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 mode 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.
You can quickly start a one-time lockout for today. You may choose from one of the existing durations, or set your own custom duration. You may also lock until a certain clock time, or schedule a lockout for later today. To edit values, tap on the pencil icon. Once you have chosen a lockout mode, tap one of the red time cards to start the lockout. You will have 5 seconds to cancel.
This section displays a list of scheduled lockouts that repeat. To add a new one, tap on the plus button. You can choose the start and end time, the days of the week, and the lockout mode for each scheduled lockout. You may enable or disable each lockout without deleting it from the switch in the top right of the lockout card.
Usage based lockouts
Configure the rules that will start an automatic lockout based on your device usage. With usage based lockouts enabled, screen-on time and number of unlocks will be monitored. The first rule will begin a lockout whenever the screen-on time exceeds a specified time within a period of time. The second rule will begin a lockout whenever the unlock rate exceeds a specified rate within a period of time. These automatic lockouts will repeat if the limits are reached again. To choose your own values, tap on the the red highlighted numbers.
Configure additional options that apply to all lockouts. You can choose a list of apps to exclude from screen-on time, prevent changes to lockouts, show an emergency allowance button, or show a paid exit button to end a lockout early.
The Device Administrator permission is required so that to lock the screen during lockouts.
To uninstall on Android 7 and older, you must first toggle 'Device administrator' off from inside the app or from the system settings.
*The blocked/allowed apps modes are limited to 3 apps in the free version. Please upgrade to premium to fully unlock these features, remove ads, and support future development!
