    family safety "Block App" does not work on AVG Web Browser


    I have set up family safety features for my kids. But lately I have noticed one of them installed AVG Web Browser, I added it to "Always Blocked" list, but it still starts on his computer.

    When you start the app there is a window displayed "App is blocked due to family settings", but the browser still starts underneath and you can use it.

    How can I effectively block it?


    Thank you.

    :)

  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.
