    • Find your child's name and select Content restrictions.

    • Scroll down to Web browsing and switch Block inappropriate websites from Off to On.

    • If you want to always block specific sites, add their URLs under Always blocked.

    • If you want your child to only see websites you've explicitly allowed, check the box next to Only allow these websites.

Web filtering lets you control what kind of websites your child can access on Xbox One. (On Xbox One, we turn this on automatically for kids under 8.) On your Xbox One console:

  • Sign in on the console with an adult account.

  • Press the Xbox  button to open the guide, then select System​​​ > Settings  > Account > Family.
  • Select the child account that you want to add web filters to, then select Web filtering.

  • Select the drop-down to view all the available options.
  • Choose the desired level of web filtering. (Note: Specific websites can only be added to the Always allowed list on https://account.microsoft.com/family.)
