Why a physical key?

Break Habit loop

By making your distracting apps further than just a click away, you break your unconscious habit loops. 

Physical barrier

With the addition of a physical key, we give you the option to create the barrier to distraction yourself: you can decide where to store the Unpluq key when you want to focus.

Conscious choice

By making the decision to access distracting apps a physical action, it becomes a conscious choice.

How it works

You choose which apps distract you. By detaching the Unpluq key from your phone, the launcher switches to Focus mode. In Focus mode, only non-distracting apps of your choice will be available and notifications of distracting apps will be blocked. Yet when you make the conscious decision to plug the Unpluq key back in, you will have the functionality of your entire phone, and your missed notifications will be shown to you.

Our vision

At Unpluq, we believe you should control technology, instead of technology controlling you.
