Create Web Content Filter profile for iOS
You can stipulate websites here that the users are not permitted to access (Blacklisted URLs). Additionally, you can enable the Apple auto filter, which blocks visits to particular websites, even if they are not specifically listed in the blacklist.
If your users are only permitted to visit websites that you specify, you can define them here as bookmarks (Whitelisted bookmarks).
Make the following settings:
- Profile name: Enter a name for the profile here.
- Enable auto filter/Permitted URLs: The auto filter filters websites according to Apple’s defined criteria (Apple describes this autofilter as follows: “This function evaluates each web page as it is loaded and attempts to identify and block content not suitable for children. The search algorithm is complex and may vary from release to release, but it is basically looking for adult language, i.e. swearing and sexually explicit language.”). This will block access to particular websites, even if they are not specifically listed under Blacklisted URLs. Under Permitted URLs you can specify websites that your users are allowed to visit, even if they are blocked by the auto filter.
- Blacklisted URLs: Enter the URLs here that your users are not permitted to access.
- Whitelisted bookmarks: If you save bookmarks here, they will be added to the browser on the users’ devices. Users can then only access websites that appear on the Whitelist.
You’ll find out here how to distribute the new profile (see section Assign profile).
