The Play Store version is old

Although old, the version in the Play Store should still work if your Android version is below 10. If you have Android 10 or above, though, it will crash on start up.

Unfortunately, Pluckeye in the Play Store isn't up to date because the Play Store now requires all apps with native code be 32-bit and 64-bit capable. The Pluckeye App does not have the 64-bit parts and adding them would take many hours. If you want to help make this happen, please let us know.

How to use it

On Android, Pluckeye is at present just a browser, and so it is typically used alongside an app locker or parental control software in which other browsers are disabled and only Pluckeye is permitted. Because app lockers usually use password protection to control administration, those seeking self-control either:

  • have a friend, parent, or other person administer the app locker

or

  • write down a long, random password on a piece of paper and put it in an inconvenient place, and/or put it into a into a box on https://lockbox.net/
