What is Drunk Mode / Drunk Mode and what is it for

This company has spent more than a year developing a technology correctly called ‘drunk mode’ or ‘drunk mode’, which has been registered as a patent.

According to reports from portals dedicated to the subject, this function will allow users to continue to interact with their phones without exposing embarrassing situations that could damage their image.

This is how ‘drunk mode’ works

The way to do all this is quite simple. It is not a simple tool that blocks the whole connection of the phone or suddenly turns off or sends some kind of notification because all this, even without the influence of alcohol, it can be easily ignored by a user.

The ‘drunk mode’ app will go unnoticed and will make the user believe that their smartphone continues to function properly. The application will determine, through technology undisclosed, the person’s level of drunkenness, which can be predetermined in advance.

When the application discovers that the person who owns the cell phone he has gone from drinks, will block or delay the sending of messages, social media posts or voice messages that could be made from the mobile device.

Of course, this solution will mainly integrate with the messaging apps most commonly used, such as WhatsApp,Instagram, FacebookMessenger.

In short, the app can make you believe that you have sent a normal message, but the truth is that these are delayed 12 hours before sending them correctly. This will allow users who can cancel messages (or posts) if they regret it.

Also, “drunk mode” can temporarily disable access to the bank account you have set up.

How the app will know when someone is drunk or high on drinks

According to the Interesting Engineering portal, the advances in the patent of this application are remarkable and a mechanism has been revealed that will allow determining the state of intoxication. Through a series of “sobriety check questions,” the user will need to respond successfully to unlock ‘drunk mode’.

So far, it is one of the most popular tools in the smartphone app market in general. It differs from other platforms by the level of administration that it will provide compared to other applications, so it is likely to require more important and elevated permissions.
