How Do I Setup Web Filtering on a Group of MacBooks or iMacs

Overview

If you are a school or business and wish to deploy Mobicip's web filter on your macOS computers, follow the steps below.

Note: If you're a parent setting up parental controls on Mac for your family, head to this article instead.

Enterprise Account Setup

Create a Mobicip Enterprise account at mobicip.com/enterprise. This account is distinct from a Mobicip family or consumer account. Let us know the registered email address so we can add the licenses to your account.

Once licenses are setup and you receive a confirmation, login at mobicip.com and select Filter Profiles from the menu. Setup one or more filter profiles, one for each group of devices that will share the same filtering settings. For instance, you may want to setup a profile for each classroom, team or sub-group within a classroom.

  •  Using any browser, login at mobicip.com.
  •  Select Filter Profiles from the menu.

  • For the filter profile you wish to edit, click the edit icon next to the filtering level.
