The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (2023)

I find it hard to get work done while watching movies, visiting theme parks, or hanging out with my friends. So why do I think I can get work done online?

Yes, the internet is a place where work happens, but distractions are always a click away. You could say this is a matter of discipline, and it is, but the odds aren't in your favor. The internet is, at this point, a dopamine slot machine. The greatest minds of our generation are working around the clock to "increase engagement," which is a tech term that means "getting you to spend every waking moment scrolling and liking things." Trying to fight this with willpower alone is like bringing a water gun to a thermonuclear war.

Which is why there's no shame in using tools to help you build discipline. This is where distraction blocking software shines. Turn these focus apps on, and you can't open anything distracting—it won't work. Instead, you'll see a reminder that you set up software to block apps, and you'll be encouraged to get back to work. It's oddly liberating.

The 8 best focus apps

  • Freedom for blocking distractions on all your devices at once

  • Cold Turkey Blocker for scheduled system-wide blocking

  • LeechBlock NG for free browser-based website blocking

  • RescueTime for time tracking with built-in website blocking

  • Forest for motivating you to put your phone down

  • SelfControl for a nuclear option

  • Focus for a combination Pomodoro timer and distraction blocker

  • PawBlock for distraction blocking with cute animal pictures

What is a focus app?

How we evaluate and test apps

All of our best apps roundups are written by humans who've spent much of their careers using, testing, and writing about software. We spend dozens of hours researching and testing apps, using each app as it's intended to be used and evaluating it against the criteria we set for the category. We're never paid for placement in our articles from any app or for links to any site—we value the trust readers put in us to offer authentic evaluations of the categories and apps we review. For more details on our process, read the full rundown of how we select apps to feature on the Zapier blog.

I've written about productivity, in some form, since 2009, and have been very public about my personal productivity struggles over the years. Which is probably why I've tested just about every distraction blocker that's come out in that time, and relied on them to get things done for over a decade.

Don't confuse website blocker apps with parental control software—that's not what they're for. No, these tools are for you, and they hopefully help you build better habits. I researched this category extensively and considered dozens of options, then evaluated them against my criteria. I think that the best distraction blocking apps should do the following:

  • Block a list of websites and/or apps (determined by you)

  • Allow you to set a schedule and/or a timer

  • Be annoying (at the very least) to disable

  • Offer encouragement

In addition, because I'm thinking about productivity at work, I only considered apps that work on computers—there are no mobile-only tools here. With that, here's the focusing software I think works best.

Best focus app for blocking distractions on all your devices at once

Freedom (Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Chrome)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (1)

Most distraction blockers work only on whatever device you're using right now. Freedom can block distractions—both websites and apps—on all of your devices, simultaneously. No more blocking Instagram on your computer, only to immediately open it on your phone. If you start a session, your distractions are blocked everywhere.

(Video) 21 Apps that FORCE You to Be More Productive

Set up as many blocklists as you want, then start or schedule a session. There's a lockdown mode, which makes it impossible to edit your blocklists while a session is active—consider that if you're prone to working around your own good intentions. There are also optional focus sounds, which are basically ambient background noise from coffee shops or nature.

The downside: there's no long-term free version, only a limited trial that lets you run six distraction-free sessions. That should be enough time to figure out if it will work for you, though.

Freedom pricing: $3.33/month billed annually or $8.99/month billed monthly; $159.99 for a lifetime subscription

Best app blocker for scheduled system-wide blocking

Cold Turkey Blocker (Windows, macOS)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (2)

Cold Turkey Blocker is, in a word, customizable. Install this site-blocking app, and you can create lists of websites and desktop apps to block, then set a schedule for blocking. You could, for example, block social media and video sites during every work day. You could also block work apps, like Slack, when the work day ends. It's all up to you. Or, if you prefer, you can turn blocking on and off manually. There's even a mode called Frozen Turkey, which prevents you from accessing your computer entirely: turn on Frozen Turkey, and you won't be able to log in to your computer without it locking again.

Because this is a system-wide tool and not just a browser extension, you can't work around it by changing browsers. But it goes further than that—there are all kinds of settings that thwart future versions of yourself from working around your current intentions.

You can block the Time & Language settings, stopping you from working around a scheduled block by changing your computer's time. You can stop yourself from accessing the Chromium Task Manager, which you could, in theory, use to disable the blocking extension. You can even make it impossible to uninstall Cold Turkey Blocker until your scheduled blocking is complete. I could go on, but the basic point is that you can stop yourself from working around your block. Try this out if you're the self-sabotaging sort.

Cold Turkey pricing: $39 one-time purchase for Pro, which offers unlimited blocking, scheduling, and the ability to block desktop apps as well as websites

Best free browser-based website blocker

LeechBlock NG (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (3)

LeechBlock NG (the NG stands for "next generation") works on most major browsers, is free, and gives you a bunch of options for blocking distractions. You can make lists of sites to block, then restrict them in all kinds of ways.

