How to block iPhone Settings while in strict mode?

Interested in blocking the 'Settings' app during a Jomo' Session? We've got you covered!

If you're here, it's probably because you found some workarounds in the settings app to suspend the app blocking. Note that, 'Strict mode' in a session/condition makes it harder to avoid app blocking. But don't worry, we have some extra-solutions!

🔒 First Option: Lock the 'Settings' while your session is active

🎛️ Second Option: Lock the Screen Time Permission while your session is active

😈 Adjusting the punishment level

You can add other actions besides the redirection.

For example, you can automatically send a message to a friend or a family member if you open the Settings app while in strict mode.

You can also wrap the "Open Jomo" action within a "Repeat" block. This way, you'll continue to be redirected to Jomo for a variable delay, depending on the repeat count you set, after the initial redirection. This makes the action to open Settings more punitive.

Note that ALL screen time apps are concerned by this restriction, it's not directly linked to Jomo. 🙂
