Prolonged use of electronic devices is one of the most common causes of eye strain today. This is an unfortunate side-effect of the digital era we live in as we spend more and more time staring at a screen every day.

In this regard, Screen Break is an intuitive extension that reminds you to take breaks at regular intervals to reduce eye strain. The extension allows you to adjust the frequency of the interval to suits your needs. Furthermore, the extension features customizable options to modify the overall appearance.

Permissions In an effort to be as transparent as possible with regards to privacy and permissions, the extension only requires the "Notifications" permission to run. This guarantees you get notified when the break is due.

Rest assured that your data is protected at all time. This extension does not collect, process, or store any personal information.

I like this a lot, but lately it seems like pausing notifications or changing the notification schedule doesn't work. So it isn't really working as designed. Not sure why. Hope you can fix this when you can!
