How to add my own websites/domains

At this stage, you can't directly enter your own domain for Opal to block. However, we have two solutions: you should be able to find and add all apps and most websites to your Opal block list, or you can use Whitelist.

Step 1: Find websites/Domains You Visit Frequently in the pre-made list

When you select Apps and Websites to add to an App Group (see how on this article), you will be able to select from a pre-made list of Apps and Websites. This list is generated by Apple's Screen Time, and we (Opal) do not have control over what is included.

However, this is what should be included in the list:

- All Apps installed on your phone,

- Websites you use frequently.

Apps and Websites are categorized by Apple. You need to expand the categories in order to find specific apps/websites.

For example Facebook will be in the Social category. If you want to block the Facebook Website, add

  • facebook.com
  • any other Facebook related domains that you see, like app.facebook.com

Websites or Apps can also be in the Other category, so make sure to check there.

If you can't find the website or domain you want to block there, try:

Step 2: Use Whitelist to block all internet except specified websites.

If you cannot find specific Apps or Websites in the Apple-generated list, we recommend you use the Whitelist feature.

The Whitelist feature will allow you to block ALL apps and website, EXCEPT the ones you specify.

For example, you can use Whitelist to allow 'gmail.com' and 'amazon.com', and all other websites will be blocked.
