Our mission is
to end smartphone addiction

We believe smartphones are useful tools and so is social media when used intentionally. However, social media is designed to be addictive and distracts many people from being their best selves. The purpose of Be Free is to inspire people to focus on the people and things that matter in their life.

Be Free Challenge

How it works

Step 1. Take the challenge

1 week no social media. Challenge your friends and support each other! No apps with discovery, streaks, followers, broadcasting/content from strangers.


Step 2. Daily messages to motivate and inform

Like your personal tech trainer. Daily text or email to guide you through the challenge. Includes resources to learn about issues and step-by-step guide to be ready for the future.


Step 3. Reflect & plan future smartphone usage

At the end of the week, reflect on how it felt being free of social media. Use the tools from Step 2 to confidently create a plan for using technology (including social media) intentionally.


Step 4. Take the Be Free Pledge

Share your commitment to making the world a better place by taking the pledge.
