Spread the love

It’s safe to say that many people don’t understand just how infiltrated porn is into our daily lives. Porn is watched online by millions of people every day, regardless of age, gender, or generation.

Porn websites receive more traffic every month than Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Twitter is all put together. 35% of all internet downloads are related to pornographic and, perhaps even more shockingly, 64% of all young people, aged between 13-24, proactively look for porn online at least once a week.

As a culture, as a society, as a parent, friend, or lover, it’s safe to say that you need to be aware of whether or not this is a problem in your life.

There are many reasons why you might be asking how to block porn on Google. Maybe you’ve read the statistics above and thought, ‘Maybe I’m suffering from a porn addiction’ and want to get help and sort it out.

Perhaps you’re in a relationship with someone you think might have a porn addiction, and you want to try and work together to make sure that it doesn’t become more of a problem. You don’t even have to be in a relationship; this could be a friend that you’re worried about.

However, more importantly, you could be a parent, and you’re worried about your children accessing these porn websites on Google. Not only is it illegal for children under the age of 18 (or 21 depending on where you live), the consequences of children having access to porn at a young age, sometimes even as young as 11, can be devastating for their mental health.

How to Block Porn on Google

As you can see, there are many reasons why you might want to know how to block porn on Google. However, there are steps that you’ll need to take to make sure that one cannot access porn. Here’s a step by step guide on how to block porn on Google.

Step #1 - Navigate to Settings

Firstly, you’ll need to open your preferred web browser as though you were going to browse the internet. Head over to the Google homepage and click ‘Settings’ in the bottom right-hand corner.

Step #2 - Customising Search Settings

Once you click ‘Settings’, you’ll see a pop-up menu with the option of ‘Search Settings’ at the top. Click this, and it’ll take you to your Google Search Settings page. Right at the top of this page, you’ll see an option titled ‘SafeSearch Filters’.

Click ‘Turn on SafeSearch’, and SafeSearch will be enabled on your Google Search, blocking any pornographic websites and any content that’s deemed potentially harmful. If you’re signed in to your Google Account, it will apply this setting to all your connected devices.

The method above will work if you’re on any Google search page on any device as long as the SafeSearch setting is enabled. However, what happens if the user you’re trying to protect goes straight on the porn websites or uses an alternative search engine, such as Bing or Yahoo?

If you’re using the Google Chrome website browser, here’s a step by step guide on how to block pornographic websites and other potentially harmful content.

Step #1 - Downloading Anti-Porn Pro

Firstly, you’ll need to make your way to the Google Chrome Store and search Anti-Porn Pro, one of the leading porn blocking Google Chrome extensions. Alternatively, go straight there by clicking here.

Next, you’ll need to click the blue ‘Add to Chrome’ button in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and this will start installing Anti-Porn Pro into your edition of Google Chrome. During this process, you’ll probably see a popup box asking whether or not you want to add the extension. Click ‘Add Extension’.

Step #2 - Locking Your Settings

Now, you don’t want someone coming along and simply uninstalling the extension or disabling it. To stop this from happening, head over to the developer’s website, which can be found here. Click ‘Sign In’ on the top right-hand side of the website.

It’ll take you to a log-in page where you can enter your details, or you’ll have the ability to create an account if you don’t have one already. Once you’ve followed the on-screen instructions to create an account, sign in to your account, you’ll be set a User Activation Link to the email address you signed up with.

Step #3 - Locking in Anti-Porn Pro

Now that you’ve confirmed your account click the Anti-Porn Pro icon in your Chrome browser and select ‘Settings’ from the drop-down menu. In this menu, you’ll see an option titled ‘Enable Password Protection’. Click this and sign in to your account that you just made. Now you’ll be blocking porn from Google Chrome.

For added security, head over to chrome://extensions and scroll down to Anti-Porn Pro, where you’ll be able to enable the extension to work in ‘incognito mode’.

How to Use mSpy to Monitor for Porn on Smartphones

As you can see, there are many options available to you when it comes to blocking porn on a desktop computer, but what happens when it comes to blocking porn on a smartphone?

Unfortunately, iOS and Android operating systems are very different, and there’s no universal blocking application, at least one that’s guaranteed. However, there is an alternative solution that comes in the form of mSpy.

This app works on iOS (all versions) and Android devices (HTC, Sony, LG, Lenovo, Samsung, Huawei, etc.). It allows you to monitor a user’s phone web browsing history, see their download history, see their app usage history, and to see what content they are looking at on their smartphone in real-time.

You’ll also be able to use other essential features such as:

  • Real-time location tracking; 
  • SMS and call tracking; 
  • keylogger;
  • multimedia file access. 

You’ll even have the ability to record and capture the phone screen, all from no matter where you are in the world.

Conclusion

As you can see, porn doesn’t have to be such a harmful thing in your relationships or family life. Of course, it’s so hard to avoid it, but by using blockers and adjusting your settings, you can have peace of mind when it comes to protecting the ones you love.
