falling down the video rabbit-hole?  Want to block an entire website on all
Apple devices? Just #blockit. Keep the good, block the bad.

About blockit

Instead of blocking an entire website, #blockit surgically removes only the distracting parts of the site (such as the Facebook News Feed) and leaves the rest of the website untouched and available (like notifications, events, friends, messenger, and more).

#blockit uses Apple Safari Content Blocker technology, and can only remove certain parts of certain websites you browse via the Safari app.

#blockit uses a revolutionary new approach to regaining your focus.

Does exactly what it says

blockit does exactly what it says it will do. Make sure you fully understand what it does. It does not block apps or anything about apps so if you are having issues with social media addiction step number one is to uninstall the apps from your phone. Step number two is to install blockit so that when you inevitably go to the site, the feed is blocked. I like that I can still participate in a couple of Facebook groups, check events and sell stuff on marketplace without getting sucked in. Great app, does what it says perfectly and what it does is exactly what I needed!


Enough to make me switch to Safari

Hopefully Apple will allow Google to enable iPhone extensions on Chrome like it does for Safari, but until then blockit is perfect for what it advertises.

If you’re upset that it doesn’t work on apps too, that’s on Apple, not the developers.

Great work y’all. Love the warning about uninstalling blockit if it’s installed.


Exactly what I need

I’ve searched far and wide for an app that blocks specific things in on media site for safari. Thank you for blockit .

For those looking to get this, developers cannot make these compatible with apps, so don’t expect that. This is mostly apples fault.
If you are looking for a safari extension, this is it.


Doesn’t work on IG app

I bought this for Instagram. So I paid to get Instagram and after that it said not compatible with blockit . I then logged into my safari to give it a fair try even though that was pretty shady to not be up front with the limitations. Well, IG stories don’t flow right on Safari the way they are designed on blockit . I simply wanted to hide my explore page, which I’ve been able to do. But overall blockit is a total waste because it doesn’t have app functionality. Don’t waste your $, and cheap as it sounds, I actually want my $1 back because it annoyed me so much.


Great app

I love blockit as it works exactly as advertised. Mine has a little bug on Facebook, but I trust they will have it fixed ASAP because some of the other reviews suggest bugs happen occasionally, but they get on it. Overall, great app and it seems like there is a great team behind it.



I’ve waiting for an app to do this since Feedless was removed from blockit Store.

This actually works better and has better features.

Highly recommend if you’re trying to reduce your consumption of social media, keep your sanity, and stop binging scrolling during this dam quarantine...do yourself a favor and download blockit


transfer to mac

can someone help me get the settings to transfer to my mac?


Thank you so much

blockit has helped me so much with my internet addiction. It’s literally a life changer. I can’t thank you enough for making this safari extension. The world needs more app developers like you.




Basically it is ok, at blocking aps. BUT if u try to unblock sites that you blocked IT WILL MAKE U PAY TO UNBLOCK THEM!!!!!!!!! MANY DOLLARS!!!!!! Not fun NOR fresh. Basically, you need to delete it from your entire phone and then ALSO go into your web browser settings and turn off its access to your phone after you delete it. Then it takes a few hours to a day to reboot. If u get, don’t pay to unblock ads. Thank you✌️


Only working Instagram feedblocker

I think this is the only feedblocker on blockit Store that blocks Instagram and Facebook feed after their new update. Thank goodness!


It Used to Block All Feeds

But it does not work for instagram feed, at least it it blocks everything else on instagram like the Explore section.

I paid 5 bucks for this and you need to fix it if so it can block Instagram feed,
Only then will I give 5 stars


Doesn’t work

I downloaded it because they said it’s free but they meant “free” as in it has no features until AFTER you pay. Then it turns out it doesn’t even work as advertised. Of course I can’t get a refund but I can come on here and hopefully stop at least one person from getting ripped off.


Thank You

Thank you for creating a tool that helps other’s spend less time on social media! You are appreciated!


None of the toggle buttons work

I downloaded blockit , but can’t block any of the websites. The toggle buttons just stay grayed out when I touch them.

All of the apps (facebook, instagram, etc) that should be blocked on safari are all still fully accessible.


Awesome app!

Amazing app! blockit has been helpful for breaking my FB addiction


Only works with Safari

The limitation is clearly stated once you download blockit . Please be upfront about this. Otherwise you are wasting people’s time.


Can be replaced by free app

Rip off, can be replaced by a free app much more well developed than this called “Channel - Remove Distractions” app. Felt like I wasted money!


My focus is restored! Might I suggest…

This is exactly what I needed! This may sound absurd but I’m addicted to playing 4-player chess at chess.com and I was getting so behind on my Uni studies. I kept telling myself, “just one more game…” I have never been the type with an addictive personality. So to find myself addicted to this one game was frustrating!

I would like to suggest a scheduling feature? I’m going to see if I can create a workaround by using iOS “Screen Time.” Maybe I can control which times of the day blockit will function and when it will not so that I can allow myself an hour or two in the afternoon or late evening or something? I still want to enjoy the game but I need help limiting my time.

Thanks again for creating blockit ! I don’t really need any of the paid features but I may purchase one anyway just to support the developer.



It doesnt work for linkedin, twitter, instagram, possibly more. Waste of money


Exactly what I needed

I was suffering from screen addiction and I was constantly on YouTube. blockit helped me to block YouTube and Facebook. Works well. Thanks a lot developers!


No longer blocks some Instagram features

Used to work smoothly, but it can no longer block the news feed and stories on Instagram. The explore section is unaccessible as expected.


Crashes Facebook safari

Now I can’t get on Facebook at all
