And if the insistence were too much, the proposal would reach other applications that, when activating the option, would go into restricted mode if the consumer decides to send other messages in different ways.

It should be noted that, in this framework, It is the user himself who must establish which are the functions of the mobile phone that he will limit. From the creative company, they pointed out that this “It is an interactive method and system for intelligent consumption.”
