Filtering software works by completely blocking any websites that are pornographic, sexually explicit or violent in nature. If you are struggling with porn addiction and want to use filtering software, we recommend you use it alongside accountability software. This means you’re doing the journey with someone, rather than trying to go cold turkey on your own. Plus it helps generate transparency, and healthy conversations with your accountability partner.
For parents, filtering can be a great solution to preventing accidental access while your children are surfing the internet. We recommend you always converse with your kids about the dangers of porn and explain why the filtering software is used. If they do accidentally come across questionable content you want them to come and speak to you about it. Always make sure your computer is in a high traffic area, like the living area of your home.
