  • (2021-07-14) Rahul Jain: I am using this extension for years and I like it. But still there is one very basic bug that's not fixed yet. When it counts down to 20 minutes, it doesn't consider any 20 seconds break and restarts next 20 min countdown right away. I thought of making the timer for 20 min 20 seconds to avoid this issue, but unfortunately it allows 5 min increments only, which I don't understand why! I am cutting 1 star for the bug, and another star to get attention (if I can). Hopefully you solve the issue and compel me to give you 5 stars which you really deserve :)
  • (2021-07-09) Bruce Lee: Great app but would be nice if there was a volume control option for the sounds. I love the option to choose different sounds but the ding was too loud for me
  • (2021-06-23) G8628 Lahiru: Add a 20 seconds timer when taking a break.
  • (2021-06-16) Ciix Ng: Honestly, this app is better than all the other eye protection reminder apps on the Chrome Store, customizable and comes with helpful tips prompts. Its use is great beyond the price we pay, it's completely free, some people should be less demanding and complaining. :)
  • (2021-05-15) Nandni Srivastava: Just Perfect!
  • (2021-04-25) Артур Асылгужин: Очень хорошее встроенное приложение для отдыха, мне помогает
  • (2021-04-18) KAYLA DAVIS: I really like this extension. I found out about it through a YouTube video and have used it for over a week now. I really like the eye exercises page and the ability to change how long I want to be staring at my screen. Since I am prone to migraines and have light sensitivity, I use this app daily. The reason I didn't give it five stars is because I wish the app would pause automatically when my Mac is sleeping. I constantly have to wake my Mac up to disable the app, and this will make me sometimes forget to re-enable it when I continue working. If the developer could fix that bit, this would be the perfect extension!
  • (2021-04-12) Ranjan C: Size > 5.5 MB? Such a simple apps and taking so much size? Even apps like Kaspersky or IDM takes less than 1 MB. It simply shows the quality of coding that you guys follow. Uninstalled.
  • (2021-04-10) Noushin Tarannum: It's awesome.It would be great if there was an option to increase the play sound.Is it possible?

  • (2020-04-15) Venator: Alright.
  • (2020-03-15) HuongThi Khong: Very useful for a screen person like me
  • (2020-02-24) Anoyint: Good, but would be better if the popup didn't scroll through the exercises automatically (it draws my eyes back to the page) and if it had a timer for looking away.
  • (2020-01-16) Anthony Foulfoin: It is useful but there is no alert once the 20 seconds have been reached, so I don't know when the break is over.
  • (2019-12-26) UDD: Hello! This app worked perfect for me. I'm an office worker and had dry eye problem at night. And now it's not happening. Wonderful! Thank you thank you thank you!
  • (2019-12-11) Valeriy Kundas: Crashes on Ubuntu. Is there anything to fix it?
  • (2019-11-07) Ajinkya Borade: I have set it for every 20 minutes with Nokia annoying sound with a message 5 pull ups. And it works like a charm. Refreshed me every 20min's :) Thanks for this app
  • (2019-08-09) Arush Verma: Sorry for 1 star but I want you to notice this review. This release is corrupted. Please do something about it.
  • (2019-07-02) Very good, very helpful for a developer it reminds me wherever screen I am
  • (2019-06-12) vidya sagar: It is working fine in Chrome installed in windows, but it crashes as soon as I try to open options in chrome of Ubuntu 18.04. It would be good to make it work fine in Ubuntu's chrome browser as well.
  • (2019-04-10) Borislav Madzharov: Works very good, will be perfect if on the exercises page has button which resets the counter and perhaps closes the exercises page too.
  • (2019-03-17) Sridhar Ratnakumar: Chrome reports that this extension may have been corrupted. Reparing doesn't get rid of it.
  • (2019-02-21) Nathan H: Would be great if everything worked properly. Unfortunately I could not get the desktop reminder to work and the sound is so so loud.
  • (2018-12-10) Ure Grit: WHY THE #$%& DOES THIS READ MY BROWSING HISTORY?!! I am removing this app because clearly the developer do not respect privacy.
  • (2018-11-29) A Google User: Great extension. For those who prefer different experience, Try "Babu Eye Protector" in chrome web store.
  • (2018-08-29) Deepak Kumar: Very Very helpful , Thank you
  • (2018-08-15) ka ja: Very good, recommended for all.
  • (2018-08-15) Never Lie: Thank you! it is really helpful.
  • (2018-08-14) Parmeshwar Changulpaye: Nice extension. this is what I want to reminde me in sometime to take a break!!!
  • (2018-06-10) Yimo Awanardo: Why do you need to read my browser history? It is beneficial to use I totally agree, but I still can't get why you need my browser history. Can't you disable your need for that option? This is certainly nowhere close to 5 stars unless you stop doing so because most of who use this app are probably quite smart and will notice that you use it. + This isn't a super duper app to make money from it by selling our private browsing history, just saying. If you need money, add a donation button, people are generous.
  • (2018-06-08) Caner Aydın: it says This extension may have been corrupted. when i click
  • (2018-06-05) Roger Chu: I have been using this for months now. It is very helpful.
  • (2018-05-18) Daniel Velez: I think the "Take a break" page should have a black background as opposed to the current white one because it would be easier on the eyes.
  • (2018-05-17) Michelle Christina: I love apps that remind me to act like a human, and this is one of them. My eyes are always strained from staring at the screen, and I can feel the difference (some relief) after using this.
  • (2018-05-08) Legendarysnake: can you make the messages slower? the messages are too fast when its break time. those 5 messages are too fast. im a slow reader and im having trouble with it.
  • (2018-04-24) rajesh bajjuri: Nice App, It will start working as soon you switch on your computer and keep you remind about eyes.
  • (2018-04-21) Julia Meriel: Thanks! This is awesome.
  • (2018-03-19) 尹星: Good for eyes.
  • (2018-02-01) Rashmi Jain: Things like this is always helpful for a person's health whose eyes are stucked on screen most of the time.
  • (2018-01-26) Ray Cessna: I like this extension.

