Many people impulsively spend money online on apps and websites, buying things they don't actually need. Shopping can be an attractive way to fill the void of boredom or unhappiness, but it doesn't help to solve the underlying issues. Instead, it can lead to feelings of guilt or regret afterwards due to wasted money. It is better to take a step back, recognize the impulse, and find healthier ways to cope with the emotion.
And this is where my app one sec steps in: by adding friction in front of apps where you know you’re spending money from time to tome (online shopping, food delivery, in-app purchases), you give yourself time to reflect. And these 10 additional seconds can help change your mind – to save money, and to do something that’s gonna be healthy for you long-term!
