That's why we actively listen to our users and continuously work to implement features that address their concerns and enhance their experience.

Profile Lock: Taking Control to the Next Level

This recent suggestion came from a user who relied on Control D to help overcome an addiction. This user expressed the need for an additional layer of control to reinforce their commitment to breaking free from unhealthy online habits. Inspired by their story, we developed Profile Lock, a powerful new feature that provides users with an extra level of accountability.

Understanding Profile Lock

Profile Lock allows users to lock their Profiles, adding an additional safeguard against unwanted changes. It is a simple yet effective tool that provides an added layer of control for users striving to overcome addictive online behaviors or maintain a healthy browsing environment.

Using Profile Lock

To enable Profile Lock, navigate to the Profile Options section for your desired profile in the Control D web application. You can activate Profile Lock with a simple toggle, and even add a personalized message to reinforce your commitment. Once Profile Lock is enabled, any attempts to modify the profile will prompt a notification displaying your personalized message, reminding you of your goals and prompting you to not unlock the profile unless you really, really mean it.
