Removing the DNS or Chrome Web Filters: Bark for Schools


Bark for Schools offers our DNS and Chrome extension web filters to schools for free, but there may be an occasion where removal of the filter becomes necessary:

  • Changes to network configuration renders the filter invalid
  • Clean slate policy wipe for new filters
  • Discontinuing filter use
  • Testing for network impact

NOTE: G Suite users, please see Section 2 for additional instructions on how to remove the Chrome web filter extension, if applicable.
