Removing the Filter Policy/Rules (optional)

If applicable, you can remove the filtering rules/policies on your dashboard by following the instructions below. However, if you'd like to keep your rules saved for whenever you re-install the web filter in the future, then skip this section.

STEP 1: Click on the top right menuWeb Filters > See All Filters.

NOTE: Only users with Bark Super Admin status can access the Web Filter policies page.

STEP 2: On this screen, you'll see all filters that had been previously set up.
Within each window, you'll see an option to Delete this filter. This will delete that particular ruleset from the account.
