Blocking URL list in Google

The management of Google Chromebooks uses a set of URL's that block traffic to three sets of resources.
  • Internal Chrome Dialogs
  • External Search Engines
  • Local Development extensions
  • Google Sign-in sites.
The content is always updating as new resources emerge but the list below is commonly used for education.

chrome://settings/clearBrowserData-frame
chrome://plugins
chrome://flags
https://accounts.google.com/SignOutOptions
search.yahoo.com www.bing.com/search duckduckgo.com dogpile.com/search ixquick.com

The restriction to external search engines is not to protect Google business model but to ensure that 'safe search' is not easily bypassed.


A second approach blocks all chrome://* targets and then operates a whitelist.

chrome://*
chrome.google.com
https://myactivity.google.com
https://accounts.google.com/AddSession
https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?elo=1
accounts.google.com/Logout
accounts.youtube.com/accounts/Logout2

Whitelist:

chrome://print
chrome://policy
chrome://about
chrome://history
chrome://apps
chrome://media-router
