How does FocusMe work?
After you have configured it, FocusMe runs in the background and monitors which websites or applications you are using (information is only stored locally on your PC – it is never uploaded!)
When you visit a blocked site or application, FocusMe detects it, and can take action such as closing the website or application.
Is FocusMe safe to use?
Absolutely! FocusMe is 100% safe to use software. All our files are scanned with VirusTotal.
Do you record my browsing history?
FocusMe can track your browsing history and this is stored locally on your PC (never on our servers). You can turn off activity tracking if you wish in the main settings.
Can I block Applications with FocusMe?
Yes. FocusMe can block any application! Let us know if you have any difficulty to block something and we’ll show you how.
Can I time limit applications or websites at certain times and block them at others?
Yes. With FocusMe you can have multiple plans that are effective at the times you choose daily or weekly. Within each plan you can either block or time limit or limit launches. The possibilities really are endless!
How can I prevent FocusMe being uninstalled?
On Windows you just enable the setting ‘Protect Uninstall’. On macOS there is no need, as you cannot trash the app while it’s running. All you need to do is enable and password protect at least one plan then you are all set! On Android the ‘Protect Uninstall’ feature is only available in the version from us (it’s not allowed in the Google Play version due to Google’s requirements).
What platforms are supported?

Do you have an iPhone version?

How many devices can I use FocusMe on?
We allow up to 3 desktop computers (PC or macOS) and you can transfer these to new computers if you change them. Just contact us if you run out of activations. You get our Android app for free so this does not take up any of your device licences.
Can FocusMe sync plans between devices?
Unfortunately not right now but we are working on this feature and it should be available in the next few months.
Does FocusMe work through a proxy?
Yes! It does not matter if you use a proxy or not. FocusMe can block sites either by URL or by webpage title.

Does FocusMe require Administrator rights?
Not necessarily. The normal version of FocusMe does require an administrator to install it. But we also have a non-administrator version which can be used in case you do not have administrator rights.
