Question App that restricts time spent on a website or blocks it.

Are there any applications that limits how much time you can spend on a website such as youtube or blocks it altogether?
Like in firefox for pc you can install an add on called leechblock which does this and I am looking for something similar for my tablet.

Not unless you root your phone, and install a custom host file with the youtube URL added to it (it has to be manually added as YouTube isn't a site normally in the file). That will certainly block it.

Ive been using this on my PC and laptop for years. Also had it on my kids computer to completely block certain sites. When you have a custom host file you do not need browser addons or AdBlock Plus.

That host file is the same host file used in the AdAway app for rooted phones.
