Custom Allowed and Blocked Lists
Custom Allowed and Blocked lists, can be used independently or in combination with the URL Category Filter. URL entries in the Allowed List are always accessible, while entries in the Blocked List will ensure that users will have no access to these sites.
When used in combination with category-based web filtering, the Allowed List can additionally be used to whitelist (allow) individual URLs that may otherwise be blocked in a category. The Blocked list will limit access to sites that are allowed by a category.
