    What makes it different?

    Put 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.

    Why's it so effective?

    Other screen time control methods can easily be bypassed, Padlock can't. So there's no way to start scrolling again in a moment of weakness.


    A happy side effect of this is that you won't get "decision fatigue" by constantly trying to fight the urge to not procrastinate on your phone. That option simply won't be available to you.

    For example, if you always use your phone late at night, put Padlock downstairs. When you're comfortably tucked in to bed and that urge to check your phone appears, the last thing you want is to have to turn on all the lights and go downstairs. Maybe falling asleep is easier after all?
