It's a great idea, just what I needed. The issue is that just now, it randomly decided to lock my phone, for 1046 minutes. I hadn't set a timer for that, and the highest time I've set it to lock for is 300 minutes. 1046 minutes is 17 hours. I had reboot protection on, so I rebooted my phone, quickly went into system settings, logged in over and over as it locked, and removed Keep Me Out as a system admin. I like this app, but if it won't work reliably every single time, I can't use it.

So far I have no complaints whatsoever about this app, it does as it states it will, flawlessly. My only request would be if you had an option to select just certain apps you wish to be kept out of, text, messenger, email, Facebook, and even the play keep you from downloading new apps as a work around. I've got several apps I would like to use, but many more I'd block. Thanks!

Thanks for your kind feedback and 5-star review. For locking certain apps we would require additional development and time and we will target this in our upcoming releases. If you have any other suggestions or questions, please feel free to contact us at

A good experience but the locking after the restart is not working. The strong option is fantastic! I like it so much it is very clever and shows how the people care about the application. even if the design is not good the app has a very good concept and idea! Very intelligent!! also add an option in case someone made 24h that cannot be solved and his phone was lost forever!
