PureVPN URL Filtering is an innovative feature that screens webpages to determine whether some or all of it should be blocked. The URL Filtering solution scans websites that are likely to include undesirable advertising, explicit content, spyware, viruses, and other malicious forms of content.
With URL Filtering protecting your Internet activities, you can experience safer and trouble-free online surfing.
The Internet is home to millions of parents, employers, and people from other walks of life. Each user has a different need when it comes to exploring the Internet.
For instance, parents want to keep their children safe from online profanity or explicit content without depriving them of their Internet freedom.
Similarly, employers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on running their company or organization. Hence, they can’t afford to watch their employees indulge in unnecessary Internet activities such as social networking or video chatting during office hours.
In fact, an employer would never want an employee visiting malicious URLs that would end up infecting the network of the company and resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage.
The URL Filtering technology by PureVPN is built to cater such Internet users, enabling them to gain total control of the browsing activities of every device connected to the network.
With PureVPN URL Filtering, you get:
Believe it or not, some children often end up on adult or sexually explicit websites unintentionally. As a parent, it is your utmost responsibility to keep your children away from such content.
Apart from pornography, illegal drugs usage and early exposure to weapons have also become a growing concern amongst parents. Therefore, it is essential for parents to use URL Filtering to prevent their children from indulging in any inappropraite activity online.
The ingenious functionality of our URL Filtering feature has been created keeping families in mind. Smart filters scrutinize pages to discard any content that is not family friendly. Now, you never have to worry about your kids coming across any age-inappropriate content while browsing the Internet.
Cybercriminals have become more adept at developing new malwares at a rapid pace. In fact, now and then we hear about new ransomwares hitting organizations across the globe and demanding ransom against their precious data.
Ransomware aside, there are also social engineering attacks that hit unsuspecting employees and as a result, breach the sensitive data of a company. Although employers can create protocols on how the information will be used, but it doesn’t guarantee 100% security because there’s always room for human error.
PureVPN’s URL Filtering solution can prevent users from ending up on malicious websites. The filter is loaded with an up-to-date list of inappropriate and malicious websites that could harm a device or a network once accessed.
More than half of employees waste their time on social media during office hours. In fact, according to Forbes, employees waste 2 to 3 hours on non-productive activities. The non-work related activities usually include streaming content, using social networking websites, watching inappropriate content, etc.
Such activities not only chop down employees’ productivity in half but also increase HR related issues such as disciplining an employee.
Regardless, the HR can’t completely curb the problem with an acceptable usage policy alone. After all, monitoring every online activity of dozens of employees means resource allocation and more manpower for monitoring to name a few.
But you don’t need to waste your time and resources on monitoring employee’s Internet activities. The URL Filtering feature can be used to restrict the Internet activities of the employee without the need for constant surveillance. The feature will help curb the HR problems as well as increase productivity.