  • (2020-11-03, v: Vincenzo: Why is 60 mins the max?
    Is it possible to extend the "take a break" from 60 to, lets say 90 and 120 minutes? Would be so cool. Every 60 minutes is a bit too often for me.

  • (2018-09-12, v: Greg Hamilton: Window zooms off-screen after timer runs: can't reach controls to re-size window
    App worked fine for a while but now after I take a break the screen zooms to a size where all controls spill off the top of my monitors. Have tried placing it on both monitors in various locations to no avail. The Zoom feature under the Window menu would help, but 'Zoom' is gray and not clickable for me. I'm using Chrome Version 69.0.3497.92 (Official Build) (64-bit) on a MacBook Pro running OS Sierra 10.12.6. Thanks!
  • (2018-08-16, v: Bubesh Kumar: popup location
    It would be much better if i am able to choose the location of the custom notification popup. Sometimes the notification gets missed from our view and it shows in right corner that too for wide monitors, the chance of missing is high
  • (2018-07-18, v: Пропадает приложение
    Добрый день! Приложение устанавливается, но при попытке нажать на глазик, пропадает. Потом когда я захожу на страницу приложение в Магазине, появляется ссылка Включить этот продукт. Нажимаю на нее - "глазик" справа опять повляется, но так же исчезает при нажатии
  • (2018-06-04, v: Arghya Pal: Notification should stay
    After ending the work time notification is showing but it should always display in the monitor or there should be one check box which when checked, it should display the notification always in the screen till the time user did not close it and when checkbox is not checked then it notification should display for few seconds or the current behavior.
  • (2018-04-17, v: inov8 ltd: Eye Care pop up Position
    Eyecare pop opens after every 20 minutes to look away ,suppose i was working with Chrome borwser, but after 5 minutes i switched to Excel Sheet and i started working with excel, suppose i spent 20 minuts with excel then i switched to skype and started to chat with a friend and i spent 20 minutes on skype, i spent total 50 minutes on screen, but the displayed EyeCare pop up was on browser screen right after 20 minutes but i worked for 50 minuts with computer and could not know when should i take rest because the pop up displayed only on browser screen and not on skype screen, , so is it possible that the displayed pop up display in "Bottom right Corner" like skype pop up (when someone onlines on skype, sype displays a pop up to tell the user that man 'XYZ' has bocome online, no matter which one application you are working on), so that we may know that 20 minutes has passed and user have to take a rest for 20 seconds
  • (2018-04-15, v: Ashley Anderson: Auto Disabled

  • (2018-03-28, v: Rakesh Soni: disabled
