Do Not Disturb alerts you to potential ‘Evil Maid’ attacks by notifying your iPhone of attempts to gain physical access your MacBook, perhaps without your consent or knowledge.
The companion Do Not Disturb macOS app (DND macOS) is offered as a free download to continually monitor your laptop for lid open events, as a precursor to these “Evil Maid” attacks.
With this iOS app (DND iOS), you will receive alerts on your iPhone and can respond to them in real time. The following remote response actions are supported:
* Use the MacBook camera to take a picture and return the image to your phone
* Initiate a hard shutdown to trigger enabled FileVault disk encryption
* Dismiss alerts on the iPhone and MacBook
… all with the touch of a button!
The DND iOS is free to download and includes a 7 day free trial with unlimited remote alerts and actions. Continued service requires an in-app subscription purchase (details below).

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent security tool, a must have!
DND is a must for anyone who owns both an iPhone and a Mac laptop computer — and who cares about the easily exploitable physical access security vulnerabilities of one’s Mac laptop. DND does exactly what it says it’ll do.
Sanctioned by Patrick, his work is well-served and honored as a part of this application. The nominal fee for annual service is well worth it to me to help incentivize further innovation by Patrick and Digita Security who have worked hard to produce a top-tier app, to maintain it, and to release future versions. That’s basic capitalism, folks. If you don’t like it, with all due respect, please do a quick search to see what “amazing” apps Cuba has put out lately. (None.)
I enjoyed reading the one star reviews from cheapskates who can’t read. $10 a year is nothing for advanced security. Would not be surprised if apple eventually bakes this in to Mac/iOS.
In the app description it says that it is a free download and one being able to utilize it.
It’s very misleading to not disclose in the very beginning that the app does not work without a monthly payment subscription!
It’s a very bad business model to mislead people like that!
I do not recommend nor approve of such terrible way of trying to mislead people in getting an expensive subscription plan!
Developer Response ,
We are sincerely sorry for the confusion. We never intended to mislead. In fact, our motivation for making the app free to download was quite the opposite. We wanted to give people the opportunity to download and trial the app, without any obligation to purchase -- and without needing to remember to cancel a subscription if it doesn't meet their needs (as typical up front subscription trials require). Of course, if this type of trial continues to lead to confusion, we will re-evaluate for a future release.
We are also very explicit in our documentation -- including the description on the app store that says, "The DND iOS is free to download and includes a 7 day free trial with unlimited remote alerts and actions. Continued service requires an in-app subscription purchase (details below)." We do, however, see now that this part of the description falls "below the expand button" -- so perhaps this has also contributed to the confusion. We will be sure to will rearrange at our next opportunity.
Please feel free to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions or concerns.
