Blacklist

Requires version 2.0.40 or higher

The blacklist function (not to be confused with a whitelist) can be used to block access to specified websites. For example, you may have the Kiosk homepage set as your company webpage with multiple external links such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. You may wish to permit access everything except youtube, this is far simpler with a blacklist than a whitelist since you only need to specify one URL to block.


By default the blacklist is disabled, if the whitelist function is enabled any blacklist settings are ignored.


To enable the blacklist:
Go to Settings > Whitelist/Blacklist > tap "Enable Blacklist". By default no sites are blacklisted when enabled.
To enter denied URLs tap "Blacklisted URLs", remember to separate multiple websites with a comma.






Examples
All sub-domains:
Deny any URL containing "google.com"
No sub-domains:
Deny any URL containing "www.google.com"
Specific URL:
Deny any URL containing "http://www.google.com/images"


Troubleshooting

Lots of websites redirect from domain.com to m.domain.com (or similar) when viewing from a mobile device, so you need to understand how the website redirects in such scenarios in order to blacklist correctly.


If you still can't understand which URL is being allowed then turn on "Troubleshoot Whitelist/Blacklist", this will display a message with the allowed URL each time an attempt is made to load a page.
