Free Cloud Filter to the end of the school year

For those schools using Chromebooks and who are without remote filtering at this time we can provide them with Cloud Filter, free of charge, to the school year. This will enable them to monitor and protect their Chromebooks from harmful online content while students are at home.

Requiring no on-premise software, set up is simple and quick. It will allow your schools to see browsing activity and identify children who may be at risk – children who may otherwise go unnoticed.
