how to block porn websites on iPhone?

Internet is a library full of information. Internet is the network that connect all the world. You can find any information about anything.  However there are many pages that contain adult, pornographic content. Internet is so common that small kids also have full access to the information on internet.

Below Facts from Convenant eyes will highlight the seriousness

  • In 2015, worldwide, there were more than 2 billion web searches for porn.
  • 20 percent of mobile-device searches are for porn.
  • 90 percent of boys and 60 percent of girls are exposed to Internet porn by age 18.
  • 56 percent of divorces involve one spouse (almost always the man) having an obsessive interest in online porn.
  • Compared with faithful spouses, adulterers are more than twice as likely to be regular viewers of online porn.

Similar statistics come from InternetSafey101/Enough is Enough, which calls itself “the national leader in making the Internet safe for children and families.” According to this organization:

  • Porn sites attract more visitors each month than Amazon, Netflix, and Twitter combined.
  • 30 percent of Internet content is porn.
  • 88 percent of porn contains violence against women.
  • From 2005 to 2013, searches for “teen porn” tripled to 500,000 a day.
  • Compared with young adults who don’t view violent X-rated material, those who do are are six times more likely to commit sexual assault.

 

So your kid is not safe from porn on the internet. Especially today kids are well equipped with latest technology. They have access to smart devices. As parents you may have convinced that your kids are smarter in handing technological devices than adults.

But in a condition that 30% of internet is porn can you assure the safety of your kid.

Most kids use iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Somehow they want their parents to buy iPhone for them. Apple products considered to be smarter devices with good safety features. But in default they are not set to block porn.

There are third party applications you can buy from apple store. But it is costly. There is another in built option in IOS to block porn. It will be safer and no cost involved compared paid apps.
