What is App Uninstall Protection

Opal lets you prevent yourself from uninstalling Opal or other apps while a session is active (works for all session difficulties). When enabled, you can't uninstall ANYΒ app from your phone unless you stop Opal blocking first; you may only hide apps from your home screen.


How to enable App Uninstall Protection

Navigate to Settings (accessible from the top right corner of your Profile tab) and enable "App Uninstall Protection" under "Blocking Preferences."


Uninstall Protection will be on by default when in a Deep Focus session

If you are in a Deep Focus session, App Uninstall Protection will be toggled on automatically, so you can't uninstall Opal and get around restrictions.

You will not be able to disable App Uninstall Protection when you are in a Deep Focus session.
