Cold Turkey Editor's Review

To keep your kids and teenage family members away from pornographic and objectionable websites you can use parental control software. Such apps offer numerous restrictive measures to limit PC and web access for young users. However, adult users also get distracted to certain online services while working and this can affect productivity adversely. If you want to get over distraction caused by addiction to online services and social media sites, use Cold Turkey. This lightweight app has been made to block access to such websites based on time limit. With this app installed, you cannot access specified apps and websites and so focusing on work becomes easier.

Cold Turkey is available in free and paid version. It runs on PCs with Windows XP and later versions.

The tool has a clean and sleek UI that is easy to understand and use. It has a preset list from which you can select websites that need to be blocked. You can specify a time limit until those websites will remain blocked. Besides, you can add urls manually to its restriction list.

Cold Turkey is very stringent about programs that have been marked as blocked. It cannot be fooled by resetting the system clock. There is no option other than waiting for the lockout time to be over before you can gain access to the listed websites. The app can be used to block online gaming sites too.

The blocking range of Cold Turkey covers the computer comprehensively. No user can bypass its blocking. It also blocks access through any browser. If you try to terminate the app before time period expiry, access to internet will be revoked. Thankfully, the app consumes small amount of system resources. It is useful for helping computer users to focus more on work and evade distractions caused by various online services.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, minimal UI.
•    Compressive PC wide blocking.
•    Easy to use and configure.
•    Stringent blocking cannot be bypassed.

Negative Points:
•    Nothing as such.

Conclusion:
Cold Turkey is a time based internet and app restriction app that can be useful both for kids and adult users. It uses predefined list and timing specified by users to block access to online services. The time bound restriction is thorough and cannot be bypassed by tech savvy users. It covers all user accounts in a PC and web browsers. Since it is freeware and user friendly, there is no reason not to try it.

Rating: 3/5
