Mobile Filter

r3-00332

 

Mobile filtering is a feature of our Web Filter that provides for cross-platform filtering on Mac, iOS, Windows, Android, and Linux operating systems.

Mobile filtering is delivered in several ways:

  • With a Rocket on your network, any mobile devices that connect to the Internet through your school network are filtered
  • Off-network filtering is provided through mobile filter agents, kernel-level filters, browser replacements, and the global proxy option

This section controls basic Web Filter behavior for mobile devices using the Mobile Filter.

Field Name Description
Mobile Registration Enable this feature to require users to enter credentials and register their devices with the web filter. We recommend enabling this feature for 1:1 deployments
Note: If a user (not registered to the device) logs in to the device, their web activity reports as the user registered to the device.

Registration occurs one-time, but Administrators can delete the device(s) associated with users, thus requiring users to enter their credentials and re-register the device. Refer to our documentation for deleting devices in the Web Filter.

Mobile Bypass Select this checkbox to allow unfiltered Internet access for mobile devices when the Mobile Filter on the device is unable to communicate with your management server.
