App blocker



  • Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering if there were an UBT app that allows the following:

    • Allows you to select apps to block at certain times of the day. For instance, don't allow the usage of Facebook from 9am to 6pm.
    • Once apps are scheduled to be blocked, the schedule cannot be turned off. I.e. If I scheduled to Facebook to be blocked from 9am to 6pm, I can't regain access to Facebook by simply turning off the blocking app or restarting the phone.

    There is an app on android that does this (simply called "block") but I was wondering if there were something equivalent for UBT. I checked the app store, but nothing stood out to me. Thanks in advance!



  • There are a number of us parents that would like to see the same thing. There is a sort of way to do this, but not really supported; ask on the ubports parents matrix group.

    However with changes incoming in the next OTA will break that. However however, the new Unity might provide a stable platform to implement this sort of feature.



  • Think this is the link to the parents group. It's well worth a look. #ubparents:matrix.org



  • Sounds good. Thanks everyone!

    Do you mind sharing a brief summary here for the benefit of those without matrix?



  • @doniks
    I appologize as I really don't recall, and never did try to do it. I just remember the conversation happening.



  • @doniks I wasn't able to access the matrix group either.
