3. Verification and done!
Technological remark: Due to how Web browsers work, please restart your Web browser or clear its cache, so that unwanted Web content can be blocked immediately. For example, if you just (accidently) visited the pornography site www.pornhub.com, and you have configured Armor to use the HappyKids filter, FiregateCS might not block www.pornhub.com until after the browser has been restarted.
To visually check if you are protected by FiregateCS, please visit verify.firegatecs.com to see a message similar to the one in the screenshot below:
That is actually it! If you have more questions, please address to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always happy to answer!
