Why did my reminders stop working?

As long as you've turned your reminders ON and have your device open and app synced, you should be seeing reminders in their designated time. However, certain cleaning apps - like Clean Master, 360 Security, CM security, Fast Booster and similar - might be interfering with the app's proper function. While cleaning your device, these apps stop Any.do from sending you reminders to minimize data consumption. In order to fix this and make sure you're able to receive Any.do's reminder, please follow the steps below:

1. Go to your device settings

2. Tap on ‘Accessibility’

3. Under ‘Services’ turn off the cleaning app

4. Please restart your device (switch it off and back on)

5. Enter your Any.do app

You may also choose to remove Any.do from your Power Saving list, which will ensure that the app remains active in the background. To do this, please see the instructions below (per your device):
