Did you read the article? or were you distracted by not being present 😉

With airplane mode you cannot receive any calls or texts. This app will allow urgent calls through.

Wow! Love this

Everyone who knows R. Marazov knows that he is ahead of his times and has tremendous success in everything he does. He is amazing!

I downloaded the app and my phone warned me that this app can read all my messages and notifications. So I uninstalled it. Would appreciate clarification of this.

Pretty much every app out there can do the same. We just don’t read the fine print.

as someone who programs computers, i’d guess that it reads all the notifications in order so it could temporarily store to show them to you when present mode is turned off 🙂

i think its for the auto-reply feature within the app.

many apps can do the same, but it doesnt “read and store” your messages.

As the inventor of PresentMode, I assure you that my passion for privacy is ever present.

There is no way we can read any of your notifications.

I strive to make a Kiddush Hashem along the way, by building a useful and popular app, while holding true to the values of Torah. (Cherem D’Rabeinu Gershom is one such value)

Thank you for bringing up this valid and real concern.
