Overall Satisfaction with Securly Filter

We have Securly Filter for our whole organization. We are an independent preK-12 school that has iPads in all classrooms K-5, and 1 to 1 in 6-12. Securly really does a wonderful job filtering content on the internet and keeping us inline with COPA conformity!
  • For education, it is setup for blocking the right type of sites, we do not want students on, right out of the "box".
  • The management is easily integrated with Google for Education users.
  • You do not have to have an Active Directory to use Securly effectively!!
  • If you have mobile devices 1 to 1, this is your best filter period!!
  • Really nothing comes to mind. Everything about this product I love!!
  • No work around or internet proxy filter bypassing.
  • Students have no ability to remove the filter from device
  • It gives us insight into the things students are searching for in search engines and alerts us to things that are not appropriate.
  • It just works with limited management input!!
Securly [Filter] is designed with Education in mind and the other products I have used are not that way. I had to block porn and adult content on all other setups. Securly has those blocked from the start. Education web-sites are complex and and Securly handles that with ease!

Do you think Securly Filter delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Securly Filter's feature set?


Did Securly Filter live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Securly Filter go as expected?


Would you buy Securly Filter again?


As I stated earlier, if you have iPads in a 1 to 1 usage, [Securly Filter] is your best filter. Students cannot break it or mess with any settings on a device that has an MDM setup.
