  • Allow List Only: Can access only websites a parent has added to the Allow list via Xbox.com.
  • Designed for Children: Includes the previous, and allows access to websites designed for children while blocking adult sites.
  • General Interest: Includes all the previous, and allows access to general interest websites while blocking adult sites.
  • Basic Communication: Includes all the previous, and allows social networking, web chat and web mail while blocking adult sites.
  • Warn on Adult: Allows access to all content, but shows a warning before browsing to adult sites.
