To improve your productivity, you might have tried various website blocking tools to prevent yourself from accessing Facebook. But such tools completely block Facebook and do not let you check your new notification within the period that Facebook is blocked. Here to offer a more practical restriction on Facebook is a tool called Facebook Nanny.

restrict facebook usage

Facebook Nanny is a free to use browser extension for Google Chrome. The extension helps increase your productivity by restricting your access to Facebook in a practical way – you still get to view new notifications. If you do not have any new notifications, a notification appears on Facebook that reminds you of your work.

For new notifications, you get to spend 15 seconds on Facebook per notification. Also, access to messages and your profile is unrestricted thereby letting you freely update your status and communicate with colleagues.


  • A user-friendly browser extension.
  • Compatible with Google Chrome.
  • Restricts access to Facebook unless you have new notifications.
  • Does not restrict access to messages and profile.
