Have you decided to block websites on chrome so you can stop your kids from accessing inappropriate content and prevent yourself from opening other distracting websites?

You may search online for guides on how to block website on chrome and start with the guide that tells you do so by setting up OS X Parental Control. It’s true that you can use Parental Control to set the websites one can visit, but it also requires quite a bit of time and computer knowledge. Also, it's important that you test the settings first, since Parental Controls also blocks access to all secure websites, whether you intended to block or not.

Instead of using Parental Controls, we can also use a website and app blocker to block specific websites on chrome, and it's not as difficult as you think it is!
