  • Block Site also comes with a plethora of additional options, which can help you password protect the add-on that can be very useful for parental controls. If your kids too, use your computer, you can set a password, so that your kids can never access any websites in the blacklist, and you or anybody else can access it, only with a password. The password can also be used to stop unauthorized persons, or your kids, from changing any settings within Block Site and stop them from bypassing the restrictions.