You can schedule times for apps to be blocked outright, which is very straightforward. Alternatively, you can limit your time on distracting apps by setting up rules. For example: you could give yourself 20 minutes of YouTube time every day, or four minutes of Twitter every hour. You can get even more specific, if you want, combining time limits with a schedule—think five minutes of Instagram every hour between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Or, if you don't want to mess with schedules, you can trigger a one-off "lockdown" schedule.

It's a lot of power, particularly for a free tool, and you can even lock down the settings during block sessions if you want. The only downside: this is a browser extension, not an app, so you can work around it by switching browsers. If you can avoid that temptation, though, LeechBlock should work nicely.

LeechBlock pricing: Free

Best focus app for time tracking with built-in website blocking

RescueTime (Windows, macOS, Android, iPhone, iPad)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (4)

RescueTime isn't, primarily, a distraction blocker—it's one of the best time tracking apps. But it does include a distraction blocking feature called Focus Session, so you can block distractions using your time tracking history.

This works using data you're already providing RescueTime, which allows you to designate apps and websites into three categories: focus work, other work, and personal activities. These lists are pre-populated when you set up an account and you can also customize them.

During Focus Sessions, you can block everything but focus work or, if you prefer, just block personal activities. It's a great way to block distractions without having to build a separate block list, particularly if you're looking for a time tracking app anyway.

You can also use RescueTime to block distractions automatically using RescueTime's Zapier integrations. That way, you can do things like schedule a daily Focus Session or automatically start Focus Sessions when you start a timer in another app.

Best focus app for motivating you to put down your phone

Forest (Android, iOS, Chrome)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (9)

Your phone is a time machine, but not in a useful way. It's way too easy to pick it up and then notice a couple of hours have disappeared. Forest is an adorable app designed to help you with that.

The idea is simple: you open the app and say you want to plant a tree. Then you put your phone down. If you pick up your phone and switch to another app, your tree will die. Last 25 minutes, and your tree will live. Over time, you'll grow an entire forest of trees, a reminder of all the time you intentionally spent getting things done instead of scrolling through Twitter. Plus, if you use a paid version of the app, your focus time could help fund real trees via a partnership with Trees for the Future.

Forest also offers a Chrome extension, meaning you can grow trees on your computer as well. This one works more like the other apps in this list but with an option to load distracting sites if you want to. The downside to overriding the block: you'll have to deal with delightfully twisted copy. "This will kill your cute, little tree," you're warned. It gets worse: try to look at a distracting site and you're told, "your tree is dead." It's manipulative, sure, but it's manipulating you to spend your time wisely. Better than the reasons most apps manipulate you.

Forest pricing: Free on Chrome and Android, $1.99 for iPhone; Android Pro version costs $1.99, one-time, and offers syncing across devices and more tree varieties

Best focus app for a nuclear option for Mac users

SelfControl (Mac)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (10)

SelfControl looks spartan: there's a blocklist, a dial for setting how long your block period should be, and a start button. That's it. But it stands out for one key reason: it's impossible to undo.

Seriously, this app is hardcore. Closing the app does nothing—all of your distractions are still blocked. Deleting the app doesn't do anything, and neither does rebooting your computer. The only way to disable blocking, once you set the timer, is to reinstall macOS entirely (which would delete all of your apps, settings, and documents).

It is truly the nuclear option for blocking distractions—none of the other apps on this list come close to this level of permanence. If you're the sort of person who starts blocking, then caves, this app is for you.

SelfControl pricing: Free

Best combination distraction blocker and Pomodoro timer

Focus (macOS)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (11)

The basic idea with Pomodoro timers is that you work for 25 minutes before taking a five-minute break. Focus lets you do this while also blocking distractions during your work sessions.

This is a system-wide blocker that doesn't depend on browser extensions, meaning it's hard to work around once you start a work session. There are inspiring quotes when you try to visit a blocked site, which is a nice touch, but you can replace the quotes with whatever you want, if (for example) you'd rather be yelled at instead of inspired.

And it goes further: if you're a power user, you can write scripts to run at the beginning and end of every focus session. That opens up no end of customization possibilities, if you want to mess around with it. You could even trigger Zapier webhooks, allowing you to change your Slack status when you start a focus session or log your sessions in a spreadsheet.

Best distraction blocking app with cute animal pictures

PawBlock (Chrome, Firefox)

The 8 best apps to help you focus and block distractions in 2023 | Zapier (16)

PawBlock isn't nearly as customizable as the other browser-based option on this list, but it's got one thing going for it: animals. If you visit a distracting website, you'll see a cute animal who's disappointed with your choices. Decide to leave that site, and you'll see a happy animal. It's manipulative, yes, but it also works.

By default, there's a "soft" block, which shows you the sad animal picture but allows you to decide whether or not you want to visit the distracting site after you wait a certain number of seconds. This means you'll have to actively decide to scroll through Twitter, instead of doing so reflexively. You can change this to a hard block—which doesn't allow you to visit the distractions—if you'd rather remove temptations entirely. All of this adds up to a useful tool for changing your own habits, even if it's relatively easy to work around.

Plus: animal pictures. I really don't feel like I need to justify this any more than saying that.
