How to Block Website on MAC
The web is likely to have both blessings and curses at the same time. On the one hand, it enables us to do the work that we do and access the wealth of human knowledge. On the other hand, it distracts us from our goals and can also be outright dangerous for our children. Naturally, the topic of limiting web access has been under discussion for decades. How can we stop Adult websites for our children? What does it mean for the modern workplace to block websites like Facebook and YouTube? Why do we need to ban ourselves with website blockers to resist temptation and distraction? These are all legitimate questions, which we explore below, besides showing you the best ways to block websites that steal your attention throughout the day.
Click on the Apple menu and choose System Preferences.
Select Parental Control.
From the dropdown menu at the top of the window, select the user account you want to apply (only the standard accounts are shown here, so if you can’t see the account you want, go to User and Group and check its account. Type as standard change).
Choose Content and Privacy and then press.
Select Content and then choose from the options under Web Content.
If you choose to allow access to only the specified sites, you will have to paste or type in the URLs of those sites.
Turn off System Preferences.
Using Parental control Settings
Click the Apple icon at the top left corner of the screen to open the Apple menu.
In the menu that opens, click on the “System Preferences” menu. You can also get the preference menu icon in your Dock, but with a gear-like symbol.
Locate the parental icon on the lower left side of the screen (in Mac OS X). And if you cannot see it, type “Parental control” in the search bar located on the top left of the “System preferences” window to find the option.
Click on the user account that you want to customize by enabling or blocking websites. After applying customizations, click on the “Enable Parental Controls.” If you don’t have an account for your child, you should create one by clicking on the “create a new account with parental controls” and then follow the on-screen instruction to get the account set.
Tap to open the web tab located on the upper part of the window. If you’re using the old versions of Mac OS X, the option is labeled as “Content”.
Go through the options and customize them to manage where you will reach the child and the time frame. Under this option, you can create a limit by clicking “Try to limit access to adult websites automatically”, which will block adult content using Apple’s automated list. Alternatively, you can use “Allow access to only these websites” and cannot block all the sites listed in the section.
Adults may appear to be content and add more restrictions to block any access to limit time to access websites. You can do this by clicking on the “App” tab and “Time line” respectively.
