No Internet Policy


The “No Internet” Policy is a built-in Policy that is designed to allow no DNS queries to resolve when it is applied, effectively blocking all traffic that requires DNS. Furthermore, DNS-less traffic is disallowed.

When the “No Internet” Policy is used in a schedule, it works as expected in that blocking is effective as per your schedule for all new requests. Pre-existing TCP sessions prior to the scheduled change, such as a Steam game may or may not be disconnected according to this reference:
