Content filtering

Hello

 

I am trying to block sites in my network but they are not getting blocked properly. For example I put "instagram" into Settings > Content Filtering > Block Sites > Keyword > instagram . Set Keyword Blocking to "always" . Only cable connected PC is getting blocked but my other devices are accessing instagram without issues. Like my laptop with Windows 10 and my iPhone can access without restriction. What can I do?

Model: XR500| Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router

This is a Netgear setting but I believe it's because they can't block sites that use https.

Re: Content filtering

Is it possible to make integration with Websense or Untangle? with additional cost for software of course.

Re: Content filtering

The Settings are done by Netgear so that would be up to them, if you send a ticket regarding Content Filtering they could log it as a request or give you more information as to a workaround

Re: Content filtering

Well, Netgear says HTTPS is not getting blocked with this device and they don't have any plans to implement it. If I want to block it I should buy UTM device or OpenDNS filtering. Also they replied my English mail with Polish language for some unknown reason...
