Veiling mode / A new phone mode

Veiling mode
Veiling mode

Veiling mode is a new mobile phone mode that can remind people to be self-aware and use media wisely. When this mode is turned on and the phone is used for up to an hour, a veil gradually builds up on the screen, eventually completely obscuring the page being viewed. Users can remove the veil with their fingers if they want to continue browsing. In veiling mode, the user stops using the phone for more than 10 minutes and next time opening the system will redefault. In this mode, the user sets Duration, Start time, End time, Mandatory and Veiling screen wallpaper. In veiling mode, the veil is just blocking the screen but answering the call.
