A Bark Super Admin may wish to review a web browsing report for the network due to troubleshooting an unexpected block, ensuring new filter rules are acting as expected, or maintenance (by seeing the top blocked sites accessed by students).

With the DNS Web Filter, the super admin of Bark for Schools can view the web browsing activity on the network by doing the following:

STEP 1: Click on Web filters in your Bark dashboard drop-down menu.

STEP 2: Scroll down to the Policies section and select the DNS filter you're interested in.

If you notice that a domain is miscategorized, click on the category to suggest a new category for it. This will go straight to our team for review! In the meantime, you can add that domain to your DNS filter exceptions.
