Blocking or allowing a website or website category using Android device

You can control and customize the Web activity of your children in a number of ways. Though you can protect your children by blocking access to websites that are inappropriate, you can also allow specific website categories that you have determined as safe for a child to view. Moreover, you can allow or block a website category from the Android device as well.

To block a website or website category from the Activity tab using Android device

  1. Sign in to Norton Family app in Parent mode.

  2. Tap the child whom you want to manage.

  3. Go to the ACTIVITY tab.

  4. From the list, tap Websites. On Android, you can tap the small triangle next to the child icon to filter the list by an activity type.

  5. Tap a website that you want to block and do one of the following:

    • To block the website, check Block this site. Once blocked, your child cannot visit this site in the future.

    • To block the category, check Block all category. If you choose this option, the child cannot visit this website or any other websites that are included in the category.

    • To remove a restricted website, tap Restricted websites, uncheck the website that you want to allow, and then tap Done.

    • To allow a website, tap Allowed websites. In the Allowed websites window, tap Add website, enter the URL of the website, tap OK, and then tap Done.

As you block a website or a category, the number of websites or categories blocked should be reflected on the Websites settings page.

If you block or allow a website or category from the Android device, the website or category is also shown as blocked or allowed in the Norton Family website and vice versa.
