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 lockscreen-only mode, which only allows use of the lockscreen. You can still answer calls or call emergency numbers in lockscreen-only mode.
Usage based lockouts
Configure rules that will trigger an automatic lockout based on your device usage. With usage based lockouts enabled, total screen time, usage of apps, and number of unlocks will be monitored. You can set up usage rules that trigger a lockout based on total screen time, time spent in specific apps, number of times specific apps are opened, or number of device unlocks. Usage rules can be scheduled to only be enforced at certain times.
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.
Quickly start a one-time lockout for today. You can set a custom duration, lock until a certain clock time, or schedule a lockout for later on.
Each lockout has its own configurable options. They can be configure to turn on Do Not Disturb (DND), silence the ringer, or only begin the lockout at chosen physical locations. DND 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.
Configure additional options on the settings screen. You can choose a list of apps to exclude from total screen time, prevent changes to lockouts, show an emergency allowance button, show a paid exit button to end a lockout early, set up a password to enter the app, and much more.
The premium version allows an unlimited number of lockouts, limited to 3 in the free version. Please consider upgrading to premium to support future development!
