Bark for Schools offers our DNS and Chrome extension web filters 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
NOTE: G Suite users, please see Section 2 for additional instructions on how to remove the Chrome web filter extension, if applicable.
