Step 4: Over here you’ll see an option called Sync your tracker. Don’t click on it yet. Because there is something you’ve got to do first.

What is that thing? Is it complicated? Not at all. It’s actually quite simple and won’t take any longer than a few seconds.

Alright, so go back to your dashboard. Once you’re at the dashboard, tap/click on the Account tap and then your tracker name.

Step 5: Now go back to the Advanced Settings and click on the Sync option. That’s it, the process is completed.
