How do I locate browser history in the ORBI menu? I'd like to block certain URLs.

How can I block a URL or two in the Orbi menu? I have been looking for a history window and haven't found one. Home network. Windows 7. Orbi has latest version of firmware.

You can block URL’s on the web GUI under >> ADVANCED >> Security >> Block Sites
You can block the sites always or according to a time schedule.
You can also use Circle to do the same per user.

What "history" are you looking for?

 

Your Orbi does not remember sites that you visited. That is down to the browser.

 

Just another user.

Otherwise you can also use Circle to see history of visited sited by all devices per user:

That's not Orbi.

 

Circle?

Yes Circle is an ”extension” to Orbi Smiley Happy

You mean a paid for add on!

 

Not something I have been tempted to pay for. Like Armor!

The History part and also the blocking of URL's and the blocking of services are part of the basic free Cirlcle package included when you buy Orbi. Smiley Happy

Once again Netgear manages to confuse the picture.

 

There is the paid for Disney Circle that has been around for some time. Now we have a free variant to sit alongside the free Parental Controls!

 

I'm glad don't have kids to police.
