How to block Netflix with FocusMe

The Blacklist tab should look like this:

Please note the Types of both items – “URL” for and “Title” for netflix. Then complete the rest of the plan such as when you want the plan to be active and whether to block or time limit etc.

See how productive you are now you have blocked Netflix.
