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 dozens of 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 children of any age – from pre-schoolers to tweens and teens – who connect to your venue WiFi with the SafeDNS web filtering service on. Block the content family people do not want their children see – adult, gross, explicit, and vulgar sites.

Malware & phishing-free WiFi

The SafeDNS-protected WiFi prevents its users from accessing malicious and phishing sites which can severely damage users’ devices, steal personal and corporate info. To reach the goal, filter out all security-related categories of content in the SafeDNS service management panel.

Fast & easy deployment

Start filtering your 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 Dashboard to create filtering policies, manage and fine tune the filtering as you see fit.

No complaints of inappropriate use of your WiFi

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

WiFi usage stats

Check detailed filtering stats and reports to keep an eye on the online activity on your wireless network. As a public WiFi provider, you may find the filtering stats useful to better learn your audiences, especially the new ones, for targeting advertising campaigns more precisely.

WiFi policy enforcement

Use SafeDNS to manage access to your WiFi network and enforce your internet use policy for individual staff members, groups of them or network-wide. For a multi-layer web access management, create as many filtering policies within your organization as you need.

Regulation compliance

Block any illegal content so that your WiFi complies with the regulation, concerning filtering out pornography, adult and child abuse sites. Public WiFi providers in Germany can block illegal sites from a list, maintained by Federal Department for media harmful to young persons (BpjM).

Protection against child abuse content

Ensure your users never access child sexual abuse images and videos – block the 2 dedicated filtering categories. Both these categories contain the similar illegal content – from the IWF Child Abuse Image Content List, which SafeDNS receives as IWF Member and 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'.

Safe mode for Google, Bing & YouTube

Enable SafeSearch Mode for Google and Bing and Restricted Mode for YouTube out of your personal Service Dashboard. In these modes gross and explicit content is blocked from the search results and videos, marked as inappropriate for kids by YouTubers, are filtered out.

Ad blocking

To get rid of distraction and further improve your clients’ online safety, filter out web ads. They are a nuisance and pose additional threat as bad actors use the ads for malware propagation.
