The Content Filter app allows an administrator to enforce browsing policy. Policy can be enforced across all users or, group definitions can be created, allowing an admin to categorise users into groups - to be filtered uniquely based on the group policy/definition. The Content filter uses both blacklists and word association algorithms to determine suitable content based on category settings. Enabling the Content Filter app can be used to enforce company policy and/or meet regulatory compliance (eg. Children's Internet Protection Act or CIPA).
