  1. Why is Microsoft family features blocking chrome?


    Hello! I'm trying to use google chrome yet for some reason my computer won't let me. Everytime when I try to open up chrome, it keeps popping up "Microsoft Family Features." I don't know why but it keeps blocking both chrome and firefox but not Edge. I tried EVERYTHING to get rid of those ghastly family features but they're still won't letting me use chrome. Anyone know how to fix?

    :)

    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.

    Hello
    MayceHoag,


    To disable family features and turn off family settings on Windows 10, I suggest that you follow the steps outlined in these support articles:


    Make sure you're signed in with your Microsoft account to
    account.microsoft.com/family
    .

    If you would like me to provide additional advice, simply respond to this thread. I will get notified and I’ll reply to you as soon as I can.

    Family Features Blocking Chrome on Adult Account

    Hello,

    Best that we could suggest here as an easy fix is to have the Family feature administrator remove your account from the list. Feel free to check out
    this link from our support website for steps on how to do so.
