Focus Firewall for Mac

Distraction blocker. Get hours of focus every day.

In English
Version 1.1.4

Focus Firewall overview

If you inadvertently spend hours on LinkedIn/YouTube/Twitter every day and use a Mac, this little app was designed for you.

Meet Focus Firewall – a distraction blocker app for Mac.

During your 9 to 5, distracting websites get blocked. Once it's set up, you don't have to think too much about it, it works mostly on autopilot.

Coworker sent a link and you really want to watch? Hit pause. It's totally okay to slack for a bit – as long as you don't get dragged into watching a second and a third video offered by the sneaky recommendation systems.

Compared to Screen Time and stricter blockers, this is more of a passive approach. You don't have to spend mental energy deciding time budgets per app. The app works on the background and adds an extra step between you and a distraction, which ends up being just enough friction to reduce your usage a little bit every day.

What’s new in version 1.1.4

  • Add "Blocked Today" website counter to menu bar, replacing "Focus time all-time".
  • Fixed issue where App Store update was unable to auto-update without the user manually closing the app.
  • Delay showing Mindful Nudge for some time after app launch or after computer unlocks or resumes from sleep.
  • Adjust cmd+Q behavior to quit the app instead of closing to better match the Mac expected experience.
  • Fixed a rare issue where focus time would not be accounted correctly when app quits suddenly.
