Unfortunately, Google Chrome does not provide such opportunity.
2. Google Chrome blocking is easy to bypass
Launching another browser or using an online anonymizer is enough to visit the banned website. In addition, the ban can be easily removed, for example, in the same way it was set. Other methods of bypassing bans you can easily find in the Internet.
