Seriousd is a utility software that helps to block windows applications, games, Internet, and distracting social networking websites like Facebook to let you increase your productivity and focus on your work. You can lock any application for a definite time period and you won’t be able to use that application until Seriousd will be unlocked. In an easy manner, you can set time limit for applications and after that applications will be locked. Seriousd works as a parental control system and if you are a parent, then you can control your children to limit the usage of games and other things per day. You can lock applications as well as Seriousd also. Once Seriousd will be locked, then you will have to wait until the lock time period is over.
Seriousd is quite reliable as it is difficult to terminate it using task manager. And even if you will terminate it somehow, then it will open up again as there is a unique VIProcess present which starts Seriousd again and again. And VIProcess is not terminated even when using task manager. Working with Seriousd is a simple task, but you might find it a bit complex for the first time. This article will help you to understand this software easily.
