Padlock makes bedtime scrolling a thing of the past

No more late nights, no more tired mornings.

Padlock takes your distracting apps,

and physically seperates you from them.

Scrolling for an hour is no longer as simple as reaching for your phone in a moment of weakness. 

Place Padlock somewhere out of the way, such as a kitchen cupboard, and your distracting apps stay with Padlock. Instead of just being an arms length away, to start scrolling you now need to get out of bed and tap Padlock against your phone.

With other methods, the "Key" to unlock your distracting apps is always present. With Padlock, that key 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.

Put Padlock somewhere out of the way and hard to get to.

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.

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
