Issue: Blocks not ending properly

Log out, and back in to the client

If you have completed a Freedom session, and your blocks have not ended properly, please take the following steps:

  1. Log out of your Freedom Desktop Client by selecting "Sign out"
  2. Quit the Freedom Desktop Client by selecting "Quit"
  3. Start the Freedom Desktop Client and log back in.

If this does not resolve the issue, let's follow these steps:

Update Network Settings

Freedom uses an on-device proxy to block the sites you've selected.  If you run into a problem with the Proxy, you can disable it by going to System Preferences -> Network -> Advanced -> Proxies and de-selecting Web Proxy and Secure Web Proxy.   Here's a screencast of the steps.

Delete and Reinstall

If worst comes to worst, we'll delete and reinstall the device following these steps.

  1. Log into your Freedom dashboard and delete the device.  
  2. Uninstall the device from your local computer following these instructions
  3. Reboot (if you're into that)
  4. Reinstall a fresh copy of Freedom from https://freedom.to/downloads
