Simple Blocker Review

Simple Blocker is an easy to use Chrome extension which allows you to block websites. You can block specific subdomains (news.google.com) or entire websites (facebook.com) at the click of a button.

Simple Blocker was designed with students in mind, but can be beneficial to anyone who has a lot to do and seems to get distracted too easily. Are you spending too much time checking Facebook? Browsing Reddit when you should be writing a paper? In a few minutes, Simple Blocker could be blocking all those websites for you so you can focus on getting things done.

Features:
- Use the built in Sleep Timer to enable blocking for a set amount of time
- Lock yourself out of the options menu with a preset or random password
- Clean, simple user interface with an easy-to-use options menu
- Block an unlimited number of websites, subdomains, and pages

If you really have trouble focusing and want to resist the urge to disable Simple Blocker, you can even block the Chrome Extensions menu, as well as lock the Simple Blocker options menu with a password. This, in addition to allowing Simple Blocker in incognito mode, will make it very difficult to circumvent the blocking features, forcing you to focus on your work.
