Create Web Content Filter profile for iOS

You can stipulate websites here that the users from supervised devices 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).

configure profile Web Content Filter

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. 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 Assigning profiles).
