How to make an Inverse Location Schedule

Do you want to stop yourself from checking on work apps when out of work? The following steps will help you set it up!

  • Go to the Blocking tab. In the Schedules section, tap + Add to create a new Schedule.
  • Select the apps and websites you want to block, what is blocked and name your schedule.
  • Select “Location” as your blocking condition and make sure location permission is granted. (If you have never made a location schedule before, you will now be asked for the missing permissions. Follow the written instructions to grant them).
  • Select the radius of the location you want your apps to be unblocked at or use the search in the top right corner to type the address you want to block.
  • Toggle the switch for “Inverse radius”.
  • Save.
  • Tap Create.

Optional: If you want the location schedule to remain active when location services are unavailable, you may set this in the AppBlock settings, More > Settings > Toggle the switch When Location unavailable on.

Note: The schedule will activate automatically when the condition is fulfilled. You do not need to manually activate it. It can however take a couple of minutes for AppBlock to receive your location and start the blocking. 

Note: In AppBlock versions 5.X, Schedules and Settings are found in the menu on the left.
