Internet Filtering for WiFi HotspotsHome / Security Articles / Internet Filtering for WiFi Hotspots
Internet filtering for WiFi hotspots helps to provide a safe browsing experience for your customers and protects their devices from web-borne threats in an era when many people are concerned about their online security. There are also several commercially-viable reasons why your business should consider implementing a filtered WiFi Internet service.
An establishment offering a filtered WiFi Internet service is likely to attract customers who are concerned about going online in an unprotected environment. Furthermore, the analytics collected by the service can provide an insight into customers´ browsing activities, allowing your business to tailor customer-friendly promotions.
When you implement a filtered WiFi Internet service, you have control over the websites that your customers can visit. This means that, if you are trying to create a family-friendly environment, you can block customers from viewing material that other customers may find offensive. You can also use Internet filtering for WiFi hotspots to prevent customers from visiting unsafe websites that may have been compromised with malware.
This is achieved by a series of category filters, keyword filters and blacklists. You set what categories you wish to block, and fine-tune your selection using the keyword filters. What a customer clicks on a link to visit a website - or types in a URL - the request is checked against the settings you have entered and a blacklist of websites known to harbor malware. If the customer´s request is denied, they will receive a message telling them why.
Internet filtering for WiFi hotspots is quick to set up, easy to manage, and the good name your business will get for providing a safe online environment makes the implementation of Internet filtering for WiFi hotspots commercially viable. Although word should get around that you offer a filtered WiFi Internet service, it is an asset that you should take advantage of in your marketing in order to attract customers from any establishment offering an unprotected WiFi Internet service.
You should also be able to attract customers by hosting promotions based on their browsing activities. Although most people choose to browse the Internet anonymously, you will still be able to determine which websites are most frequently visited, and what your customers like to do while they are online. This is another feature of Internet filtering for WiFi hotspots that can justify any expense your business incurs by implementing a filtered WiFi service for your customers.
