What is Opal?

Opal is the #1 screen time app. You can find out more about us on the about page.

Screen time affects all of our lives. Opal is the perfect app for people looking to reduce their daily screen time, but also for people who want increased focus, less stress and better sleep. Using proprietary technology, Opal can disconnect distractions on your phone and help you stay on track.

You can start Opal for short sessions of 5, 10, 60 minutes or throughout the entire day in the background. You can also schedule focus sessions throughout the week where apps will automatically be blocked. For example during your Sleep, Work, Morning, Study schedules. Opal will fit with your schedule and adapt to your life.


  • Disconnect distracting apps on your phone, for short sessions of 5, 10, 60 minutes or throughout the day in the background.
  • Set a timer and write your intention before using apps.
  • Focus timer that blocks distracting apps without any way to bypass.
  • Schedule focus time daily where apps will automatically start blocking. For example during your Sleep, Work, Morning, Study schedules.
  • Measure your focus with β€œFocus Score”

You can add or remove Apps and Websites that qualify as distracting directly from your Opal Settings (accessible from the top right corner of your Profile tab).

"This week, I’ve started using Opal to establish healthier boundaries with my phone (aka stop doomscrolling) and let me tell you - BOY HOWDY am I a fan. Already noticing just how ~STRESSED~ doomscrolling was making me. And creating better habits via elimination." - Erin

"Weird to think that an app would make me use my phone less... Opal but is the only thing keeping me focused on deep work days." - Zach

"Never in a bazillion years did I think I would be below 3 hours of screen time a day. My mood is SO much better." - Kristi
