Accessibility Service

In order to effectively block you from using the addictive and distracting apps the "Digital Detox" app may ask you to enable its Accessibility Service if you decide to use the cheating protection features. We use this service only to block you from leaving an ongoing Detox without paying an accountability fee or using a quit code (the cheating). We do not use the service to collect any personal information.

Device Admin

If granted by the user, "Digital Detox" app may use the Device Administrator permission to (and only to) prevent users from cheating - make uninstalling of the app during an active Detox harder.

As much it pisses me off when the schedule detox starts and I can't do a task on my phone, I love it for that. It forces me to be truly focus on what task to do around the house and to relax. It gives you 3 short "emergency" access to your phone in case you didn't have an app set to allow so it forces you to use then wisely otherwise pay up to quit! This app has helped me so much

Love the concept, but it can be fairly glitchy. I wish there was a way to hide apps on the home screen during detox. A lot of system apps don't work properly unless the app is selected, but the settings functions aren't something I want cluttering up my home page. Another common problem is that apps don't open correctly. When I click on an app, it will often open the previous app rather than the one I selected. A test section would be useful to preview a detox and ensure it works like expected.

While running the app, it does most everything you would want it to. The only significant problem I've run into is this... When I make a call and i end up in a phone tree or an answering service that requires touchtone input, the app is blocking that keypad screen as soon add the call connects. I am unable to access the keypad to put input into the system. This is almost a killer because that same keypad input is required for voicemail. If this can be fixed, i think it will be a perfect 5 stars.
