Blocking or allowing access to specific websites using Norton Family website

By default, Norton Family prevents your children from visiting inappropriate websites. Norton Family blocks all the websites that belong to the blocked category. If you want to block a website that does not belong to any of the listed category, you can add it to the blocked list. You can also block multiple websites.

When you add a website to the Specific Websites to block, Norton Family creates a blacklisted group of websites. When the child attempts to access any of the websites that belong to the blacklisted group, Norton Family blocks access to the website and notifies you. You can add up to 1000 websites to the blocked and allowed list put together. If you want to allow your children to visit a specific website that belongs to the blocked list, you can add the website to the allowed list. To allow your child to access a specific website, you need to specify the website name. You can also allow multiple websites at the same time.

To block access to a website on your child's device, you need to turn on Web supervision.
