==\\ How it works //==
When using the browser, students login with their regular network credentials. The Lightspeed Mobile Filter Browse communicates requests from the Android Device to your local Lightspeed server. In turn, the Lightspeed server references the URL requests with its content database and either allows the request to be processed or sends a blocking and redirect message to the user.
In this way, Acceptable Use Policies are consistently enforced for users—whether attached to the local network or not.
Lightspeed Mobile Filters are also available for PCs and Macs.
