Focus Focus is a Mac app that helps you take back your productivity.

Password Protect Focus

Make your Focus settings hard to change by using Password Mode.

Focus is designed to help you stay productive. One of its best features is Password Mode. This locks your Focus settings, making it hard for you to change them on a whim. This way, you stick to your productivity goals.

How to Set Up Password Protection

  1. First, click the Focus icon on your menu bar at the top of your screen.
  2. Then click the Preferences icon that appears.
  3. Go to the General tab.
  4. Click Password Protect to activate Password Mode.
  5. You'll be asked to type in a password twice to confirm it's what you want.

Set a password to lock your Focus settings and prevent changes.

Now, each time you want to change a setting in Focus, you'll need to enter this password. This adds an extra step that makes you really think before changing your settings.

Share the Password with a Trusted Person

If you're worried you might cheat and disable the settings, you can give your password to a trusted friend or family member. This adds another layer of commitment and ensures you stay on track.

Add Blocked Sites When Password Protected

You can easily add new distracting sites to your block list even when Focus is in Password Mode. The catch? You'll need the password to take any sites off the list. This way, you make sure you're not making it too easy to get sidetracked.

Drag and Drop distracting websites onto the Focus menubar icon to quickly block them, even when Focus is active!

Great for Parental Control

Parents can use Password Mode to help their children stay focused while using the Internet. Once the settings are locked, kids can't easily change them, helping ensure a safe and productive online experience.

By setting up password protection, you're adding a robust layer of commitment to your productivity routine. It makes Focus not just a tool, but a true ally in achieving your goals.
