    MS Family started blocking Chrome


    I see no setting to block Chrome. Why is Chrome blocked? Everything was fine on this machine until a week ago and it started blocking for no reason when this machine had no issue opening it.


    Additionally, there is an email button for permissions. No email was ever received and we repeated this twice. The only place an ask for chrome existed was in the web portal.


    Now my family is asking to remove MS family. Why am I have this conversation with my family? This should work and there should not be any changes that have not been approved by a parent - including MS making changes as it creates headaches.

    :)

    Family Features blocking google chrome

    Hi Taylor,

    It is possible that there is an issue with the Family settings. This can be the reason why you're unable to use Google Chrome. We recommend that you check you family settings by accessing account.microsoft.com/family
    to see Google Chrome is added to restricted applications.

    If you're already an adult in your family settings, we suggest removing your account from your family settings and see if you will be able to access Google Chrome. We also suggest creating a new Microsoft account, and then add that account to your family
    as an adult. These steps will allow us to verify if there is an issue with your family settings or if there is an issue with your original Microsoft account.

    We'll be waiting for the outcome.

  3. Block chrome and extensions on family safety

    Hi Palango,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    You can try to block those extensions and chrome.

    Manage family settings:

    Refer the steps below.


    • Go to
      account.microsoft.com/family
      and sign in with your Microsoft account.

    • Select the child whose settings you want to manage from the list of children in your Family. If your kids also use Family Safety on older versions of Windows, or My Family on older Windows phones, you’ll see them listed per device.

    • Choose what to turn on or change for your child's account:

    • Recent activity allows you to see what websites they've been visiting, what apps and games they've been using, and how much time they've been spending on their devices.

    • Web browsing lets you choose what websites your child can and can't see.

    • Apps & games allows you to limit the apps and games your child can download from the Windows Store. It also lets you unblock any app or game you’ve blocked previously.

    • Screen time allows you to set the maximum amount of time they can spend on their devices.
    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us we will be happy to assist you.

    Family Safety Not Blocking Websites on Google Chrome

    Family safety has suddenly stopped blocking any website on the blocked list when using Google Chrome. It still blocks them on Microsoft Edge but Edge additionally blocks Google websites such as Gmail and Google Docs even though they are on the allowed list.

    I have tried removing and adding back the account but it did not help. Any advice on fixing this issue will be much appreciated.
