What is the Web Filter

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff & students

Edinburgh Napier University filters all web access to protect students and staff from information that is offensive, abusive, discriminatory, illegal to possess, or contravening University regulations.

Web filtering is also used to protect university devices from malicious software downloads.
The web filter is configured with a policy which prevents access to certain categories of website, as well as preventing the downloading of content from sites which are known to be dangerous.
