    Is there a way to block a website on WP8? I want to put some time-wasting sites on a blacklist, but I'm not sure if there is a way. The best I've done so far is add it to my block list on my router, but this doesn't work over 4g.

    I'd like to prevent myself from accessing certain time-wasting sites, like reddit. I don't mind if it's a phone-wide solution, or only on the browser.

    Haha. I've also unsuccessfully tried to block reddit on my computer. I waste so much time on that site.

    If I could block reddit maybe I would get some work done.. But honestly, what a daft question, just don't go to whatever site you want blocked.. Porn much at work?

    Well, on windows, open up Notepad in admin mode and open the hosts file. Add the line

    127.0.0.1 www.reddit.com

    On the phone, SOL there bud... for now.
