Add ability to block ALL apps, including Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge cannot be blocked like other apps can. This allows access to the internet and blocking options within the app are insufficient and do not adequately protect kids from inappropriate material.

        I particularly don't like mixer . Users should be able to remove this from profiles of children.

        Yes, I'd like to be able to block certain games and apps on my parent/adult account, or require my passcode to open or download them. My son has a child account, but it won't let him play multiplayer in games like Black Ops 4, Battlefield 5 or Rainbow 6 Siege because the developer/publisher restricts it based on his age. I made the decision to let him play the multiplayer in those games, so he uses an adult account quite a bit. I just don't want him free access to YouTube, the Edge Browser and other more mature games.

        It would be nice to have an option to require a password or passkey to open an internet browser application on a primary or parent account.

        I agree that i should be able to block or remove the edge browser app. We will likely get rid of our xbox due to this.
