Altering Your Phone’s Host List

This method is reliable if the users want to block some specific website manually on a device. This can be done by using the ES File Explorer. The ES File Explorer can be used to control the websites that can be accessed in the smartphones. This application edits the host files and redirects the flow. With the help of this app, no one will be able to access the inappropriate content even when they change the proxy settings of the network. To block all porn sites from the phone, the users require a text editor and a file manager on the phone. Follow the steps below to successfully block the porn websites:

Step 1. At first download the ES File Explorer on the phone. Once the application is downloaded, install it on the device and kick-start web filtering process.

Step 2. When you will open the ES File Explorer, you will see a “/” icon. Click on the icon and select System option and then “etc”.

Step 3. Now you will see multiple files, select the file which has Hosts written on it and open the options menu. Select “open as Text” and choose the “ES Note Editor” app and then “edit” the file.

Step 4. In the ES note Editor, redirect the DNS server. For redirecting, you would have to type a new line as “127.0.0.1www. .com”. In the space for a blocked website, the users must enter the name of the website they want to block. This will block the website and when someone searches for that website they will be redirected.

Step 5. To activate this setting, the users have to reboot their phone. Only then, the website will be successfully blocked.

This way, you will alter the settings of the phone and can ensure that no one will be able to access the blocked website.

Block all porn websites using Parental Flux

Parental Flux is a customized application used especially to block all porn in the phones. As suggested by the name, it can also block some apps too that kids can use to access porn. This app will be downloaded into the device as a browser and once it is completely downloaded, you have to launch it. When you launch the browser for the first time, it will ask a key in the password. Every single time in the future when you want to use this app, you must enter the key. That’s how; it will prevent the access of blocked content on the phone. The browser will give you options such as Download filter, Pornography filter, adult filter, violence filter, drugs filter, and some other filtering options. By selecting the checkboxes, all the ads and websites which contain that kind of content will be completely blocked from the phone. Once you are done with the setup, the phone will be safe for the kids.

Conclusion:

There are various methods available on the internet that can help the users to block all porn websites from the phone. Although the Parental Flux and altering the Phone’s host list both are effective for a better way, people can choose the FamiSafe Parental Control app. This app provides a variety of features that can prevent the kids from accessing inappropriate content such as porn from their phone. You can download the app from Google Play Store or App Store and give it a try.
