Force Block is a Chrome extension by Priceless Misc that was originally created to block spoilers for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

It has since been updated with an expanded dictionary to block possible spoilers for the new movie. One of the Priceless Misc developers, Matthew Tyndall, also says that the updated version of Force Block is "less likely to report false positives."

To install Force Block, go to the Chrome Web Store, search for "Force Block" and click Add to Chrome. You will need to restart Chrome for the extension to start working.

The next time you click a link containing possible spoilers, Force Block will black out the page and notify you that there could be spoilers ahead. You can continue at your own risk by clicking Continue anyway and even whitelist pages so they won't be blocked in the future.

And if you click the lightsaber icon in the Chrome toolbar, you can toggle Force Block on or off. May the Force Block be with you.
