    Web monitor = monitor no block feature in that solution.
    Can I block sites with Web Monitor?

    No. Web Monitor is for monitoring web activity only. In order to modify or block web content Web Filter is required.

    Use Web Filter - there's a 14 day trial

    Web Filter = Web Monitor + ability to block

    Web filter Lite has not been maintained the last years so the DB and functionality were not there.
    So they opted to drop it and create a monitor function.

    If that is to move ppl to try to sell Web Filter (Paid) version more or just to keep expectations on the product in reality to what it is.
    Many thought that it was working more and better than it was/is.


    So yes you need use web filter paid to block web traffic.

    Also the web monitor reports can be used to justify the full product. It was a bold move.
