There should be one tap setting or option using which user can block any website. For example porn site, fb for minors and related.

Although its possible using Host file method. I think it will be easier for users if there is option or settings.

I would like to know opinion of others @HotCakeX What you think?

@vineydhiman You may consider using Cisco Open DNS. There is a free plan for home use and you can block websites based on category.

 

It works fine and is trusted because it's owned by Cisco

Messing with host files and browsers configuration won't work, they can be bypassed easily.

Hi,

this should be possible using Family safety feature in Edge and Microsoft account

 

https://account.microsoft.com/family/

edge://settings/familySafety

Im already aware of these methods, what I want in edge to have option to have simple one click option to disable site.

Oh, that's right :)
well I think for me those methods that are available at the moment are enough but you might have different needs of course
