Block Websites in Play Time

What are Blocked Sites?

Websites are grouped into categories based on their content. While many of these website categories are suitable for kids, other categories such as adult and gambling aren't. 

Habyts blocks inappropriate categories by default. However, as a parent, you can choose to unblock certain website categories, allowing your child access to these websites if desired.

You can also block specific websites not blocked by the Play Time Blocked site filter.

Handy Hint: Website categories blocked in Play Time are blocked in Study Time too.
