How to Block Any Website on a Computer, SmartPhone, or Network

I'm sure there are a lot of reasons you would want to block certain websites. Maybe you're a business owner or a parent that wants to block inappropriate and dangerous sites from your workforce or children. On the other hand, you might be a remote employee or self-employed and you want to block websites to stay focused on productivity. Web sites can be a threat to your home or business as it's a gateway for cybercriminals to get access to your home or office computes. Thankfully, you can block websites on a computer, a smartphone, or across an entire network. Here are some quick and easy instructions to help you block websites at your home or business.

1. Use Web Blocking Software. If you're looking to block websites on a single computer or device, web blocking software is the best solution. These programs are customizable which allows you to set what times you’re allowed to visit certain sites or start a timer that blocks all access to distracting social media. They can also track browser usage and highlight the sites that are draining away your time.
