Frequently Asked Questions
Q1 : What is the reason my BiiB+ app is not tracking my run properly?
A1 : It happens to some Android devices' battery optimization process and could be fixed by following these simple steps;
Click "Option" (the 3 dots at the bottom right corner of BiiB+ app) > "Check Device" > Select your phone brand > Follow the displayed instructions.
