Navigating the Policy section of the ConcealBrowse Dashboard


Policies are where you can specify websites that are deemed allowed or blocked based on your business's policy. Allowed websites are considered safe and will not go through Conceal's decision engine or be put into isolation. Blocked websites will be blocked entirely. Policies are an optional step and can be added or removed at any time. Below we will outline how to add, edit, and delete a policy, and how to audit policy changes.


Please reference this Managing ConcealBrowse Extension settings as an administrator article for settings specific to the user extension experience.



  1. Open your web browser and navigate to the Conceal Dashboard at - login if necessary.
  2. On the left-hand side go to the Policy section, or you can go to
  3. If there are already Policies in place you will see them here. The Allowed column represents if the website is Allowed or Blocked. A red X indicates he website is blocked, and a green checkmark indicates the website is not allowed (Blocked).

  4. To add a new Policy click the button labeled New Website Policy

  5. This will pop up a window for you to add the Policy. Put the website URL that you'd like to block in the Source field. In the Allow or Block dropdown box, select the appropriate action for the website.
    Note: You may use asterisks for wildcards to capture any subdomains. Placing an asterisk will tell the policy to ignore anything after the asterisk. If your policy is not working as intended, please try this method, for example CIDR notation doesn't always work. An example of using wildcards:
    This tells the policy that anything after the asterisk is to be ignored. Ex: https://websitehere:forward would also be included in this policy.
  6. Save this change by clicking the button labeled Add Policy.
  7. The change can take up to 10 minutes to take effect. Allowed websites should not be put into isolation and should behave as usual. Blocked websites will show a message letting the user know the site has been blocked.
