Hey Guys. This is Praveen for TechEmpty.
In this video I will be showing you how to block websites on Chrome browser. This tutorial
will help you to block websites of any type based on the web URL or a particular word
that exists in the URL string. Basically this is a free browser addon available in Chrome
webstore but the premium version has an ability to switch on the uninstall protection which
means no user other than administrator can uninstall this browser addon. So, let’s get
started to know how to block websites on Google Chrome.
First, you need to install a chrome browser addon called “Block Site”. Go through the
link provided here in the description to download the same. It’s about 1.5 mb. Wait until the
download completes and proceed to install the addon on Chrome.
After successful installation, open the website that you would like to block. Right click
anywhere on the window then select “Block Site” followed by “Add current site to blacklist”.
In the next second, you will be greeted with a message that the selected site was blocked.
This is the first method and the easier way to block websites on chrome. Let me explain
you some advanced features. Right click on the browser window and here
select “Block Site” then “Options”. This will open a new tab with bunch of options.
The first feature here is “Blocked Sites”. User have any ability to block a particular
website and can redirect the url to any other site. For example say, I would like to block
facebook.com. When I did that, it shows a message saying that this site was block intentionally.
So, to overcome this, redirect facebook.com to google.com where it looks natural and other
users might think it’s a PC issue. You can export the blocked websites list and can import
the same here in this section. The second feature here in this addon is “Blocked
Words”. Yes, user can choose which words to block on chrome. Note, the words that you
would like to block must be on URL string. For example say “book”. Then the websites
like facebook.com or freshbooks.com won’t open up until this option is enabled. Even
when the google search query frames the URL structure, it will blocks it too. You can
redirect these webpages to other page using custom redirect feature.
The last useful feature is Authentication. Set the password where only the users who
knows this password can change the settings like changing or deleted blocked websites
from admin panel. Also, make sure to OFF “Allow sending anonymous
statistics? ” in “other” section. You can play with other options and make use
of this addon to the most. That’s it. If you face any issues do comment
