Block distracting apps
Without relying on willpower

Discover how the average Padlock user reduces their screen time by 10 hours per week

Exclusively for iPhones

Padlock physically seperates you from your distractions.

Place Padlock somewhere out of the way, and your distracting apps follow it, instead of staying on your phone. In order to unlock your distractions you need to tap Padlock against your phone.

With Padlock, the "Key" to unlock your distracting apps is placed out of reach. The effort involved in retrieving Padlock greatly outweighs the desire to scroll in the moment. All of this while still being able to use all your useful apps like normal.

Distractions are blocked

The only way to access your locked apps is to spend effort going to where you stashed Padlock and tapping it against your phone.

Padlock's different because it actually works

Other screen time control apps can easily be bypassed, Padlock can't. So you can't start scrolling again in a moment of weakness.

Padlock's been so helpful for me when studying! I'm able to go out to the library and actually work away for hours at a time without getting distracted and starting to doomscroll.

It's so effective, I can't be bothered to to go downstairs to unlock my apps, especially when I'm in bed and wanting to fall asleep, so they just stay locked. I'm sleeping so much better now :)

I never realised how often I reached for my phone out of habit until I started using Padlock. It's been an eye-opener, and honestly It's really helped my mood since using it as i've got so much more free time to chill now
