Password override
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
Password override lets clients in the Super Administrator role that have valid passwords access sites in blocked categories. Password override can be granted to individual users, groups, computers, or networks, but not OUs.
When a Super Administrator enables the password override option, he or she also creates a password. When clients with password override privileges request a blocked site, the block page includes a password field. The clients can then enter the password to access blocked sites for a limited amount of time.
This option is not available to delegated administrators, because it would effectively provide a method for overriding the Filter Lock (see Creating a Filter Lock).
 
Important 
Configure how long clients with password override privileges can access blocked sites per password entry on the Settings > General > Filtering page (see Configuring filtering settings).
Grant password override privileges to specific clients via the Policy Management > Clients page (see Adding a client or Changing client settings).
