Web Security

Due to the potential high impact of security threats, there is a dedicated Web Security section to control website access based upon categorization (Malware Sites, Phishing and Other Frauds, Proxy Avoidance and Anonymizers etc).

Select the Security category or one of its sub-categories - this allows for a more granular approach to filtering - and opt to Allow, Block or Schedule (these Action options are also available by right-clicking on the category item).

When you select an action for the Security category, the setting is automatically applied to all of its children, although each individual sub-category can be edited as required.

For an explanation of each of the categories, see Categories.
