Create a blocklist

Ok great!  You want to block some sites.  Let's open https://freedom.to and make sure you're logged in. 

Once you have logged in, you can create a blocklist by clicking "Add a Blocklist ".

Add distracting websites and apps

First create a name for your new blocklist, then start adding the distracting websites you would like to block. We have added a few common website blocks for convenience.You can add blocks to your blocklist by clicking the '+' beside the name. Or you may remove currently selected blocks by clicking the check mark beside the name. 

 In addition you can add more websites to block by typing the URL in and clicking 'add block'. For more information on the URL's associated with commonly blocked websites click here:  How to add blocks to your blocklist

Finally you can  block the entire internet by adding 'Block Everything' to your blocklist. You can minimize the blocks menu by clicking on 'Add a Blocklist' again.

How to remove sites from your blocklist

To remove sites from your blocklist, first open your blocklist by clicking on it.

Once the blocklist is open, click on the green checkmark icon next to each block. This will take them off your blocklist immediately. 

Finally, save your blocklist, and you're good to go.
