HTTP query redirection category

HTTP query redirection category

The HTTP query redirection category includes web resources serving a mediator for downloading content from other web resources via special web applications which serve as means of:

  • Bypassing access restrictions to certain URLs or IP-addresses.
  • Granting anonymized access to web resources, including web resources that intentionally reject HTTP-requests from certain IP addresses or groups of Ips (for example, by country of origin).
  • Accessing any web resources implementing functionality similar to the one described above.

Priority: High

Pros: Blocking prevents a child accessing restricted/banned websites using so-called “session anonymizers” or “proxies”.

Cons: none

Recommendations: Parents are required to block this category in order to prevent a child from bypassing Parental Control.
