How to block YouTube on my mobile phone?



  • AppBlock: OK (4.4/5 stars) but expensive?
  • AirDroid Parental Control
  • Boring Phone → I didn't understand it (in 15seconds)
  • Freedom
  • Lessphone
  • Mobicip - A parental control app. Maybe better than Google Parental Control
  • Stay Focused: Site/App Blocker - 4.3/5 stars.


  • Block in the router at home
  • Digital wellbeing - Very limited: You can just reverse the settings
  • Google Parental Control
  • Get in the habit of not having my phone with me all the time
  • Something like Pluckeye: That blocks can be cancelled, but that it takes time before it becomes active. This way, I do have control, but time is the blocking device.
  • Use Screen time settings: Doesn't seem to work as you can change settings any moment

Freedom (app)

  • Freedom uses sesions in which blockings are active. In the free trial, you have 7 such sessions. Subsequently, you have to pay
  • It's easy to add YouTube to the list of blocked adds
  • After starting a session, it seems I can still just uninstall Freemdom. Let's wait until a later session to verify that
  • Reviews are quite mixed in their feedback.

Google Parental Control

  • This only works if parent & child/teenager have Gmail accounts that are in the same country
  • I don't really like it.
