In this article, we explain the ways to end or escape your Freedom block session, depending on your device type and whether you are using Locked Mode.


Ending a session when not in locked mode

There are a few ways you can end a block session when necessary if you don't have Locked Mode enabled.

End Session via Freedom Dashboard

  1. Log in to your Freedom dashboard - https://freedom.to/dashboard

  2. Click on the name of the session you would like to disable.

  3. Select Edit Session/Edit Schedule and the session editor will open up.

  4. Select End Session

  5. After your session is ended, select Sync Freedom in the Mac/Windows menu, or re-open the app on Android/iOS to ensure the blocks are removed.


End Session via mobile app (iOS and Android)

You can also end sessions in the Freedom app on your iOS or Android device when locked mode is not enabled.

  1. Open the Freedom app

  2. From the Today Screen, tap the session you want to end.

  3. Tap 'End Session' in the upper right corner

    Android:

iOS:

Note: Another way to escape a block session when locked mode is disabled is to log out of the mobile app. To log out, tap on the settings tab, then select “log out.” Please note that it might take a minute for your apps to regain connectivity.


Quitting or logging out of the app (Mac and Windows)

If you would like to be able to end a session by quitting the app on Mac or Windows, you'll first want to make sure Options > Locked Mode is not selected on the Freedom menu.

As long as that is deselected, you can exit sessions by quitting or logging out of the Freedom desktop app. For more information on desktop menu options, please see Windows Desktop Menu Options Explained or Mac Desktop Menu Options Explained.

Note: If you decide to quit in the middle of a session, the next time you reopen the app, the session will continue if it's still during the scheduled times.


Ending a session in locked mode

You are limited to a couple of options for ending an active session if you are in locked mode.

End Session via Freedom Dashboard

You may occasionally need to end a session when you are using locked mode. To accomplish this, we have a feature that allows you to end your block session, however, accounts are limited to 10 uses of this feature.

To take advantage of this feature, follow these steps.

  1. Log in to your Freedom dashboard - https://freedom.to/dashboard

  2. Find the block session you wish to end in your list of running sessions and click on it.

  3. Next, click on Edit Session/Edit Schedule and the session editor will open up.

  4. At the bottom of the form, you will see an End Session link.  Click that, and you will be asked to confirm that you want to end the session.

  5. After your session is ended, please select Sync Freedom in the Mac/Windows menu, or re-open the app on Android/iOS to ensure the blocks are removed.

If you don't want the ability to delete sessions, simply click Disable ability to end sessions and it will be turned off for your account.
