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 whitelisting is helpful.
By switching the mode in
Blocking to Whitelist you can enable this mode.
Blacklist and whitelist have completely different website lists, but only one can be enabled at a time. To get some of the best of both worlds, look into Whitelist Exceptions below.
The regular default blacklisting mode also offers Whitelist Exceptions, which allow you to whitelist 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).
Watch a tutorial on how to block websites and apps using Focus, including how to use whitelisting.
