Introduction

In this guide, we will show you how to block certain websites on Chrome. This can be useful if you want to prevent yourself from accessing certain sites, or if you want to restrict other people who use your computer.

We will first show you how to block websites using the built-in features of Chrome. We will then show you how to use a third-party extension to block websites.

How to block websites on Chrome

There are a few different ways to block websites on Chrome. You can use a plugin like BlockSite, or you can use the built-in parental controls in Chrome. If you want to block websites on your entire computer, you can use the hosts file.

BlockSite is a plugin that lets you block websites on Chrome. To use it, first install the plugin from the Chrome Web Store. Then, go to the BlockSite options page and add the sites you want to block. BlockSite will then block those sites when you try to visit them.

If you want to block websites on your entire computer, you can edit the hosts file. The hosts file is a system file that tells your computer where to find sites on the internet. To edit the hosts file, you will need to open it with a text editor like Notepad++. Once you have opened the hosts file, add the following lines at the bottom of the file:

127.0.0.1 www.example.com
127.0.0.1 example.com

Replace www.example.com and example.com with the sites you want to block. You can add as many lines as you want, one for each site you want to block. Once you have saved the hosts file, Windows will automatically block those sites when you try to visit them in your browser

2.1 Using the Chrome settings

2.1 Using the Chrome settings

If you want to block certain websites on Chrome, you can do so using the settings in the browser. Here’s how:

1. Open Chrome and click on the three dots in the top right corner.
2. Click on “Settings” in the menu that appears.
3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Advanced.”
4. In the “Privacy and security” section, click on “Content settings.”
5. Under “Site settings,” click on “Notifications.”
6. Find the website that you want to block and click on it.
7. Click on “Block” in the pop-up window that appears.

2.2 Using a Chrome extension

If you want to block websites on Chrome, there are a few different methods you can use. You can use a Chrome extension, you can change your DNS settings, or you can use a hosts file.

If you want to block websites on Chrome using an extension, there are a few different extensions that you can use. u Blacklist is one option. Once you’ve installed the extension, open it and click “Add.” Type in the URL of the website that you want to block and click “Add.” Once you’ve added all of the websites that you want to block, click “Done.”

If you want to block websites on Chrome by changing your DNS settings, you can do so by going into your network settings. Click “Network,” then click “Open Network Settings.” Under “Connection,” click “Change Proxy Settings.” Under “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings,” uncheck the box next to “Automatically detect settings.” In the “Proxy Server” section, enter the IP address of the DNS server that you want to use. You can find a list of public DNS servers here. Once you’ve entered the IP address of the DNS server that you want to use, click “OK” and then “OK” again.

You can also block websites on Chrome by using a hosts file. A hosts file is a text file that contains a list of IP addresses and hostnames. When your computer tries to access a website, it will first check the hosts file to see if there is an entry for that website. If there is an entry, it will go to that IP address instead of the actual address of the website. To edit your hosts file, open it in a text editor like Notepad or TextEdit. If there isn’t already an entry for the website that you want to block, add one at the bottom of the file in this format:

IP_address hostname

For example, if you wanted to block example.com, you would add this line at the bottom of your hosts file:

127.0.0.1 example.com

2.3 Using a third-party website

You can also block sites using a third-party website like Opendns.com or Norton ConnectSafe. These websites will allow you to set up DNS filtering which will block sites that are on their lists. You will need to set up an account and then follow their instructions for setting up DNS filtering.

How to unblock websites on Chrome

Assuming you’re referring to unblocking websites that are blocked by a filter or parental controls, the process is actually quite simple. Just follow these steps:

1. Open the Chrome browser and click on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner.
2. Select “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Advanced.”
4. Under “Privacy and security,” click on “Content settings.”
5. Under “Block a website,” enter the URL of the website you want to unblock and click on “Add.”
6. Close out of Settings and you should be good to go!

3.1 Using the Chrome settings

Open your Chrome browser and click on the menu in the top right-hand corner. From the drop-down menu, select “Settings”.

At the bottom of the page, click “Show advanced settings”.

In the “Privacy” section, click “Content Settings”.

Under “Block sites from setting any data,” click “Add” next to each site you want to block.

3.2 Using a Chrome extension

If you want to block websites on Chrome without using any third-party software, you can do so using a Chrome extension. There are many website blockers available on the Chrome Web Store, and it can be hard to choose which one is best for you. I recommend using either BlockSite or StayFocusd.

Both BlockSite and StayFocusd are free and easy to use. To install either extension, open the Chrome Web Store, search for the extension by name, and click “Add to Chrome.”

Once the extension is added to Chrome, click on the icon in the top-right corner of the browser to open the extension’s settings. In both BlockSite and StayFocusd, you can add sites to a blacklist that will be blocked automatically. You can also set limits on how long you can visit certain sites or what days and times certain sites will be accessible.

Conclusion

There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to blocking websites on Chrome, as the best method will depend on your individual needs and preferences. However, all of the methods described above are effective for preventing unwelcome content from appearing in your browser.
