What is Pluckeye?
Pluckeye is a filter designed with compulsive users of porn in mind.
When Pluckeye is first installed, all images on the Internet are blocked.
The user then typically whitelists sites from which images are allowed, and sets a waiting period that prevents the user from adding new rules and accessing additional images before the waiting period has expired.
Pluckeye supports scheduled access, accountability, and a few other features.
It is primarily for the person hoping to quit porn, but it is also used by people who simply want to limit their own access to sites such as gmail or facebook and to avoid clickbait.

- TBayAreaPat reviewed PluckeyeTBInstalls like a program, interacts like extension. Appears USA-based. I was just curious, and made more screenshots of options, but I will leave the heavy testing to you,-image filtering extensions are enough for me. I will bet this makes a good parental tool, too. My network monitor shows a change to the host file, but upon uninstallation the file appears to be default.
- AndrejMilojeski reviewed PluckeyeAnSimply life-changing!
I absolutely love Pluckeye. It has helped me in quite a few moments with my addiction to porn and kept me away from certain images and sites because the moments that I knew I wasn't craving, I was blocking every site I knew and now I'm off for good. I've had some issues with using Google Drive and seeing Gmail icons on the page (Gmail is still usable) but they're the only sites I've had issues with. I made this Alternative To account just to leave a good review. Thank you to the creator and I hope you start making enough money to support yourself and your family.
It is the best filter you could use for your internet if you are struggling with self-control and need to get some actual work done on your computer. I could bypass most software I tried. But not this one. It can be customised in so many ways. You need to read the instructions though but it's worth the effort. I use it to block porn and most sites that I find distracting. Mine is also set to block youtube when it is scheduled. On weekends I allow Netflix for a few hours.

Command-line (CLI) and works on Linux. Has a firewall like a rule-based interface. Helps with concentration and work.
Unfairly underestimated and little known, it deserves to be at the top of the filters list. Made to be effective, not to profit. A filter is useful until you cannot bypass it. You will never bypass Plucky, whether you are tech savvy or not. Whenever I've tried any other filter, I've just got some of the Plucky features, and less effective. Also, I find Plucky very lightweight, discreet and fast. Definitive tool for me.
I've been using Plucky for years. If you struggle with internet compulsion, if you have bypassed other common filters and blockers, if you look for a reliable, deep and complete tool to change your habits and mindset you MUST try Plucky. A great and open community will also help you to learn further ways to customize it.
Really no other tool can do what Plucky does. The delay solution as its central idea is a far better solution than common password protection, especially for someone who fights alone. Then, a very strong and granular blocking system lets your filter everything from every possible angle: you can create block and allow rules by content type (pictures, videos, music, documents, file extensions, etc.), origin, domain parts, url, IP address, port, protocol. You can escape unwanted words too. The "system" feature also applies rules outside your browser, controlling the way every program connects to the internet. These are just some of the features.

Yes, it's impossible to bypass.
