Re: how i can block facebook in my laptop HP ENVY14

Hi,

 

Facebook blocking, that is, the blocking of a particular URL or website is a function of your browser (or possibly your Security Software) and not usually a function of your Windows setup.

 

  • Internet Explorer

How to block Facebook in Internet Explorer

1. Open Internet Explorer and click Tools
2. Click Internet Options and then click on the Content tab
3. Click the Enable button
4. Click on the Approved Sites tab
5. Enter facebook.com in the box
6. Click Never and then OK
7. In the appeared window enter and confirm your new password
8. Click on the General tab and make sure to select Users can see websites that have no ratings
9. Click OK

How to block Facebook

 

 

  • Chrome

This next website shows one how to block websites for a set time frame, which might be a nice thing to do.  The article mentions the Chrome browser and the Website Browser Extension

 

Reference:

How to Block Facebook, Twitter, Email for Few Hours Daily

 

 

  • Mozilla Firefox can use an Extension called BlockSite 0.7.1.1

If you are running Firefox, go to Add-ons, Search for more Extensions, and use keywords "block url" or "blocksite"

 

 

  • Avast Internet Security

 

If you are running Avast (full version, at least) , you can block any URL, website, IP address.  Just don't allow it access.

 

I hope this helps.
