How do Web Filtering categories work?

We have a list, but we only need to check it once!

We have a database of known bad websites, each of these websites is categorized as either Drugs, betting, violence, etc. Each time your child visits a website we check the database to see if the website is in a category that you’ve restricted. If it is then the website will be blocked.
