Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A ROAMING CLIENT?
A Roaming Client is a tiny piece of software that is installed on a device, where it always runs in the background. It’s primary job is to do two things:
1) Ensure all device DNS requests go to DNSFilter where they can be protected and filtered
2) Embeds the device identity in the DNS requests.
WHY WOULD I WANT TO USE ROAMING CLIENT?
Customers primarily use Roaming Clients to ensure that devices are protected and filtered when they leave your secure network, enforce device level policies (like different policies for IT managers or executives) and to get device level reporting (since the device ID is embedded in the DNS request).
WHAT KINDS OF DEVICES CAN YOU INSTALL ROAMING CLIENT ON?
In short, any device! Roaming clients can be installed on Windows, Mac, Chrome, iOS or Android devices. Due to Apple policies, iOS devices must be in “Supervised Mode” which means they won’t work with “Bring your own device” setups.
