What is Protection?

Protection levels

When you set your schedule or start a timer, you will be able to choose your protection level:

  • Normal: you can take breaks and reconnect to apps and websites
  • Deep Focus: you can’t cancel or bypass the timerWe suggest using Deep Focus during times when you do not want to be disturbed by your distractions, such as during family gatherings, work sessions, etc.
  • Pomodoro: work and take breaks automatically following the Pomodoro technique (only for timer on iOS)

How to choose your protection level

To chose a protection leveladd a schedule (What is Schedule?), and then tap on “Protection”. You can switch from Normal to Deep Focus and then finish the rest of the session customization.
