Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to block a website. If you're a worried parent and want to make sure your kids don't go on websites that they shouldn't be seeing, then this is how to do that. Blocking a site in Internet Explorer is quite simple. Simply go to tools in the top menu, and then to internet options. Once the internet options window opens, simply go to the content tab. From the content tab, you'll find a content advisory section. Click on enable here. Here, a new window will pop up, which also has four tabs. Click on the approved sites tab. Here, you'll be able to enter the URL of what ever website you'd like to block, for example, Once you've entered the URL of the site, click "never" on the right hand side. Now the list will be added to the list of approved or disapproved websites as a disapproved website, there for blocking it from any access from Internet Explorer. However, if you're using Firefox, then there is no such option in the internet options menu, so you'll need to add a Firefox add-on, which can do this for you. To add one, simply go to tools in the top menu, and then select add-ons. If you search for and add-on called block site, you should very easily find a very simple add-on, which will allow you to fully block any sites from access by Firefox. Sure enough, once you search for it, it will be the first result you see, and you can simply click "add to Firefox" to add it.
