I have my younger brother who spends too much time playing on Android Tablet, he wastes too much time and I've decided to give him only 1 hour a day but he's clever and uses the time in two shifts (30 minutes each), but I can actually tell him to use it once. Anyways, I want an app which will lock the phone after it's used for 30 minutes or 60 minutes automatically or shut down, whichever is possible.

He also uses extra time without me knowing (I can't always keep watching at him), so I want to eliminate everything and get some discipline to him.

It would be good if its linked with some website to track it but if not its fine, what I'm looking is an Android version of CyberCafePro (if possible) or anything that will auto lock the Android device after a certain amount of time and can be unlocked with a password or some sort of combination.

  • Far as I know locking the screen is not a privilege that a user app can have.
