If you found this page you must be looking for the differences between FocusMe and Freedom. Firstly let us make clear we are not Freedom users so cannot comment authoritatively on the product. We know it’s popular so they must be doing something right!

Some of our users have used both products and we can share what they said about why they chose FocusMe:


Best procrastination blocker and amazing developer! 10/10. Out of all the website/procrastination blockers which I tried (Freedom, ColdTurkey, HeyFocus, LeechblockNG, etc) this one is the only one which has everything! – Filip J. https://www.trustpilot.com/reviews/5e879f5f086b6409542f39bb


This is brilliant… It’s much more flexible an app that others I tried (Freedom and Cold Turkey most notably), the only one I can’t get around…John Cremlim https://www.trustpilot.com/reviews/5e98c130086b6409bc864790


I’ve used K9, Mobicip, Cold Turkey, Freedom, you name it. None of those products even come close to FocusMe. Stop wasting time and start making a change in your life today! I’m glad I did. – Terry G https://www.trustpilot.com/reviews/5cd580d6a843690a7cd115dc


Seeing the development, care and level of detail in this program, in addition to the resilience of the blocker itself… I’ve used Freedom and Cold Turkey and this is better… – Haider Bassam https://www.trustpilot.com/reviews/5ebc1ed825e5d20a88949ff5


I have used both “Freedom” and “FocusMe” and the flexibility of FocusMe and the amazing customer service have won me over. Indeed FocusMe has probably the best customer service of any software that I have used. – Aaron Mackay https://www.trustpilot.com/reviews/5ecc58c325e5d20a889f2c52


The “burnt ships” method for productivity is not new to me (constraining myself to force myself to work). I already figured how strong it is when I discovered the Freedom app and have been using it since. FocusMe is even better! It allowed me to do everything I could with the other app and a lot more. – Ahman Harb https://www.trustpilot.com/reviews/5ea17f08086b6409543e103c


I’ve used Freedom and Cold Turkey, but FocusMe beats both. This little program provides you with tailor-made internet blocking. It features options that make it completely impossible to bypass scheduled internet blocks. FocusMe supports to Zen-life: Less distractions and more focus. – Gern-Jan



* No internet connection necessary. Freedom does require that… Plus a company doesn’t need to know what’s on my block list. With FocusMe everything is nicely kept on my local computer. * Blocks without browser plugins or other tools. Freedom for instance blocks based on a proxy server, but it’s easy to disable. – Jos
