Too easy to turn off and on!

I really like this extension, and I haven't used Instagram or YouTube in days! The only thing that I really don't like is that you can turn it off and on easily. I put this extension on my brother's computer so he would stop watching YouTube while doing school, and I tried to trick him by saying that the only way you could turn it off was by entering a password that only I had, but he caught on quickly, and while looking at his history, found out that he has been watching gaming videos and not doing school.
My recommendation is that when first use it, you have to enter a (4 digit) password. Then next time you want to turn it off, you have to enter the password. I don't think you would need the password to turn the blocker on though.👍🏽

Closes Chrome

Hi, Its Uzair. I really like this app but I am facing an issue. Let's say I have just one tab open and I try to open a social media site, what it does it close the tab and of course when there are no tabs left, chrome closes completely. Is there way that it closes a tab and open a homepage instead of completely closing the chrome?
Regards

Can't open Chrome after this...

Love the idea, but I had a big problem.
Assuming mine is working properly, and the extension closes the tab when you attempt to go to a social media site- this happened to me:

I was testing it and I have chrome set to open the last page(s) visited. Since twitter was the last I tried to visit, it would open and immediately close! Seems odd because I thought the extension required re-enabling every time you opened the browser.
But perhaps it thinks the last page was "closing down", dunno- I'm not a programmer but that happened to me.

Fortunately I have several computers and went to a different machine and the extension wasn't there yet, so I removed it.

Easy work around- just open to a consistent home page. Don't know if I want to use it in a work environment though, it would be bad if it propagated to all computers and I couldn't open the browser.

JUST CHECKED-- Bad news is- apparently it is not using the extension to close down immediately, because after removing the extension and adding a plain start up page, I went back tot he first computer and it is still shutting down as soon as it starts. :(

Some adivices

Hi, it is a great tool that helps me increase my efficiency. However, I am a user from China, so, can you add some chinese social media website in your tool? If you want, I can send you a list which maintain some of chinese social media website.

Timer

Hi, I have recently installed your extension and it works great! Just wondering if there could be a timer option? For example, setting a 30min timer would allow me to smash out as much work within that time frame then like a 5min social media scroll before blocking again.

Include quora and/or custom urls?

Really nice extension, but I'm missing an option to block Quora, or, even better, since people waste time on different things, just a text field where one could enter a list of custom urls to block.

Include

As several have said before, Instagram would be good to include in the block. Also sites like messenger.com (aka Facebook messengers own webpage) it's like a gateway drug
