Hello Jerry,

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft community.

I know how this concerns you and I’ll help you out with this issue.

I would like to inform you that, you can set up web browsing limits so they can only visit a small number of sites that you specifically allowed.

To set up web browsing limits

  1. Sign in to family on the Microsoft account website.
  2. Select the child you want to turn on web browsing limits for.
  3. Select Web browsing, and switch Block inappropriate websites from Off to On. Now, adult content is blocked and SafeSearch is on when your child uses the most common search engines.
  4. If you want your child to only see websites you've explicitly allowed, check the box next to Only see websites on the allowed list.

To allow or block specific websites

  1. Sign in to family on the Microsoft account website.
  2. Select the child you want to turn on web browsing limits for.
  3. Select Web browsing.
  4. To add a site to their allow list, go to Always allow these and enter the URL of a website you want to allow.
  5. To add a site to their block list, go to Always block these and enter the URL of a website you want to block.

Hope it helps. Reply with results to help you further.

Thank you for your response, but the box you said to check is not there.  No where on that page is there anything that says, "Only see websites on the allowed list."  I attached a screenshot so you can see what I do.

Hello Jerry,

A quick question before we proceed.

Did you verify your child account?

If you did not verify your child account, be informed that to verify that an adult is giving a child permission to create a new Microsoft account, COPPA requires that a small amount be charged to the adult's credit card.

For more information regarding this you can refer the following link:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/family-safety-why-does

If you have issues regarding verifying your child account, you can refer to Babu V’s post in the following link and check if it helps.

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_security/cannot-verify-my-identity-on-windows-10/16543aae-3037-4472-a58f-d8bd8d4ae05d

Verify the child account and check if you get the option to check the box next to Only see websites on the allowed list.

Hope it helps. Reply with results to help you further.

"Only see website on the allowed list" is not there.

The option is not there.

How many times do users need to say this?

Microsoft support please check, escalate, and resolve, it has been an issue for months at this stage and it means that instead of family safety being a massively beneficial service it is actually absolutely useless.

Note: This option is not present if the device is a windows 10 device. The option is still present when the childs device is detected as a Windows 8/8.1 device.

How to block a website on a Windows 10 computer in 2 different ways

  • You can block a website on a Windows 10 computer using the Microsoft Edge browser.
  • To block sites through Microsoft Edge, head to Microsoft's Family Safety site and log in with your adult Microsoft account.
  • Adult Microsoft accounts can't block websites, so you'll need to create a child's account.
  • Using the Family Safety app, you can block websites on Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android devices, all at once.
  • Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.

Windows 10 has built-in parental controls that you can use to block undesirable websites through the Microsoft Edge web browser. This can help keep your kids safe when they're using your computer unsupervised. 

But in order to block websites, your child will need to have their own Windows user account and sign in on their own — they can't simply use your account, because you can't block websites on adult accounts.

Here's how to set up a Windows account for your kids, and use it to block websites on Windows 10. Note that you can set this up using any internet browser, but once you do, the sites will only be blocked in Microsoft Edge — any other browser will be unaffected.

Check out the products mentioned in this article:

Windows 10 (From $139.99 at Best Buy)

Acer Chromebook 15 (From $179.99 at Walmart)

Samsung Galaxy S10 (From $699.99 at Walmart)

Xbox One S (from $389.95 at Amazon)

How to block websites on Windows 10

Set up a Windows account for kids

If your kid can already log into your Windows 10 with their own account, skip down to the next section. If not, you'll need to start by adding a child account to your PC, so that Windows knows when they're logged in.

1. Create an outlook.com email address for your child. After the account has been created and your child knows how to log in to check his or her email, add your child's account to your Windows 10 PC. Start by clicking the Start button and choosing the gear-shaped Settings icon.  

2. Click "Accounts" and then click "Family & other users."

3. Click "Add a family member" and follow the directions to "add a member" and enter your child's email address.

4. After you've added your child's account, click it on the Family & other users page and click "Can log in."

If you prefer, you can choose to block all sites except for a few that you specifically approve. To do that, click "Only allow these websites" and enter the sites you want to allow, one at a time, in the text box labeled "Add a website you want to allow."

How to block websites across Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android devices

Microsoft offers a way to block undesirable websites no matter where your child is — as long as they're using a Windows 10, Xbox One, or an Android phone. 

Microsoft's Family Safety app is an Android app you can use to filter the content your kids can access on their devices. 

1. To get started, install Family Safety on your Android phone and log in with your adult Microsoft account.

2. On the home screen, tap your child's name and then tap "Content filters."

3. Tap "Web and search."

4. To block a site, type or paste a URL in the "Add a website" field in the "Never allowed" section. It'll appear in the list in the "Never allowed" section. 

5. Tap "Save" at the top right of the screen. 

You can also choose to block all sites except for a few that you specifically approve. To do that, turn on  "Only let them use allowed websites" by swiping the button to the right and then and entering the sites you want to allow, one at a time, in the "Add a website" field.

