Distraction blocker for macOS
Reclaim your productivity by blocking distracting websites and applications, like Facebook, Reddit and Twitter. Stay on task and in flow to accomplish your best work!
Social media services like Facebook, Twitter and Reddit can be great, but getting stuff done can be hard when they're one click away.
Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to quickly create your ideal work environment on your computer?
In the real world, it's easy to close the door or put on some headphones. But blocking out distractions on a computer is harder. We socialize and entertain ourselves on the same computers where we work. Interruptions make it hard to get into a state of flow.
Focus is a website blocker that can block websites with precision in all major web browsers (like Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox).
This makes it easy to block sites like an entire domain or just the homepage. You can even use the powerful allowed sites (whitelist) feature to block the entire Internet (or just allow a few pages).
Focus is also a powerful application blocker and can block applications on your computer like Slack, Skype or distracting games like Fortnite.
Blocklists work at the operating system level don't require a browser extension to work—blocking even works in Incognito mode!
Getting back on track after you're distracted can be tricky, which is why Focus shows an inspirational quote to put you back in a productive mindset.
Dozens of inspiring quotes are shipped by default, but you can always customize and add your own to personalize your motivation.

Be more productive by scheduling your productivity ahead of time and building a habit. Focus makes it easy to setup daily, weekly or weekend schedules (and to enforce them).
If schedules aren't your thing, Focus has a pomodoro timer, a productivity technique of breaking work into small time limits to improve flow and mental agility.
And don't worry, if you need a break, Focus can allow up to a certain amount of time every day. Over time, using Focus this way helps you build your discipline and self control.
Sometimes procrastination creeps in and we need some extra help staying on task.
Focus can enforce schedules and timers with a lock mode, which means when they're running, they cannot be stopped.
Focus also offers password protection, requiring a password to change any preferences. This is for use with a trusted friend.
Be careful, these modes once engaged cannot be stopped!
