Detailed overview
Lockout mode
Each lockout has a lockout mode associated with it. The blocked apps mode allows you to choose a list of apps you want blocked during the lockout. The allowed apps mode allows you to choose a list of apps you want to allow during the lockout. The most strict is the lock screen only mode, which only allows use of the lock screen. You can still answer calls or call emergency numbers in lock screen only mode.

Usage based lockouts
Set up rules that will trigger an automatic lockout based on your device usage. You can set up usage rules based on time spent in chosen apps, total screen time, the number of times apps are opened, or the number of device unlocks. Usage rules can be scheduled to only be enforced at chosen times.

Scheduled lockouts
Set up lockouts that repeat regularly on a schedule. You can choose the start and end time, the days of the week, the lockout mode, and additional options for each scheduled lockout.

Lockout options
Each lockout has its own configurable options:
• Unlock periodically with regular built-in breaks
• Hide notifications from blocked apps
• Turn on Do Not Disturb (DND)
• Silence the ringer
• Block websites
• Only activate at chosen physical locations
• Allow a chosen payment to end the lockout early

Reducing notifications is important to helps us eliminate frequent interruptions, which is vital for our focus, productivity, and mental health. Having lockouts limited to specific physical locations can improve focus while at school, the gym, or anywhere else apps can be a distraction.

Premium version
The free version is limited to 4 lockouts, 6 blocked apps, 12 allowed apps, and 10 blocked websites. The premium version has no limitations. Please consider upgrading to support future development! We want everyone to conquer their addiction. If you cannot afford the premium version, please email us.

Sensitive permissions
The Accessibility Service permission is required to detect which apps are open, so that your chosen apps can be blocked. It is also required to detect which website is open, so that your chosen websites can be blocked. Information provided by the Accessibility Service is not collected or shared in any way.
