Everyone knows that feeling when someone asks to use your phone but you’re scared they’ll go through your phone’s content. Once you give them your phone, they are able to go through everything important to you, including your messages, your photos and emails. Imagine yourself jogging and a child comes up to you and asks to use your phone so that they can find their mother. You give them your phone, and after they call their mother they go through your photos. This is obviously a privacy concern, and it’s a wonder why there isn’t a way to avoid this. Modern day computers have a feature so that when someone asks to use your computer, they can’t go through your personal files, they’re all hidden. You would think that with the way technology is advancing in this day and age, smartphones would have this feature also. That’s why Obstructer was developed, to offer a solution to this problem.

When you first open Obstructer, it prompts you to set it as the default launcher. This is to ensure that the home button is disabled. The user is locked into the app and nothing is accessible, besides the calling feature, of course. When that person is finished with their call, a password prompt opens. When the correct password is entered (“1234” is the default), Obstructer is disabled and your phone is returned back to normal. It is a simple app to use, but helpful in a lot of ways. The free version includes all of these features, and the paid version adds a messaging feature, so that someone can send a message to someone without being able to see your messages. A photo feature is coming soon, so that you’ll be able to show someone one photo without them being able to scroll through your whole photo gallery.






Features
• Simple dialer app that hides the notification bar, recent apps and disables the back button.
• Password protected so that the user is locked into the app (“1234” is the default).
• Small footprint
• Full version adds:
o Private messaging service so that your messages cannot be seen.
o Ad free experience.
o Coming soon: Photo viewer so that only one photo can be seen.
