Disadvantages of Blocking Websites with Google Chrome options
1. Impossible to block groups of websites or block websites by category
For example, if you wish to protect your children from adult content you need to enter at least URLs of thousands adult websites. Moreover, this will be useless in a month, since thousands of new sites will enter the Internet. The most reasonable, in this case, is to block websites by content. 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.
3. Not universal
Naturally, blocking websites on Google Chrome is not valid for other browsers. This may be true even for other user accounts. For example, if you blocked a website in Google Chrome under your computer account, it can be opened under a different account.
4. It can block just a website main page
Unfortunately, it's true. If you banned facebook.com, user can easily get facebook.com/ladygagathe, for example. Adding in Google Chrome all pages of an unwanted website is just unreal.
