How to Block Porn on iPhone

Pornography is incredibly easy to access when you’re browsing the internet. Not only can you end up on a website that displays sexually-orientated advertisements or content, but one misspelled Google search can also bring up a range of sites you would deem inappropriate for your children.

Yet with the average duration of children using internet-enabled devices like the iPhone for as long as four to seven hours a day, it’s only a matter of time before your children find themselves on a website like this. Some studies have shown that pornography is just two clicks away from some of the most commonly visited children sites out there.

With 10% of children under the age of ten having already viewed pornography on the internet, and 22% of all pornographic consumption online being held by under 18 age range, the effects of this content can be incredibly harmful.

Porn can be extremely damaging to the mental well-being of any children under the age of 18 and can have catastrophic consequences on how they regard sex in later life, engaging in their own sexual activity at a younger age, and can dramatically affect how they treat their sexual partners.

With all this mind, it goes without saying that the implementation of parental control apps to block pornography is an essential tool to be used. Today, we’re going to explore everything you need to know.
