Plucky, the filter

Plucky is a filter for people who want to limit their Internet access.

What makes Plucky distinctive?

Plucky is a strong filter designed to support self-control. And while Plucky is highly configurable, it is also known for blocking all images and videos by default.

Unlike a lot of other products, Plucky makes very few explicit decisions about what is bad or good for the end-user. Instead, it aims to empower the user to determine what content should be allowed or blocked.

Unlike most other filters, Plucky configuration is not password protection by default. Instead configuration is usually protected by a delay system.

Plucky works on Windows, Linux, macOS, and Android, with some caveats. See the respective platform pages for details.

Finally, Plucky aims not at convenience but at inconvenience!

Plucky, the way of life

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, thou shalt not commit adultery: but I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

– Matthew 5:27-30, KJV
