Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter

Note: The Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter is no longer supported for Web Filter 3. Please upgrade to the latest Web Filter release candidate in order to use the new Web Filter for Google Chrome Extension.

Version 1.0.2 of the Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter is now available.

The Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter was designed specifically for customers who currently use SSL certificates generated by a Certificate Authority (CA) with their Rocket appliance for mobile filtering. Recent changes to the way Google has been handling certification have led to the occurrence of potential errors in our current Chrome Mobile Filter extension for customers who are using a certificate generated by a Certificate Authority when handling HTTPS traffic.

The Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter has been developed to solve this issue. All Lightspeed customers who utilize Certificate Authority issued certificates MUST use the Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter extension, and NOT the regular Chrome Mobile Filter extension.

Note: Cloud Filter customers MUST use the Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter extension. 

Note: Customers should only be running one extension at time. Customers who are currently running the Chrome Mobile Filter and are upgrading to the Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter MUST  remove the Chrome Mobile Filter extension through their Google Admin Console. 

Note: Customers who use the default certificate or a self-signed certificate should continue to use the Chrome Mobile Filter.

You can find the Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter in the Chrome Web Store. You can push the Chrome Lightspeed S-Mobile Filter to all of your users through the Google Admin Console.
