The easiest way to block (or “blacklist”) a list of URLs is to create a custom category and recategorize the URLs you want to block into that category.
On the Policy Management > Filter Components > Edit Categories > Add Category page add a category name, description and parent category (optional).
Enter the sites (URLs or IP addresses) that you want to add to this category.You can also edit this list after creating the category.
Select Block as the default filtering Action to apply to this category in all existing category filters.
Enable any desired Advanced Filtering actions (optional). Then click OK to cache your changes. Changes are not implemented until you click Save All. Subscribe and download all of our blacklists today.
