How to Set Time Limits on Facebook and Other Social Media

Facebook and other social media sites are devourers of time. Unfortunately, not everyone can forget about Facebook while working or studying only through willpower alone. Therefore, we suggest using productivity management tools to set time limits on Facebook and other sites. Such tools allow you to arrange visiting times to distracting websites easily.

How to Set Time Limits on Websites

HT Family Shield for home use and HT Task Vector for business use allow you to limit the time users spend on time-wasting sites and apps in a few clicks. After downloading and installing the program, you need just to specify how much time daily/hourly a user is allowed to spend on Facebook/other social media or any website you want to limit.

  1. Download and install the software.

  2. Go to Rules > Website Limits.
  3. Select Limit for the Social Networks category and other categories you don’t want your users to waste too much time on.
  4. Or add your websites to the Custom List.
  5. After it, set Time Resections and Schedule.
You can configure the appropriate amount of time users are allowed to spend on certain sites per hour/day or week.
The Social Networks category includes Facebook and dozens of popular social media sites.

The program is now silently working in the background, reliably protecting you from visiting distracting websites at the wrong time. If a user tries to visit Facebook and other social media outside of allowed hours or stays there too long, the program blocks them and shows a pop-up message explaining that access has been blocked.

How to Set Time Limits on Apps

  1. Go to Rules > App Blocking.
  2. Select Limit for the categories you don’t want your users to waste too much time on.

HT Family Shield and HT Task Vector keep a log of events and record sites, apps, search queries, etc. In this way, you can see which sites were visited and how much time your users spent on them. The software keeps computer usage statistics while limiting time-wasters and blocking unsuitable content.
