There are a number of ways to block websites on your Android device, but the most effective and reliable method is to use a dedicated website blocking app. Apps like Blokada and Blockada are designed specifically for blocking websites, and they work by routing your Internet traffic through a remote server that filters out unwanted content.

If you’re looking for a more comprehensive solution, there are also a few parental control apps that can block websites on Android devices. These apps typically have other features as well, such as the ability to monitor your child’s online activity or set time limits for using certain apps.

How to Block a Website on Your Android Device Using the Hosts File

There are a few different ways to block websites on your Android device, but one of the most effective is to use the hosts file.

The hosts file is a list of IP addresses and domain names that your device consults when it wants to know where to find a certain website or server. By adding entries to this file, you can redirect traffic from specific websites to other locations – including localhost, which effectively blocks them.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Open the hosts file on your Android device. This will typically be in the /etc/ directory, but the exact location may vary depending on your device.

2. Add a new line at the bottom of the file with the following format:

IP_address domain_name

For example, to block www.example.com, you would add the following line:

127.0.0.1 www.example.com

3. Save the hosts file and exit.

How to Block a Website on Your Android Device Using a VPN

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a tool that allows you to change your IP address. This is helpful for many reasons, including bypassing website blocks. A VPN will allow you to connect to a server in another location, which will then give you a new IP address. This IP address will be from the location of the server, not your current location.

To use a VPN to block a website on your Android device:

1. Download and install a VPN app from the Google Play Store. We recommend ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

2. Open the VPN app and choose a server location. For example, if you want to block a website that is only accessible in the United States, you would connect to a server in the US.

3. Once connected, visit the website that you want to block in your browser.

4. When prompted, enter the URL of the website that you want to block.

5. Click Block Website.

How to Block a Website on Your Android Device Using DNS

If you want to block a website on your Android device, there are a few different ways you can do it. One way is to use DNS (Domain Name System) to block the site.

DNS is a network protocol that helps translate domain names (like www.google.com) into IP addresses (like 74.125.224.72). When you type in a domain name, your DNS server looks up the IP address associated with that domain and then directs your browser to that address.

You can use DNS to block a website by redirecting all requests for that site’s IP address to a different address, such as 0.0.0.0 (which means “no such address”). When your browser tries to look up the IP address for a blocked site, it will get 0.0.0.0 instead, and the site will not load.

To block a website using DNS on your Android device, you’ll need to change the DNS server settings for your Wi-Fi connection. The steps for doing this vary depending on which version of Android you’re using and which DNS service you want to use, but we’ll walk you through the process for both Android 9 and Android 10 using Google’s public DNS service (8.8.8

How to Block a Website on Your Android Device Using a Proxy

If you want to block a website on your Android device, you can use a proxy. A proxy is an intermediate server that routes traffic between your device and the internet. By routing traffic through a proxy, you can block certain websites from being accessed on your device.

To use a proxy, you will need to set up a new connection on your Android device. To do this, go to Settings -> Connections -> Add Connection. Enter the following information into the fields:

Connection Name: Proxy

Proxy Server: Enter the address of the proxy server you want to use

Port: Enter the port number of the proxy server (usually 8080)

Username: Enter your username for the proxy server (if required)

Password: Enter your password for the proxy server (if required)

Once you have entered all of the information, tap Save. Your Android device will now route all traffic through the proxy server you specified. You can add multiple proxies by repeating these steps.

How to Block a Website on Your Android Device Using Firewall

If you’re looking for a way to block a website on your Android device, there are a few different methods you can use. One way is to use a firewall. Firewalls are typically used to block incoming traffic from specific IP addresses or ranges of IP addresses.

To block a website using firewall on your Android device, you’ll need to:

1. Root your Android device. Rooting gives you access to the system files, which is necessary for this method.
2. Install a firewall app. We recommend using AFWall+.
3. Open the firewall app and add the domain or IP address of the website you want to block to the blacklist.
4. Save your changes and exit the app.
5. That’s it! The website should now be blocked on your device.
