Spending too much time on the internet can have a negative impact on your daily routine, studies and pending work. If you are addicted to any website like Facebook or Twitter etc, it will cause you to lose focus on your studies, assignments or office work as well. If you are looking for a way to cut down the time spent on different websites such as Facebook, Twitter or any other website, we have found a great utility, KeepMeOut, which can overcome this problem.
KeepMeOut is an excellent online service which prevents users to visit a specific website according to defined time interval. Using KeepMeOut, you can specify a website which you want to restrict and make a bookmark for it. Using the bookmark will prevent users from visiting the specified website too often, usually according to a set time interval. If you visit the website too much, it will show you a warning message regarding the website.
KeepMeOut is really simple and easy to use. All you have to do is specify the website, define the time limit (after which you will receive the warning) and click Submit.
You can click on Advanced Settings as well to further customize your preferences and include specific days and timings for applying restrictions. Set the warning to either everyday or weekdays and define the time frame in which the restrictions will be applied. Click on Submit when you are satisfied with the settings.
After you click Submit, it will redirect you to a page where you will be given a URL to bookmark. You can save it in your browser and use it when you want to visit the specified website.
Now, open Facebook or any other specified website using the bookmark link provided by KeepMeOut and it will show you the warning that you have visited the website once in the time specified. It will also show you the time after which you can open the website again along with general statistics like average daily visits and past months visits to that website along with the time when it was visited.
If you want to change the settings, click on the Change Settings button.
KeepMeOut is a must try utility especially for those who want to restrict the amount of time spent on specific website. However, there is one drawback, it will only work with the bookmark URL specified by KeepMeOut. Otherwise, if you directly go to the website it will not show any warning. But still, this service can help you become a bit organized and focus on your tasks rather than wasting time on different websites.
