Learn how to setup allowed website blocks, which blocks everything by default and only allows the specified list, which is great if there's only a few pages you want to allow.

Allowed Sites

By default, Focus blocks all listed websites. But sometimes, the opposite is wanted---you want to only allow a handful of websites but block everything else. This is where allowed websites are helpful.

Remove all websites, and then add a single new website with a wildcard:  *

After that you can add any sites you want with a + before it. Review the screenshot below for an example.

Allowed Site Exceptions

The regular default blocked list mode also offers Allowed Site Exceptions, which allow you to allow only a few URLs. This is useful in cases where you want to block an entire website, except for a few pages (like all of Facebook except for your business page)
