One mum in Texas, apparently tired of her kids ignoring her calls has created an app that is designed to lock their childrens phones if they ignore a parent's call. However, this app will be an EPIC FAIL.
First, Ignore No More is so TRIVIAL to defeat. Factory Data Reset will take care of that easy. Just make sure to back up important as those will also be wiped out when the phone is reset.
And given the comments in the review section for the app, the fact that a 20 year old GROWN MAN is being subject to this BULLLSHIT just TURNS MY STOMACH. So we are DOING something about it. Android phones can connect to VPN, forcing it to use the VPN for the data connection. Well, our VPN, part of the VPNGate.net network of VPN servers has been configured to BLOCK ignoremeapp.com and the entire IP range of Rackspace where it is hosted on, meaning that if you connect your phone to OUR VPN, Ignore No More will becomes USELESS as long as you remain logged on to our VPN. If you have Android 4.0 or higher, VPN is built in. You just need to know how to configure it to use and log on to a VPN.
VPN will be somewhere under "System", you just to poke around in there to find it, as the location will vary, depdending on your particular phone model. On some models, you may have to set your own screen lock before VPN can be used. This will not be affected by Ignore No More.
There are three different types of VPN connections our server supports, and LT2P, which Android supports is one of them. One you have found the settings page for a VPN connection on your particular phone, the IP sec key is "vpn", just the same is all as all other machines VPNGate.net. To specifically connect to our VPN, you will need to specify www.alphacrucisradio.org as the address, and the public VPN account is user:vpn password:vpn. Once set up right, and logged on, the Ignore No App should be shut down as long as you remain logged onto the VPN. Then entire Ignorenomore.com domain, as well as the Class C address space, that it is in, is also blocked, so the app should be effectively neutered as long as you remain logged on to our VPN. If it does somehow still connect, please send Email to
with the approximate time and date your phone was locked, so I can find any other IP address space or ports, that need to be blocked to prevent the app working on any phone connected to our VPN.
For Jr High and High School Students reading this, you will want to turn off WiFi, so your phone does not connect to your school network, becuase to Block BitTorrent, which many schools are doing now to avoid copyright lawsuits, does, unfortunately, also block some of the ports that LT2P VPN uses. BitTorrent cannot be blocked without totally blocking everythng on UDP ports 1024 and above, so be sure to turn off WiFi at school, or even at work, so your device will not connect to your school's or your employer's network.
This is the most BULLSHIT Android phone app we have EVER seen, and MUST sent to its WELL DESERVED demise. We envourage ALL Jr high, high school, and college networks to BLOCK Ignore No More. Blocking the Ignorenomoreapp.com domain as well as 166.78.24.* should do the job, so that it students MUST conncet their phones to your Wifi, Ignore Me More will be USELESS as long as they are on campus and connected to your network. We ADVOCATE that ALL Jr High, high school,, and college computer network admins BLOCK ignorenomoreapp.com and ALl address space in 166.78.24.* to ENSURE that Ignore No More WILL NOT WORK on any phones that connect to your network.
If you are an employer that hires jr high, high, or college students, you are ALSO encouraged to BLOCK Ignore No More on your staff Wifi. I know that McDonalds has a staff only Wifi, my wardriving hobby has recorded them. So I ENCOURAGE McDonalds managers to block Ignore No More on your eBos employee Wifi.
This BULLSHIT app MUST be rendered USELESS. This takes parental control TOO FAR, and could be abused, and certainly WILL be abused be "Tiger" parents. Countries like China, Iran, Pakistan, with national level firewalls, or a few others are also encouraged to BLOCK this app at the NATIONAL LEVEL and NOT allow in into your country. We encourge the Chinese govement to block this on the Great Firewall.
Kids are smarter than you give them credit for. There are other parental control apps that can be defeated with Factory Data Reset as well. Canary, Dinner Time App, and My Mobile Watchdog can all be killed with a factory data reset.
And here is an udate. Google has blown it out of their directory. They have not erased the actual page for it,but it is no longer in the main Google Play directory. Good on them!!!n Ignore no more now WELL on its way to a WELL DESERVED *DEATH*.
