  • (2022-09-25) Luis G Velásquez: Not working for Twitter
  • (2022-09-23) Jason Paprika: Saves your life
  • (2022-09-19) Michell Ayala (mishelashala): It just works.
  • (2022-09-18) Kim Dupuis: This is my first time writing a review on an extension, and only because I feel like I can breathe the biggest sigh of relief. I use FB primarily for groups and often find myself in a cortisol-dopamine, scroll-addicted state. This has cleaned FB up for me and I feel less agitation already. Found out about this extension in a Reddit thread. THANK YOU!
  • (2022-09-16) Donald Arteaga: What can I say, it's a Godsend for my productivity! Now if only there was an Eradicator for my social media phone apps then life would be perfect! ^_^
  • (2022-09-14) Ali Ramadan: so good and so beneficial it helps us save our time in social media
  • (2022-08-30) Neil Robinson: Worked great for a couple of years. Now it's blocking Marketplace though, which is the one thing on FB that I use. Would be good to get a fix. Cheers
  • (2022-08-27) Peter Hershey: Simple and perfect.
  • (2022-08-25) Navaneeth P K: This was a life changing web application more me. Very minimal; no unnecessary features and options present.
  • (2022-08-23) Emily Hood: Love having this on my work computer, where I need to access pages I run on social media, but don't want to get sucked in to the drama of my facebook wall. :) Thanks!
  • (2022-08-19) Siim Karel Koger: LinkedIn is finally free of cringe ❤️
  • (2022-08-15) Francisco Argañaraz: Muy buena! En mí caso la utilizo en Facebook y me ayuda a no distraerme de lo que necesito hacer. A los desarrolladores de Facebook no les interesa el uso de tu tiempo, su objetivo es que pases la mayor cantidad de tiempo utilizando la plataforma. La extensión ayuda a combatir esto :)

  • (2022-08-02) Ábel Jánosi: Works great but on Youtube when I watch something, it shows the news feed next to the video, basically I start seeing the algorithm again. Please guys check this so the extension stays hermetic!

  • (2022-07-24) sunjoo lee: I really love News Feed Eradicator. It help me to save my time and to focus on my priority things. But currently, the instagram Eradicator doesn't work in my case. Youtube and Facebook are OK. So can you help me to reuse that instagram's function?
  • (2022-07-22) Amit Levy: Great!
  • (2022-07-22) Léo Davesne: If I'm honest, this extension saved my life: by not reading the feeds anymore, I could get detoxed from social media. Thanks a million!!
  • (2022-07-19) Katia Nikitina: Amazing tool. I am so grateful for the countless hours this app has saved me. I'm glad that I am able to stay connected, without the bs. Hoping that one day it expands to the Chrome browser for mobile.
  • (2022-07-19) Arnav Sinha: This is my favorite extension, it blocks the very worst time wasting aspect of social media sites. It used to work for Instagram but for me recently it is unable to block the explore page. Hope this gets fixed.
  • (2022-07-16) Angel ique: This app has prevented me from scrolling through twitter/facebook for endless hours so many times. It's a great app for productivity!

  • (2022-07-09) Ivan Herrera: It really helped me to see on what needs to be done and not mindlessly scroll through social media.
  • (2022-07-01) Eason 怡升 Chen: 完美,我還是能回訊息、發文與看通知,但不會再被社群媒體的各種推播干擾。就算真的想滑也能簡單設定時間。
  • (2022-07-01) Stéphanie McGuirt: A million stars. Thank you!
  • (2022-06-26) Joe Lucio: It does what it's supposed to do but when I need to interact on certain things like groups it interferes with commenting. Every time i begin to type it will cause the screen to scroll down. The same happens every time I hit the backspace key, it will scroll down. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled, turned off eradication but it still does the same thing. I want to turn off my newsfeed but use it for work to interact in groups and I can't get it back to how it was before.
  • (2022-06-26) Anthony Vanden Abeele: does a great job, eradicates the news feed just as it's called!
  • (2022-06-26) J M: The quotes +++ love it
  • (2022-06-26) Joel Crasta: Amazing tool for removing digital distractions
  • (2022-06-25) Harshita Ranjan: Thank you so much for this. It has been the most useful chrome extension. It saved my lots of time by eradicating YT homepage. Nothing can be better than this. Just too good!
  • (2022-06-25) Jan: I'm a long time News Feed Eradicator user. First i used it for Facebook and now I found out it's also for IG, YT etc.! Great extension, been saving me for years. ;)
  • (2022-06-25) Al Basha: I fu*king love the quotes
  • (2022-06-23) Louve Saint-Jeu: This saved me so much time and attention! I would love to have a version for Netflix and for cellphones!
  • (2022-06-18) George K: Excellent extension. Thanks!
  • (2022-06-14) Hamed Al-khateeb: The most fabulous thing that happened to chrome ever
  • (2022-06-09) Anna Cseh: Zseniális ötlet. Sokszor gondolkoztam a profil törlésen, drasztikus megoldáson, de van akivel csak itt tudom tartani a kapcsolatot, és a sulis információk is főleg itt cserélnek gazdát, így sose léptem meg, csak görgettem tovább mikor nem volt kedvem tanulni... Remélem így már jobb lesz.
  • (2022-06-08) Yang: The greatest extension that exists for Chrome (ad blockers come a close second).
  • (2022-06-06) Zbyněk Gazdík: Love to option to add custom quotes. It's a great way to actually read all of those inspirational quotes I stored in my notes app and immedeately forgot about.
  • (2022-06-06) Thalita Milan: Amazing work! Thanks for creating something that genuinely helps people. It's such a simple yet so effective tool! I am much more productive and definitely feeling less anxious.
