    6. Confirm the password
    7. Tap the websites in Authorized Content
    8. Tap on Limit Content for adults in the Permitted Websites section
    9. Select Add a website in never allow
    10. Enter the URL to block in the field
    11. Click Finish

    must repeat the same process for each site you want to block. Note that mobile sites will have to be blocked separately from sites on the Web as the case of www.youtube.com , m.youtube.com.

    If a blocked site still opens, copy the URL to the Safari address bar and paste it into the restrictions.

    9. Select Add Web Site
    10. Enter the URL of the site you want to authorize
