StayFocusd increases your productivity by limiting the amount of time that you can spend on time-wasting websites.
You sit down at the computer, and you swear you'll be productive. Next thing you know, it's twelve hours later. You've checked your email, updated your Facebook status, blown through 200 pages of Reddit, read every article in your Twitter feed, looked up your favorite band on Wikipedia, vanity googled yourself, cyber-stalked your ex, browsed through all your high-school crushes' Instagram feeds, and lost a week's pay playing online poker.
What you haven't done is WORK.
StayFocusd is a productivity extension for Google Chrome that helps you stay focused on work by restricting the amount of time you can spend on time-wasting websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.
It's highly configurable, allowing you to block or allow entire sites, specific subdomains, specific paths, specific pages, even specific in-page content (videos, images, forms, etc).

StayFocusd does not automatically collect any personal information, nor does it track any information about which sites you have visited or for how long. It also does not transmit any of your data off your own computer. The lone exception is that it uses Google Sync to sync your Blocked Sites and Allowed Sites to your other computers. You can disable that feature from the Customize tab in the StayFocusd settings page.
If you contact StayFocusd via email, your email address and any personally identifiable information included in your email may be retained in StayFocusd's customer support inbox. This information will only be used for providing customer support at your request—your information will not be sold, distributed, or used by StayFocusd or any other party for any reason other than to resolve your support request.
When you install StayFocusd, it will ask you to grant a number of permissions, including "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit." This permission is required in order for StayFocusd to run on any site which you may visit—without this permission, StayFocusd would not be able to block websites. While the permission technically grants StayFocusd the ability to read and change data, the extension does not, in fact, do that in any way. None of your data is read, and none is changed. Period.
