I hate to admit this, but I always lose self-control on surfing the Internet. So, is there a OS X app to limit a user's surfing time?

For example, user can just surf the internet for an hour a day, after utilizing an hour, he should not surf anymore.

Application required for OS X.

What I am looking for is not a parent control software, you will need another user (Parents) , what I am looking for is an app like SelfControl, you don't need another user to supervise you.

You haven't specified, whether you want a Premium or a Free software, so if you are looking for a Premium software, than try Family Protector (Mac Parental Control Software).

enter image description here

Features which matches your requirements :

  • History of websites visited for each user account and the ability to easily block/allow a site from the history list
  • Time of day restrictions on network access (restrict access to specific times of day/week, a maximum amount of time per day, or temporarily block a user for a set period of time or until you unblock them manually)

Apart from these, they have tons of additional features

    Thank you, Sir. Premium or Free software is not a problem. I will try this software. Apr 11, 2014 at 12:14
  • Sir, I have tried the software, it's great, but it requires another user (Parent), is there a software that does not need another superuser's intervention? I mean, with this software, I can set my own user's access time. Apr 12, 2014 at 0:23
