Exit application from android hardware back button in phonegap

Is there a way to show a confirmation popup when you press the hardware back button in android devices to exit the phonegap/ionic application?

In the current status, my app keep going to the previous state upon clicking the back button.

Is there a way to exit the app when you press the back button no matter where you are on, in the application?

I found this piece of code but it did not seem to work:

$ionicPlatform.registerBackButtonAction(function() {
var confirmPopup = $ionicPopup.confirm({
title: 'Sign Out Confirm',
template: 'Are you sure you want to Logout?'
confirmPopup.then(function(res) {
if (res) {
$rootScope.rootScopeUserTransactionPassword = null;
} else {
console.log('You are not sure');
}, 100);


It is pretty simple dude. Just try this:

document.addEventListener('backbutton', function(event){
  event.preventDefault(); // EDIT; // exit the app

I hope it helps you.
