With the onslaught of COVID-19, many people have been forced into a work from home environment that they would have never chosen to be in. This new work setup comes with many benefits that can be easily be outweighed by all the distractions that arise with online work. Lockdown is the ultimate tool to help keep users productive while on their computer whether at home or work. According to research done by Statista, out of the 2,000+ respondents, Social Media, Binge-watching, and Gaming were three out of the top five leading distractions while on a computer. Using the Windows host file to block websites and permission editing to restrict access of programs, Lockdown helps minimize the daily distractions of the internet in a lightweight solution. While there are other ways users can block distractions, no other product offers an all-in-one solution.
