AppBlock's Chrome Extension: The Ultimate Productivity Boost for Web Browsers

The digital realm is vast and enthralling. But let's face it – it's equally distracting. Whether it's the rabbit hole of social media feeds, the allure of online shopping, or the temptation of clickbait articles, the internet has its fair share of productivity killers. Enter AppBlock's Chrome extension: your new sidekick in the battle against distractions.

Blocking Power Just Like the Mobile App

We've listened to your feedback and we're thrilled to announce that our Chrome extension now mirrors the blocking prowess of our mobile app. This means you can not only block distracting websites but also specific keywords that might lead you astray.

Imagine you're working on a project and the slightest mention of "sale" might lead you down a shopping spree. With keyword blocking, you can ensure those tempting shopping sites and advertisements remain out of sight. Or maybe you're studying and need to focus without any social media pop-ups. Simply add the relevant websites to your blocklist and voilà, no more unscheduled social media breaks!

One-Click Page Blocking:

We understand that while browsing, you might stumble upon distractions unexpectedly. To make your blocking experience seamless, we've introduced the one-click page blocking feature. Now, with just a single click, you can add the current page to any blocklist. No more going through a long process; just click, block, and continue with your focused work.


Automation is the name of the game in today's fast-paced world. Recognizing this, we've brought the beloved Scheduling feature from our mobile app to the Chrome extension. Now, you can automate your blocking sessions based on time, ensuring you have distraction-free periods precisely when you need them most. Whether it's setting aside focus hours for work or ensuring leisurely browsing in the evening, the Scheduling feature has got you covered.

With these additions, our Chrome extension is more equipped than ever to be your trusted ally in the fight against online distractions. Dive in, set your preferences, and experience a more efficient browsing session.

Streamlined and User-Friendly

Designed with simplicity and efficiency in mind, the extension is intuitive and easy to use. With just a few clicks, you can set up your blocking preferences, and dive into a distraction-free work session. And the best part? The settings are flexible, allowing you to customize your blocks according to your needs.

A Noteworthy Absence: Strict Mode

While the Chrome extension is packed with features, there's one notable absence: the Strict Mode. We believe in giving our users control, and we understand the unique dynamics of web browsing. While the Strict Mode is a favorite among our mobile app users, we're still refining how to best implement it on the browser without compromising user experience. Rest assured, we're working on it, and your feedback will be invaluable in this regard.

Final Thoughts

In today's digital age, the ability to focus is more than just a skill; it's a superpower. And with AppBlock's Chrome extension, you're now equipped with the right tools to harness that power. So, why wait? Boost your productivity, curb procrastination, and embrace efficient web browsing with AppBlock's Chrome extension.

Happy blocking and here's to enhanced productivity!
