What is Limit - Set Limits for Distracting Sites?

When you control your time on distracting websites, you’ll find you have far more time to focus on the things that matter most.

To use Limit, simply enter the websites you find distracting and choose a daily time limit. For example, you could limit yourself to ten minutes a day on Facebook, or half an hour a day on Duolingo.

When you approach your limit, Limit gently notifies you your time is almost up, so you can wrap up. And when you've reached your limit, you'll be directed to Freedom's calming Green Screen when you try to visit a limited website.

  • You can add or delete any website from the list of sites
  • Your time limit for each site is configurable, from 5 to 500 minutes
  • Limit comes pre-seeded with 10 distracting sites

Limit is a product of Freedom Labs, where we develop new tools to help you balance your relationship with technology. Like our other extensions, Limit is highly privacy-conscious.
