How to Block Websites On Android

There are several methods to block websites on an Android device. Here are three common methods.

  1. Using a third-party app:
    There are several apps available on the Google Play Store that can block websites on your Android device. One popular option is “BlockSite.” Here’s how to use it:
    a. Download and install the BlockSite app from the Google Play Store. b. Open the app and grant the necessary permissions when prompted. c. Tap the “+” (plus) icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen. d. Enter the URL of the website you want to block and tap the checkmark icon to add it to the block list. e. The added website will now be blocked on your device.
  2. Using the mobile browser’s built-in features:
    Some mobile browsers, like Google Chrome, have built-in features to block specific websites. However, this method is not foolproof, as users can still access blocked sites through other browsers.
    To block websites on Google Chrome:
    a. Open Chrome and navigate to the website you want to block. b. Tap the three-dot menu at the top-right corner of the screen. c. Select “Add to Home screen.” d. Long press the newly created shortcut on your home screen and tap “Edit” or the pencil icon. e. Change the URL of the shortcut to a non-existent or unreachable website (e.g., “http://blocked”). f. Save the changes. Now, when you try to access the blocked site using the shortcut, it will be inaccessible.
  3. Using a Family Link app:
    Google’s Family Link app allows you to manage your child’s device and block websites remotely. To use this app:
    a. Download and install the Google Family Link app on your device and your child’s device. b. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up the app and link the devices. c. Once the devices are linked, open the Family Link app on your device. d. Select your child’s profile and tap “Manage Settings.” e. Tap “Filters on Google Chrome” and then tap “Manage Sites.” f. Add the URLs of the websites you want to block.
