How to download and install RescueTime for MacOS

In order to track your websites and desktop apps, you'll need to download and install the RescueTime Assistant. RescueTime does not track activity directly from the website.

1. To get started, download the RescueTime Assistant. It's easy to do, just click here and hit the Download button for Mac.

After clicking the Download button, find the file named in the upper-right corner of your browser or in the lower-left corner and click on it. You can also find this file in your Download folder assuming that's where your default downloads go.

2. Double-click and it'll open RescueTime. You'll be prompted with a security measure from Mac. Click Open.
3. The Assistant will open from your menu bar, asking you to sign in. When you click the  Sign In button you’ll be taken to the RescueTime website to sign into your RescueTime account.
4. After signing in, click the  Activate Assistant button.
5. Once activated, your Assistant will appear when you click the RescueTime icon in your menu bar.

6. Lastly, drag RescueTime (most likely in your Download folder) to your Applications folder.

7. You can now delete the file.
