How can I block porn on my computer?

There are a variety of ways you can block porn on your computer, depending on whether you use a Mac or a Windows-based system.

Here are some ways you can block porn on different systems / devices:

Mac: Use Apple Restrictions. Go to “Settings” “General” “Restrictions” and set a password to enable restrictions. Then scroll down to “Websites” settings in Restrictions click on it and set Allowed Websites to “Limit Adult Content”.

You can also use tools such as Google Safe Search and K9 Internet Filter to block content on web browsers.  

Google Safe Search: On the Google homepage go to the bottom right hand corner and click on “settings”. This will take you to the settings page and you can check the Safe Search box at the top of the page. You can also choose to ‘lock’ Safe Search using your email address. You can use Safe Search on your phone and tablet browsers as well.

K9 Internet Filter: This is a free program that allows you to set several blocking features for the internet. This includes the ability to block websites in over 70 categories, including explicit content, and forcing SafeSearch onto all major search engines.
