Pausing feature for Android - LongRule - 12-16-2023

I really like the idea of the random password. 
I believe that making bad habits harder to start is a great way to maintain good discipline, as emphasized in the bestseller 'Atomic Habits'. 
From my experience, this approach has been more effective than completely blocking the habit, which caused several side effects for me.

That is why I am blocking some sites 24/7, but using pausing with random characters when I want to take a break. 
I find this method super effective. 
Therefore, I am eager to have the ability to use the pausing feature on my Android phone as well.

I would be very glad if you could incorporate this feature into the app. 
Your app is the best one among the self-discipline applications that I have used to date.
Thank you.
