Drunk user mode for smartphones won’t let you do anything stupid

How to *EASY* Install MODS WITH FRIENDS on Rainbow Six Siege

Chinese company Gree Electric Appliances has developed a mode «drunk user», which restricts access to some applications and settings of the smartphone while intoxicated.

Not only driving, but many other activities after a few drinks can lead to results that you can later regret. These include sending messages and calls from a mobile phone while intoxicated..

Drunk user mode for smartphones won't let you do anything stupid

It looks like Gree Electric Appliances programmers have found a way to solve this problem. The company has filed a patent application for the «drunk user» for smartphones, which, unlike existing applications, provides an integrated approach.

According to the description, when activated, the user selects applications, access to which will be limited or completely prohibited while intoxicated, and also sets the verification methods to disable the mode. You can fully use your smartphone again only after passing a pre-approved sobriety test.

The mode also makes it easier to interact with important functions so that the user can easily access them in any state..

It is not yet known when this mode will be released to the public outside of China, but manufacturers can develop their own similar solutions and integrate them by default..

Recall that last year, Apple filed a patent application for a technology that will automatically hide the contents of the device’s screen from prying eyes..
