Google Chrome is a very popular browser. It was launched in 2008 and after that I have never used any other browser. It is fast and secure browser. After its launch, I have never used any other browser instead of it. The only reason to stick to this browser is its fast speed and smooth performance.
Recently, One of my friends asked me How to block a website in chrome? then I decided to write a post on it because there are so many other people who want to know about it. Well, there are so many reasons to block a website. Every individual has its own personal reason. So, instead if getting into it let’s directly come to the point. In this post, I will share the step by step guide to block a website in chrome.
Block a website in Chrome
There are so many different ways to block a website in chrome. You can block a website in chrome using the extension or if you don’t want to use any extension then you can do it manually too. I always prefer blocking a site manually because extensions can be removed or turned off anytime and you know that more extensions slower the browsing experience. So, just forget about it and let’s see the manual method of blocking a website in chrome.
- First, Launch the Chrome browser
- Tap on the three dots on top right corner of the chrome browser
- Then Select Setting and after that tap on Advance settings
- Now Click on Proxy settings under network
- Windows Internet Property window will appear on your screen
- Now, Select Restricted sites in the top pane
- Then, click the Sites button
- Now add the url of the site which you want to block
- Tap on Add button
- After finalizing the list click on close button and Ok
- Now You have to restart the chrome browser and After that, your site will be blocked on the Chrome Browser.
You can add URL of any site here and that site can’t be accessed from your chrome browser.
So many ways are there to do secure browsing on chrome. Let’s discuss some of them below:
Use HTTPS everywhere
I always use extensions very carefully because one extension can ruin all your browsing experience in chrome and one can make. So, I prefer Https everywhere extension which serves me best without disturbing my chrome browsing experience. It is improving with the new updates. You must use this extension in your chrome browser for secure browsing.
Use A VPN
Surfing on the internet is not safe nowadays. So, we should use VPN (Virtual Private Network) which do not allow anyone to trace our working and IP address. There are so many VPN service providers who don’t maintain any record. They just take their payments and don’t save our details that what we have surfed and all.
