  1. Blocking Youtube app using MS Family settings Windows 10 Home


    Hello,


    I am using MS family settings to block access to sites such as youtube.com, however, the MS Family settings does not display the Youtube app as an application, so while I am able to block access to the site, Youtube can still be watched via the app.

    Question,

    What is the process to ensure MS Family settings including the MS Family App, displays ALL applications present on a linked device?

    :)

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check, if it helps:

    Have you tried manually removing YouTube on the blocked websites at the Family Safety website? Base on how you setup your web filter, you have set the filter in which YouTube might not be included. So, to have YouTube exempted

      Family Safety
      home page with your Windows Live ID.
    Click Edit settings under the name of the child/member whose settings you want to change, and then click
    Web filtering lists. Under Allow or block a website, type or paste into the box the web address of the website that you want to block. Select an option from the list, and then click
    Add. Click Save.

    Don't forget to refresh your Family Safety settings to update the changes you made on the website. To refresh the settings, login to the Family Safety client installed on your PC and click the
