  1. Google Chrome Still Opening On Child's Account Despite Blocked Status


    Hi All,

    As the title suggests, I am having difficulty with parental controls and Google Chrome. Specifically, I have a child's account with several restricted apps. When I navigate to restricted apps on the child's profile, Google Chrome displays as restricted, but can still be opened on the child's profile. This problem just started several days ago.

    Has anyone had a similar problem and found success?

    I've run through the generic fixes on the Microsoft website: updated the computer's software (windows 10) privacy settings are set to "full" not basic, restarted the computer, verified the account. I'm at a loss of troubleshoot options to run.

    Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.


    Thanks

  2. Block Google Chrome for Child

    I have 5 kids to setup content restrictions for. Though I love that Microsoft gives the power to have the safety features it does, the process is RIDICULOUS if you are doing it for more than 1 child!!!

    I attempted to setup my 3 younger kids to only have access to a couple of specific websites, but no other sites. During that process I removed Google Chrome from the blocked apps list. What I did not know was that I had to use Microsoft Edge (one of the
    worst browsers ever) to use the feature that only allows certain sites. So now Google Chrome is no longer a blocked app, but yet the site has no way to just add it back.

    I looked up how to block an app and was SHOCKED by the official info from Microsoft. See Below. Basically your kid has to use an app before you can add it to the blocked list. Doesn't that defy the purpose of having safety features for a child?

    Besides... I used my child's account and opened Chrome, yet it still DID NOT show up in their activity list in order to block it. NOW WHAT?

    FROM MICROSOFT

    Blocking specific apps is possible with the Microsoft Account's Family Safety Feature. To block a specific application on your child's account, it is a requirement that the app must be used by your child, so that it will appear in under the Recent Activity
    list. For your child's security, you can log in as the child and launch the app to satisfy this requirement.

    Follow these steps to successfully block specific applications:

    1. Visit the Microsoft Family website and then sign in your Microsoft Account.
    2. Click the account of the child that you want to block from using an app.
    3. Select Recent Activity.
    4. Click to ensure that Activity Reporting is turned on.
    5. Scroll down and look for Apps & Games.
    6. Choose the apps that you want to block on your child's account.
    7. Click Block to block usage of the app.

    Google Chrome Still Opening On Child's Account Despite Blocked Status

    Block Google Chrome for Child

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I suggest you to remove the child account from family group and then re-add it.



    To remove accounts from Microsoft family, please follow the steps mentioned in the link:
    Remove members from your Microsoft family and to re-add the account,
    follow the steps provided in the link: Add members to your Microsoft family



    Ensure that Activity Reporting is turned on under
    Recent Activity in parent account.

    After adding the account, sign into your child’s account on Windows.

    Try to access the application and check if it reflects under ‘Recent activity’ in parent account.



    Hope it helps.
