The security filter allows companies to block certain users from performing searches on your locator. This comes in handy when you have competitors who are searching your locator for the purpose of contacting your dealers to sell their competing products. Bullseye is able to detect the IP address of each user. You can block these IP addresses from searching.
The security filter works together with IP address report. To check if a competitor has been harvesting your data, you need to run an IP address report, and see if there is an unusual amount of searches from a particular IP address. Go to Reports>By IP Address and generate a report. You'll see a report similar to this:
To block the IP address, select the Block This IP link on the right.
To generate a report on existing blocked IP addresses, or to manually type in IP addresses that you want to block, go to Settings>Security Filter. You'll see a screen that looks like the example below:
Simply type in the IP address you want to block, and that user will not be able to search. You can also delete IP addresses if needed.
