat them at par with the certificates issued by the transport authorities.

The ministry had amended the Central Motor Vehicles Rules in November 2018 to allow documents such as RC, insurance, driving license (DL), PUC and others to be accepted in electronic form.

The fine for not carrying a valid registration certificate can go up to Rs. 2000 under the new laws. So it makes sense to have the DigiLocker App for ready availability of these documents.

It makes sense if you have the DigiLocker App on your mobile to quickly download the necessary documents in digital form.

But showing a photo of your driving license (DL) or registration certificate (RC) on your mobile phone to the traffic police or enforcing authority will not do. You need to show it with the DigiLocker or mParivahan app, as per the revised rules of Road Ministry.

As per some reports, for the electronic documents to be treated legally acceptable under the Information Technology Act, 2000, it is necessary that they are available on DigiLocker or mParivahan app carried by the user.

Other documents you can download from DigiLocker

  • Driving License
  • Vehicle Insurance Certificate
  • Vehicle Tax receipt

You can even upload documents in DigiLocker.

How to Download Uber Receipts [2022 Guide]

How to Download Uber Receipt

Uber is one of the most popular cab services across the world. If you are looking for a convenient way to download and print the receipts for your Uber rides, here is an easy guide to help you achieve this.

The Uber Receipt contains details like the break up of Uber Fare, date of the trip, starting and ending point (time and location), trip distance, driver name, and vehicle number.

Unfortunately, Uber does not give you a direct option to download your trip receipt on its mobile app.

However, you can easily download your Uber receipt by following the steps below.

How to Download Uber Receipts

  • Step 1- Go to riders.uber.com and log in with your registered email id/mobile no. and password
  • Step 2- Once you log in, click on your Profile (person icon) on the top right to open the menu
  • Step 3- Click on the option “My Trips” from the drop-down. It will show you a report of all your trips.
  • Step 4- Select any trip whose Uber Receipt you want to download by clicking plus icon next to the trip
  • Step 5- Click on the option “Details” for the selected trip
  • Step 6- On the next screen, click on “View Receipt”
  • Step 7- A pop-up opens giving you an option to “Print” or “Download PDF” for the receipt

Note that an Invoice is different from the Receipt. The Uber receipt carries more details about the trip such as the travel time, vehicle number, etc.

If you only want to save the Invoice without many details, you can use the option “Save Invoice”. This option downloads a PDF copy of your Uber Tax Invoice as per the statutory invoice format in your country.

The good thing about logging in at Uber.com is that it gives you a complete history report of all your trips. You can filter the report on the Current month, Last month, and even “All Trips”.

Especially, many times, you don’t remember the days you took an Uber. So this report is immensely helpful.

However, I would love to have more options like a filter on the “To “and “From” locations. Even some basic options like filtering for the year or last year or quarter are not available.

For a person who is frequently traveling on official purposes and using Uber on an almost daily basis, this can be very handy. This happens so many times when you are in a service-oriented job.

Another convenient way to download your Uber Receipt is from your emails. After every trip you take, Uber sends a trip receipt to your registered email id.

The email is sent from “Uber Receipts” and received from the Email Id “uber. your [email protected]. The subject line is user-friendly like “Your Sunday Afternoon trip with Uber”.

You can then simply print a copy of the email with the trip details. If you are using Windows 10 you get a default printer like Microsoft Print to PDF. You can simply print this email as a PDF using this printer option.

Printing mail is very easy if you are using Gmail on a desktop. It shows the “Print icon” on the left-hand top of the mail body. You can directly print only the mail body if you are using this option.

Now if you are accessing your email on an Android device, that too gives you an option. Follow the steps below:

Steps to download Uber Receipt from Gmail

  • Open the Gmail App on your Phone
  • Find the Uber mail by searching your inbox with the words “Uber Receipts”
  • Click on the mail and tap on the More option (3 dots)
  • Select the “Print” option from the drop-down
  • By clicking on print, you get an option to save the mail as a PDF
  • Click on the More icon (3 dots) on the mail and select the print option. It should give you an option to save the mail as a pdf.

If you don’t see Uber Mail in your inbox, it may be possible that your message has landed up in your spam or junk folder. If you find the receipts in spam, be sure to mark the email as “not spam”. Also, make sure to add Uber Id to your address book to ensure that Uber Receipts get delivered to your inbox.

If you are using iPhone or iPad, you can print the Uber Receipts mail by the steps below:

Steps to download Uber Receipts on iPhone mail

  • Open the iPhone Mail App
  • Find the Uber mail by searching your inbox with the words “Uber Receipts”
  • Click on the mail and tap on the reply icon (left-pointing arrow)and select the “Print” option
  • It opens the mail as a document
  • Pinch the document sideways like you are scrolling out
  • This enables the “Share icon” on the document. Click on it
  • You now get an option to “Save the File” as pdf

Note: In case you are not able to find the email receipt for a particular trip in your mailbox, you can log in at riders.uber.com. Go to the “My Trips” section by clicking on your profile name. Open the trip from the report and click on the Resend button.

BULK DOWNLOAD OF UBER RECEIPTS

While the above steps are easy to execute, there is no time-saving option to directly bulk download or print a list of Uber receipts. It would be really handy for frequent cab riders.

There is even a desktop app called “Ride Receipts” that was launched to help you download all your Uber Receipts for the year. This can be especially useful to track your business expenses for taxes and expense reports. I am yet to give it a try though.

This app description mentions it can download the Uber or Lyft receipts from Gmail/Google, Outlook/Microsoft, or any other email with IMAP support. The files will automatically organize themselves in your Documents folder.

In this way, you can easily download your uber receipts by the methods above.

IGL Background
IGL is a Joint Venture between GAIL and BPCL which was started in year 1998. It is a listed company in the Indian stock exchange.

It supplies PNG as well as CNG.

IGL has its operations spanning across different areas like NCT of Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad and Rewari. It has > 500 CNG stations, 11 lac + residential consumers and 4000 + industrial / commercial customers.

Why PNG?

Nowadays, more and more people are shifting from LPG Gas cylinder connection to PNG connection.

PNG  which stands for Piped Natural Gas, is a more cost effective and cleaner alternate gas.

PNG is mainly made up of methane with a small percentage of other hydrocarbons. Methane is known to be a more cleaner fuel.

Unlike gas cylinders which are more cumbersome to handle and need to be physically delivered every month to your home (as per your consumption), PNG supply to your place comes through a online supply system which consists of safety valves and regulators. It is a regular and uninterrupted connection.

This is more similar to having electricity or telephone connection, which is set-up once and then billed to you based on your consumption. The consumption is calculated based on your meter reading and billed to you.

Authorised IGL staff take the meter readings usually once every two months.

The bills are delivered at the customer’s residence. IGL also provide options of e-invoice which you can receive on your e-mail by registering for this facility on their website.

For the bill payments, you can make the payment online on their website or through any of the apps like Paytm, Phonepe etc.

If you have an existing LPG appliance, there are options to convert it to a PNG friendly one by calling the IGL technicians. Generally in such cases, you have to surrender your LPG connection to the respective oil company and get a refund of your security deposit amount. Since as per law, you cannot have both LPG and PNG connection. 

The PNG connection charges will vary depending upon the type of house and applicable installation fees at the time of registration. Here again, you generally need to deposit interest free refundable security deposit to get a PNG connection.
