This article explains how to allow or disallow websites in Kids Mode in the Microsoft Edge browser.

The Microsoft Edge browser is the default browser in Windows 11. However, users can switch to their preferred or favorite browser anytime. Edge is based on Chromium, similar to Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers today.

Edge has a Kids Mode feature that provides a convenient browsing mode inside Microsoft Edge designed for kids.

Below is how to add or remove websites from the allow list in Kids Mode in the Microsoft Edge browser.
