There are three types of phrases that the dictionaries can contain:

Exact phrase (Fig.3.). This type of sensitive content defines that the application should search for the exact match of the chosen phrase. E.g. "test". If the message contains a word "tester" - the application will simply ignore it.

Wildcard (Fig.4.). This type of sensitive content defines that the application should search for the phrase that can match and contain the word described in the dictionary. E.g. "test". If the phrase contains the word "test" e.g. "tester" the word meets the requirements and the rule will apply for the found phrase.

After the type of the phrase has been chosen, its weight needs to be set as well. The weight is also set up in the rule. After the number exceeds its limit in the rule, the rule will apply. Each phrase in the dictionary has its own weight which defines its significance.

After adding, removing or editing the phrases, click OK button to apply changes.
