    Family Safety App Blocking doesn't work


    I have repeatedly "Blocked" Roblox on my son's account, but it consistently becomes unblocked. I'm certain my son does not know my password. I've tried blocking it from both his computer as well as mine, but nothing seems to work. The feature simply doesn't work. Is there something I'm missing?

    :)

  2. Family Safety App Blocking Not Working

    Hi Mike,

    Let's make sure that the apps you mentioned are properly blocked to ensure that your kids will not be able to access it. To do that , follow the steps below:

    • Log in to your Family Safety account.
    • Click App, games & media.
    • Toggle on the Block inappropriate apps and games option.
    • Under Limit apps, games, and media from Store, click the drop-down list to adjust the restriction.
    • In the Blocked apps & games list, check if Google Chrome is included.

    Let us know if your child is still able to do some search even though it's already blocked so we can further assist you.

    Regards.

    Microsoft Family Safety app blocking not reliable

    I have a Windows 10 tablet for my kid. I have it setup through Microsoft Family Safety such that certain app is blocked. I tested it and it worked. However, I found out that my kid can simply bypass the protection by uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Am I doing it wrong?

    Hi,

    Thank you for updating with the status of the issue and apologies for the delay in responding.

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:


    • Incorrect Family Safety settings.

    • Web filtering is not setup correctly.
    Remove and try to re-add the site in the block list and check.

    Try the steps listed here:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to refer the article and check if you have setup web filtering correctly or not.

    How do I prevent my child from seeing certain websites or chatting online?

    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to refresh Family Safety filter and check if it helps.

    How do I refresh the Family Safety Filter?
