Modern MacBook computers come with built-in parental controls only accessible from an administrator account. With these controls enabled, you can block websites on Safari, Firefox or other web browsers on your computer. If you want to unblock the controlled websites, you need an administrator account password to access the parental controls on a MacBook.
