DNS Filter Policy

A DNS content filter, also known as a DNS filter, is a network security tool that filters and controls the content accessible by devices on a network by inspecting and managing Domain Name System (DNS) requests. DNS is the system used to translate human-readable domain names (e.g., into IP addresses, and DNS filtering works by analyzing and, if necessary, blocking or redirecting DNS requests based on predefined policies.

DNS filtering allows you to block malicious websites and filter out harmful or inappropriate content. This ensures that your LAN remains secure and allows you to have control over what users can access on networks connected to this router.

More information about the available DNS filtering options can be found under Resources → DNS Filtering.
