Motivational block pages

When Cold Turkey Blocker blocks a website, you'll see a motivational quote to remind you that you should be working.

The block works on Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari (on macOS), even if you use a VPN. Other unsupported browsers will be blocked completely.

Block websites

Use the included lists, or create your own by adding an unlimited number of websites. You can create up to six different lists that can be used interchangibly between timers and scheduled blocks.

Block the Internet with wildcards

Wildcards can be used to block the entire Internet by adding *.* to the block list. You can also use wildcards to block Google searches of unicorns: google.*/*q=*unicorns*

Block specific pages

If you'd still want to allow Facebook but block a specific page, like a Facebook profile, you can do this by adding: facebook.com/username

Exceptions and white listing

Websites can be added to the exceptions list if you'd like to access to them when they would otherwise be blocked. For example if reddit.com is blocked, but you still want to access a subreddit:

Start a timer

Pick when you'd like the block to end, then start the timer by flipping the switch. By default, Cold Turkey Blocker will lock the timer to prevent changes. You can change this behaviour for future timers in the 'Settings' tab.

There's no need to guess where you spend your time. Enable the statistics feature to keep track of your biggest time wasters. None of the data collected is sent off of your computer.

Refreshed dashboard

The new dashboard will keep track of active blocks, how long is left and when the next break is going to be. If you're using daily time limits, the remaining time will counted down here.

Schedule blocks

To help create a routine, you can set a weekly schedule that automatically repeats every week. By default, you won't be able to stop a scheduled block that already started, but this can be changed in the 'Settings' tab. While you're there, you can also lock the schedule until a certain date.


Set a password to prevent other users from viewing or changing your settings. You can also have a friend set the password so that they have control over your settings.

Block Applications

Not all distractions are online. You can use Cold Turkey Blocker to block anything from games to email clients. You can even block most Windows Store apps as well (for Windows 8 and above).

Daily time limits and breaks

Sprints are useful if you'd prefer to alternate the block on and off while you work to allow for breaks at predefined times. If you'd rather have more control over your breaks, daily time limits provide a daily allowance for items in your block list.

Start a timer with two clicks

Two click start

A timed block can quickly be started with only two clicks from the system menu icon.

Frozen Turkey

Frozen Turkey is a feature that helps you schedule time away from your computer. When activated, you'll be locked out and completely unable to use your computer (via Windows lock screen or a fullscreen app in macOS).
