    "Block inappropriate websites" is not working at all for child


    Hello,

    I created new microsoft account and created a child account under family, paid 0.50 and its verified and child account has been created successfully.

    I have windows 10 laptop. Added microsoft account info under accounts.


    Now I want to block all\any the adult stuffs\search while using internet when child logs in to Windows using that account.

    Under family, content restriction, I enabled "Block inappropriate websites" option and also enabled option "Block inappropriate apps, games & media" and set child age as 10 under that option.


    Then to check, I logged off from my windows account and logged in back to windows using child account email and password.

    Then I opened chrome and searched for adult sites, google search everything, then I tried going to any site and I was able to go to any of such site. I want to even restrict search of such things.


    My question is, even though I have "Block inappropriate websites" ON, why is it not blocking anything and why child user is able to search or see anything on browser ?


    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Blocking Inappropriate Websites

    I checked the box to block inappropriate websites for my daughter's user account and then when I opened Edge in her account I saw a number of inappropriate articles. The entertainment section alone had a number of inappropriate articles. Is it possible
    to block the Edge news articles as well?

  3. My son can access blocked websites via https

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. Are you facing this issue with a specific website?

    2. Which websites are you trying to block?

    I understand that your child is able to access blocked websites from the child account. I suggest you to just type the domain name proceeding with the .com without HTTPS (Example: Youtube.com) and check if that helps. Refer the following article for
    steps to
    block inappropriate website
    .

    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to remove and re-add the child to the family account. Refer the following article for steps to

    remove members from your family group
    . The following link will provide steps to

    add members to your family group
    .

    Hope it helps.

    Blocking websites under child user accounts

    Hello Jenn,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft community.

    I know how this concerns you and I’ll help you out with this issue.

    I would like to inform you that, you can set up web browsing limits so they can only visit a small number of sites that you specifically allowed.

    To set up web browsing limits

    • Sign in to
      family on the Microsoft account website
      .
    • Select the child you want to turn on web browsing limits for.
    • Select Web browsing, and switch Block inappropriate websites from
      Off to On. Now, adult content is blocked and
      SafeSearch is on when your child uses the most common search engines.
    • If you want your child to only see websites you've explicitly allowed, check the box next to
      Only see websites on the allowed list.
    To allow or block specific websites

    • Sign in to
      family on the Microsoft account website
      .
    • Select the child you want to turn on web browsing limits for.
    • Select Web browsing.
    • To add a site to their allow list, go to Always allow these and enter the
      URL of a website you want to allow.
    • To add a site to their block list, go to Always block these and enter the
      URL of a website you want to block.
    Hope it helps. Reply with results to help you further.
