Here's how to block entire websites, specific parts of websites, or individual pages to help you work more efficiently.
Large companies go to great lengths to keep you hooked, making you click and scroll endlessly.
Take social media as an example; they are designed to constantly catch your eye with endless updates and posts to keep you addicted.
After you learn the basics on How to Block Websites on Mac, you can get into more details.
Focus works with all web browsers, and setting up the rules is a breeze.
The easiest way to block a website is to block its main address. For example, to block Facebook, you type in facebook.com.
To block only one page on a website, you type its full web address. For instance, to block just the Reddit Videos page, you would type https://www.reddit.com/r/videos.
This also blocks all the things under that Reddit Videos page.
If you want to block a smaller part of a website, like a mini-site or blog, you can do that too. Just type in its specific address, like golfwang.tumblr.com.
To block lots of smaller parts of a big website, you can use a wildcard like *.tumblr.com.
This blocks all mini-sites on Tumblr.
Focus also lets you choose websites you're allowed to visit.
By selecting Allow these websites, you tell Focus to block everything online.
Then you can add websites you want to keep, by adding them to the list.
