How Do I Setup Web Filtering on a Group of Windows Laptops or Computers

Overview

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

Note: If you're a parent setting up parental controls on Windows 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 to setup filter profile 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.

  •  Select Filter Profiles from the menu.

Filter profiles menu

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

  • Select the filtering level and save your selection.

Mobicip for Windows - Request Custom Build

You are probably in touch with Mobicip regarding a quote or free trial already. Just contact support and request a custom build of Mobicip for Windows. Share your Mobicip account credentials so we can automate the login step during deployment.

Deployment Without Active Directory Integration

Install the custom build on each Windows computer. You may create one image that includes the custom build and install the image on each of the computers.

On each computer, launch Mobicip and map the Windows users on that computer to the appropriate filter profile in your Mobicip account.

Deployment With Active Directory Integration

Before deploying Mobicip, install the Mobicip Active Directory app on one of the networked computers. Launch the app and map your user directory to the appropriate Mobicip filter profile.
