  2. Navigate to your VIPRE Endpoint Security console.
  3. Locate and double-click on the policy you want to add an allowed domain to.
  4. Select Advanced Browser Protection to expand your options. Then, click on Allowed Web Sites.
  5. Click the Add button to enter the testing domain(s) in the Please enter domain field.
