QUESTION

If I block Facebook via the Content Filter, it works for http but not for https. We still can access Facebook via https. What can I do to block https://www.facebook.com?

ANSWER

Content Filter is used to block URLs. If we set up Facebook in the black list, it can only reject the traffic of http. We have to use AppPatrol to block the traffic of https://www.facebook.com.
