  6. Go to Exclusions to configure website access permissions.

  7. Enter your URL and select Block or Allow in the neighboring field.

    Note

    To block a specific domain, you can use the URL of the specific website or, you can use the format *.domain.type, where:

    • domain specifies the domain name.

    • type designates the top-level domain (TLD) e.g. (.com, .net).

  8. Click Save.

    Note

    Make sure that the Scan HTTPS option from the Traffic section in Content Control is checked, otherwise https websites will continue being blocked after excluding them from Web Access Control.

    Important

    In case Content Control does not block websites, make sure you clear the browser's cache on endpoints. If no traffic is made and the content is served locally, the security agent has nothing to scan.
