Porn Blocker Software: Advanced Parental Control


The internet is a difficult space to regulate and adult material is a primary example of this. The NSPCC recently estimated that two-thirds of 15-16 year olds have access to adult material online. This has led to pressure being placed on the UK Government to address concerns about internet safety for parents.

When determining who is responsible for protecting children from adult content online, there are a variety of factors that need to be considered.

1.  Adult Industry Rules and Regulations

The adult industry has made it clear that their content is not appropriate for viewers over the age of 18. Most if not all adult sites will ask viewers to confirm their age before being granted access. However, these restrictions can be easily bypassed. In 2013 then-Prime Minister David Cameron promised the NSPCC that he would tighten regulations on the adult industry.

Complications arise when you consider the prolific – not to mention profitable - nature of the adult industry. The sheer volume of adult websites online makes an industry-wide clampdown seem unrealistic. It remains to be seen how effective new regulations will be.

2.  Broadcasting Mediums

Regulating access to adult content is complicated by the sheer volume of devices in the average home. From social media to video streaming services, from mobile apps to games consoles, there is no area of technology which has remained untapped by pornography, it would seem. 

Smartphones are devices that nearly every young person has. It goes without saying how difficult it can be to wrestle a smartphone out of the average teenager's hand! This makes physically monitoring their internet use on a phone near impossible. 

Although social media apps may seem benign, apps like Snapchat and Instagram can be used to share adult content. Therefore, the right kind of device for restricting access to pornography needs to consider the potential of not just different devices, but websites and apps that may not explicitly be classified as ‘porn sites.’  

3.  Responsibility

Pornography is always a sensitive topic of conversation – particularly between parents and children. However, one thing that leads children to accessing adult content is a lack of openness about its surrounding issues. Peer group pressures can also result in young teenagers accessing adult content.

Ultimately, parents are responsible for their child’s development – they need to be made aware of what kind of content is inappropriate to view at a particular age.

Of course this is easy for tech companies and regulatory bodies to say. This does not mean that parents are not responsible for what their children are watching. However, the growing presence of adult content available across all possible devices certainly complicates matters.
