    Hey, do you know how can I make a cross-platform (ios and android) application that automatically blocks websites from mobile browsers(ex. chrome, opera mini, etc)? For example in my xamarin app I input 'facebook.com' as one of the website to block, when I open a mobile browser and enter 'facebook.com' I can no longer access it. Please Help me, thank you!

    No, I don't think we can and we should do that. An App can only control items belong to itself. Why do you want to affect the browser's behavior? The browser's setting can only be modified by itself. Please be aware that each app has its own scope.

    @LandLu I am hoping to build a firewall application for children.

    @diockman You need to develop your own browser, then you can mask the text, ignore the website and do the things you want. But if you want to use chrome or safari, the answer is NO.
