In the 16th addition of our Two Minute Tips video series, we will show you how Netsweeper list management can help school administration prevent students from downloading unwanted applications onto school computers.

While devices in the classroom often increase a student’s engagement level in an activity, lesson, or assignment, in some cases it can also be a distraction. Kids may try to download applications onto school devices, often .exe files such as games, VPNs, or file sharing apps that don’t need to be there and can also pose a potential security risk.

Netsweeper can block executable files that are not already installed on a workstation from being downloaded, by simply adding it to your Local List. To see how Netsweeper can help students focus on their exams, check out our other video Creating a Policy Event to Reduce Distractions During Exams.
