As the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens quickly approaches, many are wondering how to avoid the masses of people eager to share their opinion on blogs and publications though social media that could possibly spoil the movie.

Although many claim to be able to easily avoid checking social media, most of us, for one reason or another, have to stay tuned. When that quick-twitch instinct engages you to click that flashy review headline, you’ll need “the force.”

Our friends at the Charlotte based company Priceless Misc. have created the perfect solution. A Google Chrome extension that uses smart pattern detection to analyze the web pages you visit, running the content through a database of Star Wars terms. If it detects too many related terms, or certain extremely potent terms, it will flag the page and give you a proper warning:

The “Spoiler Blocker” extension has been receiving a lot of buzz on the internet.
