iBoss Filter

iBoss Filter Information

The iBoss filter is used to filter Internet content outside of school network on the chromebooks. Beckman Catholic has two configurations setup for the iBoss, "During School Hours" and "Outside of School Hours". The "During School Hours" is more restrictive, filtering inappropriate content as well as categories such as social media and video streaming. The "Outside of School Hours" continues to filter inappropriate content but is less restrictive on social media and video streaming. Social Media sites are again filtered after 10 pm on school nights and 11 pm on weekends. iBoss restricts Chromebook login after midnight to 5:00 am every day. Below is a listing of categories and the "Allow/Block" setting in iBoss for both configurations. Chromebooks connected in school on the school network are filtered by the Fortinet internet filter.
