Detailed Overview
App Blocking Modes
There are three app blocking modes. The first mode blocks the chosen apps and allows the rest. The second mode allows the chosen apps and blocks the rest. The third and strictest mode only allows use of the lock-screen. You can still answer calls or call emergency numbers in this mode.

Website Blocking Modes
There are two website blocking modes. The first mode blocks the chosen URLs or URL keywords and allows the rest. The second mode allows the chosen URLs or URL keywords and blocks the rest.

Usage Based Lockouts
Usage based lockouts have rules that trigger automatic lockouts 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 are scheduled to be enforced at the chosen times.

Scheduled Lockouts
Scheduled lockouts occur at the chosen times regardless of usage.

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

Reducing notifications is important to help 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. Less time spent on your phone at night can also improve your sleep.

Premium Version
The premium version allows an unlimited number of lockouts, apps, websites, and locations. It allows enabling the option to prevent uninstallation and tampering. It also allows disabling the option to pay to end lockouts early or to reset passwords. 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 or websites are open, so that your chosen apps and websites can be blocked. Information provided by the Accessibility Service is not collected or shared in any way.

Lock Me Out does nothing when your app is already open prior to the block time if your app doesn't come from the Play Store, but is rather a web app. If you enable popups to display the detected app in the settings and yours displays both a popup with the app's name and then another popup that says Chrome once the app finishes loading, then you need to block both your app and Chrome for it to function correctly. Other than that, the app works great and the developer(s) are very responsive.

Hi Nick, where the app comes from doesn't matter. Some apps are actually just using Chrome and so that is what is detected. If you have any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to contact us again.

the best of the lockout apps I've tried. doesn't paywall essential features like others do. only wish it could block websites by themselves. it can block websites in addition to apps, but it needs an app to track screentime. but if you select the browser you're using to access the website, then you won't be able to use that browser for anything else once you're locked out. almost perfect

Please write to us for help Amanda! You can do so by using the in-app "Contact support" menu option or emailing lockmeout@teqtic.com. You can block websites without blocking apps, but not based on usage. A usage rule for time spent on websites will be coming in the future.

Most apps like this don't really do the job but Lock Me Out does. It's great for limiting social media time, keeping focused, and so much more. Would love if it would have more types of unlocks and support Samsung modes, but the flexibility it provides is definitely unparalleled in my experience. And the support is excellent which is something that's very important to me.
