Restricting Data SIM Card to only access CommCare Server

Dear All,

I would like to only allow my data SIM card to only be used to communicate
with CommCare to prevent data collectors from using it to access other
internet sites. They can access WiFi internet in their field offices to
update their devices or access other sites when needed but I do not what
them to do that using the data SIM we purchased for data collection.

My question is:

What is the CommCare URL I need to send to allow access to? My mobile phone
compony indicate that they can block all other sites.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Jalloh

Dear All,

I just realized that my question was not clear. The question actually is:

What is the CommCare URL that should be allowed? The mobile phone service
provider indicates that they can block all other sites.

Thanks

Hello,

As long as your mobile phone company can restrict access by entire domain,
then anything that starts with https://www.commcarehq.org/ should be
sufficient.

Dear Cory,
Thanks for your quick reply. Just to clarify as i am not an IT expert; do
you mean that by asking my phone company to only allow access to
https://www.commcarehq.org/
https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.commcarehq.org%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNFXRrrVZ4lwB3oQAbGitXYPFrCt9Q via
the data SIM card, then my CommCare app installed in the device will be
able to communicate with the server to send data and update itself as
needed?

Yes, that’s right - so long as your phone company allows access to all
sites that start with https://www.commcarehq.org/
https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.commcarehq.org%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNFXRrrVZ4lwB3oQAbGitXYPFrCt9Q
and not just that exact address.
