Recommendation for Norton Family - Website Block Category

I recommend adding a website block Category for Android apps.

I would like to setup a cell phone for my child with the Android apps I feel are appropriate and then my child can ask me to install others as needed, instead of the children adding whatever apps they want from websites.   I know I can use Norton App Lock to block Google Play Store app and I can put in the Google Play Store web address in the block list, but there seems to be a lot of other sites that offer Android apps.  Too many to block them all with the block list, but would be nice if there was a category that I could just check the box and block them all..

Hi davidsonya,

Thanks for the valuable feedback.  I want to make sure I understand you correctly.  Are you suggesting we should have a option that allows parents to block all apps what were downloaded from Google Play?

Thanks

Re: Recommendation for Norton Family - Website Block Category

Hi Katie,

No, I would like to see a Category added to the Blocked Categories page for blocking sites that offer Android Apps for download/install.

Location of the web page I'm talking about:  Norton Family > House Rules > House Rules SettingsBlocked Categories

Like the other Blocked Categories that Norton Family already offers,  like Mature Content, Social Networking, Web Mail, etc..  I would like to see a Category for Android Apps.  So to prevent my child from going to any of the many sites on the Internet that offer Android Apps for downloading and allowing them to install any apps they want on his/her phone/tablet.  I would rather my child come to me when they want to install an app, so I can understand what the app does and how they plan to use it.

I know I can add each site's address manually, but I believe there are too many of those type of sites and would take for ever.  

Try Googling "android app sites" to see how many sites there are out there.

Thanks!
