I figured out how to do a while ago, but simply can't remember- how do I block computer applications such as twitter, facebook, and messages in self control?

  • I have the same problem. Stayfocus'd is very nice for Chrome, but there simply isn't anything just as good for safari, so I end up using it to waste a lot of time. I want to block safari permanently so I can't waste any time with it.

You cannot block apps, as hinted in a github issue on their repository, only websites.

Onefocus is a similar app that seems to be able to do it. I have never tried it nor have any affiliation with it, so I cannot attest to its quality.


You just click the "edit blacklist" button add the websites. Pretty simple. enter image description here

  • The question is clear about blocking apps, not websites. This does not tell how to block the Messages app, for example.
