Instead of hitting Pause, I turn the VPN OFF#37

To use social media I turn it off myself cause it is easier and because most of the time I want to check multiple social media apps, and thus the set an intention pop-up creates friction when wanting to use multiple apps (although I get that it is intended to be that way).

Also I sometimes forget to turn Opal back on after I’ve manually stopped it, so a reminder or automatically enabling it again would be great. The pause feature is great, but sometimes I need a bit more time than the standard 10 minutes.

I’ve been enjoying Opal, lately I’ve turned it off temporarily because to be honest it still doesn’t work perfectly enough for me to use it full time and I also don’t think I’m so addicted that I need it to be completely honest. It’s a brilliantly designed product, it really is, but for me I am basically going to use it only when I go on holiday and plan to do a digital detox, like a very intentional one. I find it a bit inconvenient in daily life to have it blocking stuff constantly, not really sure why. Anyway, I’m still playing around with how to integrate it into my life so I still have it on my home screen!

“A flaw in Opal is that if I really wanted to see something I’ll turn off the VPN and use it”
