How does QuickBooks Self-Employed automatic mileage tracking work?

Automatic mileage tracking logs all of your drives / trips so you can categorise them as Business or Personal with a simple swipe. 

Once you have enabled automatic mileage tracking, it runs continuously in the background, even when you're not using the app, so you never miss a trip.  

We use your location and motion data and only upload trips after you open QuickBooks Self-employed on your mobile device.
