How do I block Snapchat & websites on S5 Galaxy?

I've set parental control to less than teen.  So Snapchat doesn't show up in playstore.

How do I block other sources for downloading/installing that app?  How do I block a specific website?

WalkGoodPhil, I can understand wanting to have controls to help limit what your children can do with a smartphone. I'm glad you started with the parental controls on the device itself. To expand on those control's I'd recommend taking a look at Verizon Smart Family.

 

If you click on the following link, you can learn more about Smart Family and the controls: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/verizon-smart-family-faqs/

 

Content Filtering will be the best method to control what your child can view on the device. The section of the FAQ dedicated to Content Filtering has instructions on how you can block specific websites with Smart Family in Question #4 of that section.

 

Let me know what additional questions you have about Smart Family, and parental controls you can use with an S5.

Hello WalkGoodPhil,

 

I know how important it is to be able to monitor your child's cell phone and block unwanted content. We have a great tool to help you out. Verizon Smart Family let's you know where your kids are by tracking their device and allows you to limit what they see by setting content filters. These filters can include Social Media (Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Musical.ly and more) and blocking specific websites. Check out this link for full details: http://spr.ly/6584Eu8my
