Description from store LeechBlock NG (Next Generation) is a simple free productivity tool designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day. (You know: the ones that rhyme with 'Blue Cube', 'Space Hook', 'Sticky Media', 'Quitter', and the like.) All you need to do is specify which sites to block and when to block them. You can specify up to 30 sets of sites to block, with different times and days for each set. You can block sites within fixed time periods (e.g., between 9am and 5pm), after a time limit (e.g., allow up to 10 minutes in every hour), or with a combination of time periods and time limit (e.g., allow up to 10 minutes in every hour between 9am and 5pm). Additional features: • Lockdown: Block sites immediately for a specified duration. • Access control: Set a password or random access code for the options page, to slow you down in moments of weakness! • Delaying: Set a countdown to delay access to sites instead of completely blocking them. • Wildcards: Block a range of sites (e.g., *.somesite.com). • Exceptions: Whitelist sites you don't want to be blocked (e.g., +allowedsite.com).

  • (2024-03-20) JH L: Works wonderfully on Brave browser. LeechBlock allows multiple blocklists, each with their own date time schedules and configurations. Configurations include password bypass, 60-second bypass etc. Configurations can be synchronized to the cloud to multiple computers. The source code for this extension is open-source so the community can guard against spyware or data reselling. And it's all free!
  • (2024-03-19) SXLAIRE: Pretty great, but the one thing I've found a bit frustrating is that emails to the Leechblock team seem to never get responses. I messaged about 2 weeks ago without any response. I like the blocker a lot but with no support this does create some headaches that I worry won't get addressed.
  • (2023-11-15) Robert Tinsley: Thank you! Overcoming my youtube addiction because of your great program.
  • (2023-11-07) Alexander Nikolov: Its good but there is no option to block the extension site itself. Therefore I can simply deactivate it anytime.
  • (2023-11-03) Jake Canning: Truly one of the best developed extensions out there, and serves such a necessary purpose. Makes curbing digital addictions so much easier!
  • (2023-10-31) Santiago Alayza: I use it to block facebook, reddit, and twitter after 15 minutes. It doesn't have any pay version or ads or anything weird in it.
  • (2023-10-31) Ileska: How cool is this extension?
  • (2023-10-28) Ben Goldberger: תוסף מעולה! מאוד מועיל, ואפשר להגדיר כמעט כל דבר שאפשר לחשוב עליו
  • (2023-10-27) Laurence: Very valuable addition
  • (2023-10-25) Avi Aryan: extremely configurable blocker, also free, and has settings export feature
  • (2023-10-14) Joaquin Soria Dueñas: funciona bien, lo puedes configurar como gustes horas, etc demasiado, lo mejor esq no cuesta, al menos para mi que tengo problemas para concentrarme me funciona bien, ya depende de tu si quieres quitar el bloqueo despues, no me han pagado ni nada para escribir esto, solo me conmovio que cuando quise entrar a instagram, la pagina que bloquee, me aparecia La página a la que intenta acceder ha sido bloqueada por LeechBlock.

  • (2023-10-11) Maksim “Badacas” X: Install it, guys. Even if you don't set very hard password and hide it somewhere, the moment of hesitation between opening blocked site and removing block will save you many times, even if not everytime.
  • (2023-10-05) Michael Giorgis: This is the best one of these extensions! I used to use one that only allowed limiting access to X minutes a day, but this one allows me to additionally block distractions until the evening so I can focus, and block after bedtime so I can disconnect. Some of the options are a bit redundant and could be simplified, but everything is very well documented, so there's no confusion.
  • (2023-09-21) Rahul B: Its the best blocker i have used.
  • (2023-09-17) Stavros Skamagkis: Works perfectly and the customization options are many. We would like PIN protection of the app, so minors won't be able to easily disable the app's blocks.
  • (2023-09-16) Aishwar Pandey: it works best to avoid distraction after using advance option i cant even change settings so that feature is best there is only one way which by removing the extension if someone can help with this so i will not be able to distract as i am addicted to youtube/ott so i cant able to resist myself
  • (2023-09-11) Mile Zajkovski: Best one. The option to allow yourself few minutes break every hour is irreplaceable, and not found on other extensions.
  • (2023-09-02) this pcs: good and fast
  • (2023-08-27) Víctor Ez: good
  • (2023-08-26) Lisa Manske: This app has truly changed my life. No longer do I lose track of time while taking breaks to have fun. I am getting things done and able to move on with my day.
  • (2023-08-18) Abdul Waheed: Great, easy to use and very customizable.
  • (2023-08-15) mila: This extension helped me reduce the time I spent on time wasting websites! I usually just tried to use my willpower to stop using them but that is really hard so this extension was a good solution.
  • (2023-08-14) Grodie Fod: This extension is a great help

