<u>Detailed overview</u>
Lockout mode
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.

One-time lockout
You can 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 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.

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 to trigger a lockout based on total screen time, time spent in specific apps, number of times apps are opened, or number of device unlocks. They can be scheduled to only be enforced at certain times.

Scheduled lockouts
This section displays a list of lockouts that repeat on a schedule. You can choose the start and end time, the days of the week, and the lockout mode for each scheduled lockout.

Additional settings
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, and set up a password to enter the app.

<u>Premium version</u>
*The premium version allows choosing more than 5 apps for the blocked/allowed apps modes, as well as creating more than 5 lockouts. Please consider upgrading to premium to support future development!
