Freedom for ChromeOS and Linux is managed through our Chrome browser extension, and will allow you to use the website blocking functionality of Freedom on your computer via the extension.

To install Freedom on your Chromebook or Linux computer, download our Freedom Chrome extension from our Freedom downloads page -- just click the "Chromebook" or "Linux" tabs to install.

Using Freedom on ChromeOS and Linux

Click on the Freedom butterfly icon at the top right of your browser to bring up the login screen. Enter your email and password and click "log in".

When you log in to the Chrome extension, it will sync with your account.  You can see active sessions counting down for the device you are currently using.

Note: If you don't have any active sessions on your device, the extension will display "Freedom is ready."

Sessions are started and managed from your dashboard ( Click "Go to my dashboard" to start a block!

Note: The browser extension on ChromeOS and Linux allows you to block websites, but does not offer any in-app controls of our Mac and Windows app at this time.
