Safe Internet for

Tailor your guest WiFi to your visitors and patrons’ needs

Using SafeDNS

DNS-layer filtering

DNS filtering is the most comprehensive web filtering technique. It blocks unwanted sites altogether before users access them. DNS filtering blocks both HTTP and HTTPS sites. DNS filtering is indispensable for blocking malicious sites, as over 90% of malware uses DNS to carry out malicious campaigns

Category-based filtering

SafeDNS users decide which categories of content to block or allow on their network. We provide 61 SafeDNS categories to choose from.

High precision filtering

To deliver users an exceptionally accurate web filtering, the company uses its own web categorization database with 109M sites, distributed in 5 dozen content categories. With the database information we analyze each DNS query from SafeDNS-protected devices to define what content categories the requested site belongs to. The queries for sites from user allowed categories are successfully resolved into IP addresses of the requested sites. Otherwise, SafeDNS shows users a service block page – instead of the requested site from user blocked categories

Reliably family-friendly WiFi

No worries for parents with kids who connect to your guest WiFi with the SafeDNS web filtering service on. Block the web content family people do not want their children see – pornographic, adult, gross, explicit, and vulgar sites.

Malware & phishing-free WiFi

A SafeDNS-protected WiFi prevents its users from accessing malicious and phishing sites which can severely damage users’ devices, steal personal and corporate info. To protect your WiFi users against these cyber threats, filter out all security-related categories of content in the SafeDNS service management panel.

No complaints of inappropriate use of guest WiFi

With us, you can easily block any dangerous and unwanted content so you keep your visitors happy and get no complaints. Choose which content categories to block or allow from the 61 SafeDNS categories.

Fast & easy deployment

Start filtering the guest WiFi in minutes. There’s no need for any additional hardware or software. Just redirect DNS queries of your WiFi network users to SafeDNS filtering servers to be resolved according to your own filtering rules.

Centralized filtering management

Manage your filtering settings and access filtering service stats for any and all of your APs and locations from the centralized Service Dashboard. Use it to create filtering policies, manage and fine tune the filtering settings as you see fit.

WiFi usage stats

Check detailed filtering stats and reports to keep an eye on the online activity on your wireless network. As a guest WiFi owner, you may find the filtering stats useful to better learn your audiences. This knowledge will help to target advertising campaigns more precisely.

Easy implementation

The SafeDNS 100% cloud service supports any device and IP, third-party DNS services and can be configured on APs, WiFi routers and other WiFi network equipment.

Scalability

No limit on the number of users and on scaling the filtering. When launching new WiFi hotspots, you will be able to add them to the filtering by purchasing more SafeDNS licenses.

WiFi policy enforcement

Multi-policy filtering

You can filter the internet differently for your guest WiFi users. For a multi-layer web access management, create as many filtering policies within your wireless network as you need. On all the policies block the content you do not want your WiFi users to see.

Protection against child abuse content

Ensure your WiFi users access no sites with child sexual abuse images and videos – block the 2 dedicated filtering categories SafeDNS provides. Both these categories contain this heinous content – from the IWF Child Abuse Image Content List, which SafeDNS receives as IWF Member and from a list compiled by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, as part of its Project Arachnid.

Anti-extremism protection

Filter out terrorism-promoting content which poses threat to young and adult minds alike. To protect users against terror-related content, SafeDNS adds a list of sites, compiled by Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit run by the Metropolitan Police, UK to a filtering category, named 'Hate & Discrimination'.

Regulation compliance

Get rid of illegal content so that your WiFi complies with the regulation, concerning filtering out pornography, sexual abuse content. With a couple of clicks guest WiFi owners in Germany can block illegal sites from a list, maintained by Federal Department for media harmful to young persons (BpjM).

Filtering customization

Intelligent white- or blacklisting and fully customizable service block pages will all be available to you. In the white and black lists you can add sites to be excluded from any filtering rules. Personalize the service block pages to let your guests WiFi users know why this or that site is blocked. To tailor the page to any audience’s needs, you can create an individual block page per each filtering policy.
