Summary

Setting up the Smoothwall to remove comments from YouTube.

Problem

Guardian content modification rules are available to remove comments from YouTube.

Solution

Note: YouTube now redirects all users to HTTPS, so in order to ensure that your content modification policies are working correctly make sure you have configured a Decrypt and Inspect HTTPS interception policy. You will also need the decryption certificate installed on the devices' browsers as a root trusted certificate. You can export the certificate from Guardian > HTTPS inspection > Settings.

1. Ensure you have not created any Whitelist web filter policies for the YouTube category as whitelisting bypasses the content modification rules — see https://help.smoothwall.net/Latest/Content/modules/guardian3/cgi-bin/guardian/policies.htm.
2. Ensure you have not created any Ignore content modification policies for the YouTube category — see https://help.smoothwall.net/Latest/Content/modules/guardian3/cgi-bin/guardian/contentmod.htm.
3. Create a content modification policy for the YouTube category that applies the YouTube Comment Removal and YouTube SafetyMode cookie content mods — see https://help.smoothwall.net/Latest/Content/modules/guardian3/cgi-bin/guardian/contentmodpolicywiz.htm
4. Ensure the YouTube category is added to your Decrypt and inspect HTTPS inspection policy — see https://help.smoothwall.net/Latest/Content/modules/guardian3/cgi-bin/guardian/https.htm
