To start the filtering, you need to set up the filtering policy and choose the categories of websites you wish to block using SafeDNS Dashboard. After that, all DNS requests from your network or devices are redirected to the SafeDNS servers, where each request is checked against the filtering policy rules. If a request does not belong to any blocked category and isn't on your Denylist, the IP address of the website will be returned and the web page will be opened. Otherwise, you will be redirected to the SafeDNS block page.
