The possibility to pause logging is a low-tech solution to filter sensitive data. You can do it easily by simply unchecking the watcher module you want to pause in the aw-qt trayicon menu, this will stop the watcher until you check it again.
So, if you for example want to pause the logging of window titles:
- Click the ActivityWatch trayicon
- Uncheck ‘Modules -> aw-watcher-window’
