How to Block Porn
- Are you tired of accidentally coming across a picture or video that you didn’t want to see?
- Do you wish there was a way to avoid the temptation altogether?
- Are you nervous your kids are using that new iPad to look at stuff you don’t approve of?
- Do you wish there was a way to actually disable and delete those private browsers?
As is the case with almost 100% of guys out there, I’ve been exposed to pornography. Pictures, videos, literature; all types of smut are finally being proven scientifically to be incredibly destructive for both men and women.
Researchers are now openly claiming that viewing pornography is literally shrinking your brain, killing sexual intimacy between couples, more addictive than drugs, and leads to much more sexual violence, particularly against women.

It can serve as a real temptation, knowing you wouldn’t have to work at all to try and hide your tracks or prevent anyone else from seeing the stuff you secretly look at.
I thought to myself, there has to be a way to disable all this kind of stuff. As I was searching online, I found a few forums from schoolteachers as well, complaining that students are able to use the private browsing on school devices as a work-around for the school’s blocker programs.
I spent a few hours today scouring websites and forums to see if there was a way to block all of these private browsing options, and guess what, there is! They’re really hard to find though, and can be a bit confusing tech-wise, so I thought I would lay a few of them out here. [Read more…]
