The Blissify is a web browser extension that preemptively keeps an eye on a person's emotional state, and blocks webpages that decrease one's good mood. The app is able to track how users respond to different pages.

The app is able to gain such intimate information by capturing the user's reactions through their webcam that are then cross-referenced with an algorithm that reads the mood. Based off of the state of the mood, Blissify will block the webpage temporarily, as a way to stop upsetting the consumer. The app is completely responsive to the laptop user, showcasing a cartoon smilie face that reflects the user's mood in real-time. The app hopes to diminish upset caused by visiting certain sites or reading specific content.