Here is how you can block certain websites in Kids Mode in Microsoft Edge to prevent your children from viewing things you do not want. You can also allow a specific website using the same technique if the pre-built whitelist does include a page that your child needs.

Kids Mode is a dedicated space for children to access the Internet safely. After you enable Kids Mode in Microsoft Edge, the browser blocks all websites except those in the whitelist and turns on Bing SafeSearch. Besides safeguards and restrictions, Edge applies a special kid-friendly theme to make the browser look more engaging. Parents and caregivers have a couple of options to customize Kids Mode in Microsoft Edge. They can change the theme, select the age range, and allow or block websites. In this article, you will find out how to block or allow websites in Kids Mode.

Note: Kids Mode is currently available in the US only. To use Kids Mode, update the browser to version 90 or newer.

Allow websites for children in Microsoft Edge

  1. Open the Edge browser.
  2. Press  + to open the main menu and select Settings.Edge open Settings
  3. Click on the Family section in the sidebar.
  4. Next, click Manage allowed websites. Tip: You can get to this section with a single click using the URL. Just copy-paste it into the address bar and press Enter.Edge Manage allowed websites
  5. Press the Add website button and enter the address of the website you want to allow for your child. For example, winaero.com.Allow websites for children in Microsoft Edge
  6. Click the Add button.Allow a Website In Kids Mode In Microsoft Edge

You are done.

When you enable Kids Mode in Microsoft Edge, the browser automatically blocks all the websites. Children can only access the pages listed on the whitelist. This eliminates the need to block a website manually. Still, some users may decide that a website from the whitelist is inappropriate for their children. If so, here is how to remove it:

Block websites for children in Microsoft Edge

  1. Launch Microsoft Edge.
  2. Open the main menu and click on Settings.Edge open Settings
  3. Go to Family > Manage Allowed Websites. Again, you can open this section faster using the shortcut.
  4. Find the website you want to block, and press the X button.Block websites for children in Microsoft Edge

That is it. Now your children will not be able to open that website.

Do note that Kids Mode is not the only way to block websites on Edge. Microsoft offers parental controls with more granular tools for children and teens. Kids Mode in Edge works best for children up to 11 years old. For teens, Microsoft recommends using the Microsoft Family tools available on Windows 10, Xbox, and Android. These will allow you to block specific websites without fully limiting access to the Internet.

Using Microsoft Family to Manage Your Child's Computer Access

This chapter is from the book 

Controlling Website Access

After you’ve added family members, you can configure child accounts to control their access to websites. You can automatically block access to adult websites (Microsoft decides what is and isn’t an adult site), but you can also explicitly block or allow access to particular sites.

Blocking Inappropriate Websites

You can automatically block access to adult websites. Doing so will also block a child’s ability to use InPrivate browsing and will also ensure that Bing SafeSearch is on so that inappropriate search results are not displayed in Bing searches.

  1. Browse to https://account.microsoft.com/family to access the Microsoft Family settings for your account. (You’ll need to log in with your Microsoft account.)
  2. Tap or click a child in your family.

  3. Tap or click Web Browsing.
  4. Tap or click Block Inappropriate Websites to turn on the setting.

Explicitly Allowing a Site

You might find that Microsoft Family blocks a site that you want to allow a child to access. You can explicitly allow access to a site so that it will always be allowed.

  1. From the Web Browsing screen on the Microsoft Family website, swipe up or scroll down to access the Always Allow These section.
  2. Enter a website URL in the Enter the URL of a Website You Want to Allow.
  3. Tap or click Allow.

Removing an Allowed Site

If you want to remove access to a site that you’ve previously explicitly allowed, you can easily remove the site’s URL.

  1. From the Web Browsing screen on the Microsoft Family website, swipe up or scroll down to the list of allowed sites.
  2. Tap or click Remove next to the URL that you no longer want to allow.

  3. If you unintentionally remove the wrong site, tap or click Undo to add the URL back to the list of allowed sites.

Explicitly Blocking a Site

You might encounter websites that Microsoft Family allows but that you don’t want your child to access. In these cases, you can explicitly block access to a site.

  1. From the Web Browsing screen on the Microsoft Family website, swipe up or scroll down to Always Block These.
  2. Enter the URL of a website you want to block.
  3. Tap or click Block to add the site to the list of blocked sites.

Removing a Blocked Site

If you want to remove the restriction on a website you’ve blocked, you can remove it from the list of blocked websites.

  1. From the Web Browsing screen on the Microsoft Family website, swipe up or scroll down to Always Block These.
  2. Tap or click Remove next to the website that you no longer want to block.

  3. If you unintentionally removed the wrong site, tap or click Undo to add the URL back to the list of blocked sites.

Responding to Requests

If a child attempts to browse to a website that is blocked, a message will let them know that they must ask for permission to access the website. If they click to ask for permission, an email message will be sent to all adults on the account asking for permission. You can then either approve or reject the request.

  1. Open the email request that was sent to an adult in your family.
  2. Review the requested URL to determine whether you want to allow access.
  3. Tap or click Allow to allow access to the requested website.

  4. If prompted, log in with your Microsoft account to confirm that you are allowing access.
