WEB FILTERING feature enhancement

Submitted by - a month ago
Status: New Idea

Maybe ubiquiti can add more option in the usg to block websites aside from utilizing dpi filter. Its not powerful enought since its only blocking by limited categories. Please consider like adding keywork blocking/static url filtering/etc. Other firewalls have this as fundamental feature long time already and considering the prices of usg pro and usg xg from the other enteprise firewalls, its unreasonable to have this feature not included.

You can do static url filtering (for Ads at least) with something like this.

HowTo: Ad blocking using dnsmasq.d instead of /etc/hosts

 

How a user can implement such a great feature that has been asked for, but Ubiquiti can't, is beyond me.
