Account-level monitoring

Web filtering

Our available web filters are designed with the needs of schools in mind, allowing you to block categories, specific sites, and review web filter reports for insights. We offer two options to choose from:

  • Chrome web filtering extension: deployed to student accounts via Chrome extension settings (G Suite) or via Microsoft Group Policy or Intune MDM (Office 365). This is a great option for remote learning.
  • DNS filter: deployed to school network via DNS. This is a great option for on-campus learning.

For more details on the web filters, check out our web filtering FAQ.
