The Full Lock requires that you download an "MDM profile" for your phone. MDM stands for Mobile Device Management and it allows a secure third party to prompt an action on your device. In this case, the third party is Flipd and it is remotely hiding your apps for you and then pushing them back onto your phone based on a schedule. Only you decide when this feature is activated and Flipd will only hide your apps if you have explicitly enabled the Full Lock.
Is all of this really necessary?
Currently, yes, because Apple doesn't allow a third party app to hide or restrict access to your phone without certain verified permissions. This is just the way we have to engineer the feature — we have to work with the iOS software the way it is. 🙄
You're safe with Flipd 😌
Our team is dedicated to helping you, and we will always be transparent about your privacy or concerns. You can also rest assured that Apple thoroughly reviews its apps before allowing any to be published, so the Full Lock Permissions are allowed by Apple.
