When using your own router with Kibosh 360 you’ll need to install a small agent somewhere on your network. This agent keeps your WAN IP in sync with Kibosh 360 filtering servers so that your Web Filter Setting rules are always applied correctly (whitelist, blacklist, categories, timed filters, logs, etc).
If your WAN IP changes these settings will stop working.
NOTE: At no time will the actual filtering of pornography (domain blocking, SafeSearch enforcement, term blocking) ever stop. Only the web filter settings could be affected.
So although the agent works fine, it’s not a good long-term solution because at some point, usually when you need it most, it will fail due to a myriad of potential reasons (software is complicated).
The Kibosh Pulse easily attaches to your router, registers in your MyFilter Dashboard, and your done. You’ll never need to worry about your web filter settings, or anything else on the Internet.
The Pulse device eliminates the need for any software, and is the superior long-term solution, because at some point the software will usually stop working, for whatever reason, right when you need it most.
