New Tool for Internet Filtering at Home

Beginning in May 2021, Cisco’s Umbrella Security service will be installed on all district provided student and staff devices. This provides consistent internet filtering for district devices across all networks, including home networks.

Cisco Umbrella adds a layer of protection for district iPads that improves on the content filtering and firewall protections already in place. Please keep in mind that Screen Time restrictions and home network filtering set up by families will be in addition to Cisco Umbrella filtering.

With the installation of Cisco Umbrella, district iPads will have the same content filtering at home, school, and anywhere there is internet access!

Above is the Cisco Security app that is installed on all district provided iPads. The app cannot be uninstalled on iOS version 14.2.2 and later.
