In this video, you’ll learn how to block access to social media websites using FortiGuard categories. You’ll need an active license for FortiGuard Web Filtering services. Web filtering with FortiGuard categories allows you to take action against a group of websites in a certain category. In this example, you’ll learn how to block websites that fall into the social media category. Computers on your internal network will not have access to any websites that are fall into Fortiguard’s social media category.
