    Unable to block youtube using family safety

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.



    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
    on the list, please follow the steps below.

    • On any computer, sign in to the
      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
    Get the latest settings from the website button (located on the left side of?) on the upper right of the window. After doing this, verify if YouTube is now accessible or not.

    How do I block YouTube from my child in Microsoft Family?

    Microsoft Family blocking google, youtube, facebook, yahoo for child accounts

    This simply does not work as it should..... I also have 2 adults & 2 children set up with MS family safety on windows 10 PC's.

    Adults can access all websites fine... Kids cannot access youtube / google ect...

    I want my children to access youtube & google as I am confident that I have good ISP blocking as well as we talk to our children to understand the dangers of the internet ect... My children use google all the time for home work researching.

    My point is this.... EVEN WHEN I TURN OFF FILTERING for my kids accounts it continues to block these websites. Even if I add them to the white list it blocks these sites...Whats the point of a white list if it still does not let your kids have access to
    it.

    This happens no matter what browser I use (Chrome / IE / Firefox).

    As a parent I should be able to decide what is available to my kids using the whitelist but this simply does not work as I stated at start of thread.

    All this means now is that like me many other parents will have to take there childrens account off there family list and setup individually meaning no more control over time limits / all the other bad websites other than google / youtube are available to
    them ect ect...

    Key points:

    1. Whitelist that doesn't allow you to whitelist Google / Youtube

    2. Turning off Web filtering still restricts your childs account

    3. Parents having to remove child accounts to enable access to youtube & Google (Probably the most common websites in the world)

    Microsofts Family Safety is a great concept to intergrate into your account, it just needs to be further tweaked to enable parents to actually have the power to control there activities rather than Microsoft white blanketing everything for everyone.
