Commonwealth Web Content Filtering Service

Web content filtering is the practice of blocking access to web content that may be deemed offensive, inappropriate, or even dangerous.

Web filtering is a technology which stops users from viewing certain URLs or websites by preventing their browsers from loading pages from these sites.

In general, Web filters work in two distinct ways. They can block content as determined by quality of the site, by consulting known lists which document and categorize popular pages across all genres of content. Or, they can evaluate the content of the page live and block it accordingly.
