Exceptions tab
The Exceptions tab applies to Forcepoint Mobile Security with AirWatch® Mobile Device Management. Exceptions allow the default web analysis actions for mobile devices to be overridden for a specific mobile device profile.
 
Note 
Exceptions configured in the Web Categories and Application Control tabs take precedence over exceptions set for device profiles. For example, if you have the category Job Search set to Allow under Web Application Control Exceptions but set to Block under Mobile Device Profile Exceptions, the Job Search category will still be allowed.
On the Exceptions tab, the exceptions to the default analysis action are listed at the bottom of the page. The device profiles you may choose include the following:
