Stop yourself from using your iPhone.

How it works:
Phubber Lock provides a random passcode to use with the iPhone's Passcode Lock security feature. After a set time Phubber Lock displays the passcode on your Lock Screen. Enter this code in the "Enter Passcode" screen of the iPhone to gain access.

1) Press Key to generate a passcode or touch the input field to type in your own
2) Copy passcode to the clipboard
3) Set timer and Press Start
3) Navigate to Settings > General > Passcode Lock > Turn Passcode On
4) Make sure Simple Passcode is Off
5) Tap "Turn Passcode On"
6) Paste the copied passcode
7) Lock your iPhone

For detailed instructions on setting an alphanumeric passcode go to:

▨ Password Generator (switch between numbers or alphanumeric)
▨ Notification on Lock Screen
▨ Easy to use timer with ability to add additional time after starting
▨ Type in your own password (or have someone else do it)
▨ Use it to keep yourself out anything that requires a password.

* It is recommended you change "Require Passcode" to "Immediately"

* As a safety precaution the Notification will repeat at the set timer interval 10 times (e.g. 15 minute intervals 10 times) until you return to Phubber Lock and tap "Stop". So if you miss the notification or forget the password you'll have another opportunity.

* REMEMBER to turn off or change the passcode to a known one before locking the phone again.

* For extra security please back up your iPhone/iPad to your computer using iTunes with the Encryption box checked before using Phubber Lock.

* Your iPhone must be on to receive a notification. If iPhone is off when notification is scheduled, you will not receive it.

* Instructions on how to copy and paste:

* Phubber Lock does not lock your iPhone. You use the Phubber Lock generated passcode (without writing it down or memorizing it) with the iOS Passcode Lock feature. After the timer goes off, Phubber lock sends you a notification to your lock screen with the passcode. Use it to unlock the iPhone.

Works for me on iPhone

Finally, something to help me stop using my phone when I should be sleeping!

A couple of improvements would increase usage, I bet:
1. Is there any way to have it automatically set the code when you hit start? Because it's a royal pain to do so.
2. If so, have it automatically switch it back to your own password when you've unlocked it and hit Stop.
3. Add the ability to schedule it ahead & repeat so that I can set it to lock on, for example:
S,M,T,W 10pm–6am
Thu 11pm–8am
Fri None
Sat None

Then it would be PERFECT!

Didn't work

I followed the instructions but this did not lock my iPad.
