How do I block a website using Qustodio?

  • Updated


This article tells you how to block a specific website using Qustodio.

Qustodio blocks specific types of websites using a variety of criteria. Some websites are blocked because they appear on lists of unallowed websites maintained by Qustodio and others. Other web pages and websites are blocked because Qustodio detects unwanted content on them.

Summary: To block a website, open the Qustodio portal. Go into your child’s account and choose Rules, then Web Filtering > Websites. Enter the name of the website and choose Block.

Qustodio can report and block websites on the following browsers:

  • Mac computers: Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox.
  • Android devices: Google Chrome and Firefox.
