Bark for Schools offers our DNS web filter and Chrome extension web filter to schools for free, but there may be an occasion where removal of the filter becomes necessary:

  • Changes to network configuration renders the filter invalid
  • Clean slate policy wipe for new filters
  • Discontinuing filter use
  • Testing for network impact

**G Suite users, please see Section 2 for additional instructions on how to remove the Chrome web filter extension**

Section 1


To get started with removing the filter, access your dashboard here:

On this screen, you'll see all filters that had been previously set up.
Within each window, you'll see an option to "delete this filter":


Once you click "Delete this filter" if you're on the DNS web filter, no additional steps are necessary.
