Unlike most filtering software, everything happens on your device. We do not send your private browsing data to servers to be filtered. We don't need it, we don't want it. This also means we're not running a bunch of power-draining servers around the world to do this.
Citadel has a customizable keyword censor to "bleep" out unwanted language without entirely blocking resources.
Of course, Citadel has one of the oldest and most effective tools, URL exempting and blocking. However, Citadel bolsters this proven technology with a powerful filter syntax for more versatile filtering.
Citadel is good at what it does. Configure it to block what you want to block and rest assured that it's working. A filter that puts you to work is making you do it's job. Citadel works for you.
Citadel filters HTTP and HTTPS traffic from any and all software, not just browsers, and no browser extensions are required.
Citadel uses a high-performance driver built in-house to ensure that all our powerful filtering doesn't degrade your download speed. In our testing on gigabit internet, our driver causes zero degridation of downstream performance.
Many content filters can be defeated by dark web technology, such as the TOR browser. Citadel cannot. In fact, Citadel prevents this and any other kinds of proxy-based bypasses from working system-wide.
Citadel enables you to choose specific software to filter, or capture all software to filter with exemptions, as well as drop any kind of web traffic from any software.
