The application records screenshots randomly 1x, 2x, or 3x every 10 minutes.
Screenshot resolution adjustments are not possible at this time.
The Mobile apps (iOS/Android) cannot record screenshots.
The Chrome app and extension have limitations with how well it tracks activity. It is limited to 15-second granularity. That means if you do something once every 15 seconds, you will have 100% activity.
The Chrome app and extension cannot show a breakdown of activity for the keyboard and mouse. The numbers will always match. This is a limitation of the information provided by the X screensaver API on Chrome.