  • (2023-08-07) Eren Kaya: It's 100% useful damn, improved my learning journey thank you all devs!
  • (2023-08-02) LaQuan Wunderman: Am I the only one that doesn't work? after i installed it i wrote the scripts like below and i did save google.com ~word
  • (2023-07-31) Gaurav Singhal: The is perfect example of how something should work. Simple enough to use for basic functionality to keep distractions away. At the same time, if you want to have a complex set of rules for different days/times/websites/ it also provides that and those too are not complicated to use. Kudos to the team who created it.
  • (2023-07-29) Ulises R.: Cumple con lo que promete, y te permite hacer ajustes específicos. Me ha ayudado mucho a reducir las distracciones. Excelente.
  • (2023-07-29) Venus Chintala: Amazing extension to keep me away from distractions. I have tried other extensions before but I this works perfectly for me!
  • (2023-07-26) Philipp K.: It's simply the best extension I've ever used. Every feature I've ever wished for is included and works without issue. There are no loopholes that cannot be closed in the options. It has helped me tremendously with my productivity.
  • (2023-07-22) Robin Gude: Does exactly what it's supposed to do and has way more features than the average user needs. Perfect for focusing on the task at hand and getting rid of these pesky habits I've developed.
  • (2023-07-18) Zineddine Haboussi: effektiv und einfach
  • (2023-07-15) Akash V.: Have not tested it for any bug or security/privacy breach yet. Functionality wise, it is doing what it is made for. A good app to be away from distractions.
  • (2023-07-14) lolzhunter: so far its brilliant, compared to stayfocusd its leaps ahead, has different useful features that stayfocusd never had like time rollover, and when i tab into a different program it actually realises that and stops the timer instead of wasting 10 minutes and then stopping the timer like stayfocusd does, the UI is a bit harder to use and would like the timer to be contained within the extension BUT those are just small gripes, it actually works and doesnt break after 5 days with radio silence from the community discord, open source too which is always a positive thing
  • (2023-07-10) Oleksandr Pozden: Amazing! It's simple to use. It is has great functionality. And most important it is helpful! Thank you!
  • (2023-07-08) Samuel Chilcott: Fantastic extension. Simple to figure out, and many options. Excellent and simple to execute range of options, including if you want particular days, if you only want to block particular elements of sites, and whether you'd like an ovverride.
  • (2023-07-04) Reza Ghaleh: Simple elegant design. Best blocker so far I come across. If the pre populated list is added to it make it perfect. for example social network group, news, ...
  • (2023-06-23) J M: great tool
  • (2023-06-14) Felix Meyer: Best solution ever! Simply works and allows for high customisability.
  • (2023-06-13) Hhgfsl S,nsslr: boosted my productivity. extremely helpful, and is also easy to use.
  • (2023-06-13) Andrés A. Gómez U.: Excelente. Me sirvió para concentrarme mejor en mis quehaceres diarios sin distracciones.
  • (2023-06-13) Atmadeep Arya: Absolutely must have extension. All the options in a neat UI/UX . Works like charm. 5/5
  • (2023-06-12) MD Rahman: EXTREMELY helpful and definitive in its effects. It can work standalone but has versatile compatibility in conjunction with other blocking measures. I know this extension is not supposed to be used for the way I use it, stopping my addiction to a certain type of content (shut up), but it has changed my life. It really has. The focus I had lost for months is slowly returning. To the dev(s), whether you are aware or not, you are truly helping others. I am broke so the only thing I can pay is my gratitude; thank you, James Anderson!
  • (2023-06-09) Wilfredo Aguirre: Muy útil y completo. Permite diferentes filtros simultáneos, el contador es simple y no fastidia a la vista. Tiene muchas configuraciones, pero están bien organizadas.
  • (2023-06-07) john es: Really good! I like that I can connect my blocklists to Google Docs so I can update the block lists from a single source. Issue: When I reload a previously blocked and muted page that was blurred. The page becomes unblocked but it is still muted I can can't find a way to unmute it. This should be fixed. Right now, to solve this, I just duplicate the formerly blocked page and close the it.
  • (2023-06-02) Daniel DA: Muy bueno.
  • (2023-06-01) Van Anh Tha: Really help me pass important semester. Thanks DEV
  • (2023-05-23) rosa: best blocking software out there! i love the time-blocking features that are "premium" on other extensions. another great thing is the password feature especially to acces the settings since before this i always just turned it off when i wanted to slack off (i give mine to a friend so i have to ask them). i will recommend to all of my friends since this is what enabled me to finally learn discipline.
  • (2023-05-15) Thue Bank: ikke pent men kan næsten alt og er helt gratisk
  • (2023-05-14) Charles William: De todos os bloqueadores de anúncios que são recomendados para uso por serem "os melhores", sem dúvida este é ele. Gratuito, eficiente, agradável visualmente, cumpre o que permite sem charlatanismo e não te força a contribuir para o desenvolvimento e/ou manutenção. Apenas existe para ser perfeito e espera que os seus usuários o reconheçam por isso. Um modelo impecável do que uma verdadeira ferramenta deve ser.
