Porn Blockers for Handheld Devices
« on: November 29, 2018, 03:04:23 PM »
I want to rid myself of the plague of porn addiction. It's what we all want. I want to do everything in my power to make it happen. Trouble is, I never use my laptop to access porn, only my phone and occasionally my iPad. Does pornblock software exist for these devices, and if so, where can I find it? Thanks.

Your IPad has built in protection against porn, you just need to turn it on.  Google it to find directions.  Be aware, that if you reset your IPad that protection disappears and you can’t get it back.  I found that out the hard way and now I can’t get protection back.

If your phone is an iPhone, I think it has the same restriction settings as the iPad.  If it is a Samsung, like mine, I don’t think there is any way to set up restrictions.  They didn’t think of that.

While i have never used it, Covenant Eyes is set up to sent a report of your internet activity. Think of what you would feel like if your accountability partner knew everywere you went.

Interesting thought.

For iOS 11 or Prior:
Settings -> General -> Restrictions -> Web Content -> Limit Adult Websites

It asks you to set a passcode for these restrictions. Better give passcode to someone you know so that you won't bypass it.

If you are using latest iOS 12 version,
Settings -> Screen Time -> Content & Privacy Restrictions -> Content Restrictions -> Web Content -> Limit Adult Websites

Great instructioms, oneaffidafit!  Follow those, OP.   Again, your ipad will ask you for a passcode.  Whether you know the passcode or not is up to you and how much self control you habe.  Wben I set mine up initially, just the few seconds the passcode warning provided was enough to remind me of my promise to myself to avoid PMO.  For other people they may need to give someone else the passcide.  That may get awkward though jf the system ocks a legitimate site you want to use, or if you want to add sites to block or allow. 

Up to you.
