    Hi, is anyone able to confirm if the web filtering for a child account that is set to "allow list only" will work for them? The allow list i setup on on familysafety.microsoft.com only works on my pc not on the xbox one. When i set it to allow list only
    it block everything including my exceptions i have allowed. thanks

    :)

    Router and Parental Controls

    Shad0wmanUK,

    Yes i do have to do that. I went and put in the MAC address in the trusted domain box on my parental control tab on my router. Reset the router and everything and it would still not connect to the internet. Not sure if i put the MAC address in the right
    area or not. Also my mac address is enabled. So i am stumped now and just going to assume i can't get online. I have parental controls on one of my computers but for my Mac i do not have anything for it to help with web filtering or blocking. THat is the whole
    reason i went through my router was because everything i tried and use for my Mac that i did find caused Kernel messages on it. So if you or anyone else has any suggestions for putting a web filter or web blocker on my Mac so i can remove everything from my
    router that would be greatly appreciated as well.

    Reset Parental Controls

    Hi there,

    I forgot the passcode and answer to the secret question to the parental controls for my Xbox 360. Is there a way to reset the parental code via the web or other means?

    Thanks!

    There is a garing loop-hole you should be aware of:

    It doesn't matter how secure you make any and all accounts on your xbox one: all you have to do [when you go to log-in] is select Add account, go through the steps, lie abut your age, set your own restrictions [select unrestricted on everything] and now
    you have access to everything. period.

    there is no setting to restrict access to this, so anyone can do it, at any time [and then delete it after to hide that it was done]. There are no "Admin" or "Global" restriction settings available to prevent this.

    Microsoft Edge - Can it be Deleted?

    Hello,

    Microsoft edge is a built in app that is unable to be deleted, however there are a few things that you can do to combat the issue.

    1. Use a wifi filter on your router to filter what can and can't be accessed;

    2. Contact your ISP and ask them to guide you on how to restrain access to these sites;

    3. Completely lock down the account with parental controls; or

    4. web filtering by: https://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-one/security/block-inappropriate-content

    Goodluck

    Is it possible that your router has parental controls or a content filter that blocks gaming networks but not video streaming?

    Web filtering on Xbox

    Hey there CrushedPuppet81.

    The passkey can be reset if he knows his account's password. If you don't want him to be able to reset his passkey, we recommend selecting a password for him. As of now, your work around for web filtering is going to be your best option, as it doesn't prevent
    you from typing the parameters into a search engine. Once your son attempts to visit those websites he shouldn't be able to access without the pass key.
