  1. MS Family Safety YouTube Block Not Working


    I'm trying to block YT from an individual with some issues. I've tried putting the domain in using multiple methods ... hell I don't care if I have to block Goggle in it's entirety since we use DDG.What I am asking for is a way for MSFS to block YouTube from even showing. I'm wanting to completely remove it from vision from him so if you're going to suggest YT's restrictions **** like all the other posts asking the same unanswered question then kindly DON'T BOTHER as it's not what I'm asking for.I've tried just youtube.com, https://www.youtube.com as is seen in the Edge URL bar and more

    :)

    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.
