Porn Blocker – Block Adult Content in Safari App Reviews

0 add

Junk

Not even 2 searches later just testing it out- full on porn available. Support is on vacation, so good luck getting it blocked. Would have thought a porn site of it's popularity would for certain be blocked. But it was not. Also- no password protection except for your own iPhone restrictions app. Really? Oh- and Only a Safari blocker? Useless App. Do not pay for it to try it out - Just tried PURGE. It's $2, no subscription, has a separate password protection, and also filters everything! Awesome! Don't waste your money on this app.

Buy it

Amazing, it is worth the money

Only blocks English

Only blocks English results. This makes the app useless for multilingual folk, and next to useless to anyone who can use google translate. Maybe this app is good enough for kids, but for myself, I'm going to try an accountability browser instead. Sending my wife a report of what I looked at will be a bigger barrier than going to google translate.

Thanks

It's perfect, nice job

Amazing app

I admit, I have my struggles, especially with the media theses days. Not only does it block as it says it does. I came across other sights and they covered them right away. Thank you keep doing what is right. It's worth the money.

Trying it

I need to block certain sites and I hope this helps me

very good for /r/nofap-ers

however, to the dev, can you fix this issue? on youtube, the search bar is broken with this enabled

I love it!

This is a fantastic app and I love it! Not only does it block just about any nudity or pornographic material, but they DO work to improve the app constantly which is much appreciated! One great feature is it's a one-time fee for the usage of the app as long as you want! The only downside to this app is that it's only available for Apple products and can't be used on your computer unless it's apple. But that's the only negative I've found! Love it and love the efforts to block wickedness!

Hello

Need help to remove it's blocking things that shouldn't be blocked and there is no way I can reset the password which has locked the app on my phone I can't even delete it....!!!!! I need to access my school website yet it blocked it I contacted you but I haven't gotten a response yet!!!!

Thank you

Thanks for making this, you are making a true difference in my life

Great app

I have used this app now for 6 month. Works well. Even when leaving an app to hit the web, it catches what needs to be blocked. I highly recommend. Purity is important.

Thankful for this App

I really appreciate this app. I just installed it and it has already assisted me in overcoming my own personal struggle with lust. It's the best $8 I ever spent. I see it as a great investment into my own soul, my friendship with females, and even a future wife that I may see them rightly and purely as God created them to be.

Best porn blocker I've used

Definitely worth the money, I've recommended it to friends.

Excellent Blocker

It blocks all you need it to block - I'm really trying to cut this out of my life entirely, and this is a great resource. The response for adding new sites and solving loopholes is awesome too. Thanks!

Amazing

Works great. For some reason this app blocked gym workouts on a website I visit frequently, so I contacted the developer and within 3 days the website was unblocked. Support this developer!

WOW!!!

God bless Jonathan Arnold!....Brilliant!.........a must for everyone on 'Safari'

Must have blocker!

I love that this works with safari! I can use my iPhone like normal and it blocks all the garbage. I believe it even filters google images, which is awesome! It's definitely worth the one time fee.

Good!

Works well upon download. Great for safari and Chrome on my iPhone 7, iOS 10.3.1. Asking app maker to filter out images through IMDB. I set it up with a passcode I can't remember. So, to get rid of it, I'd have to reset my whole phone. Great for Christians I think.

Very good

The app works great and gives easy to follow steps to even set up further barriers. I found 2 sites not blocked, emailed the creator of the app, and he blocked them within a few days. Great customer service, and always improving the app. Thanks!

Kicks butt

This app kicks butt! I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling with pornography! Wish it was a little less money but it gets the job done perfectly and that's all that matters and is worth it. Sometimes it blocks things that shouldn't be a threat at all but if you're willing to make that sacrifice then it's worth it. Stay strong guys! Keep fighting !

I LOVE IT!

It's really good now I can go find some good memes, but some of times there might be so pic of girl we're bikinis so it mostly works but it doesn't block that stuff 😢

SUPER RAD!

The app blocks porn. It does what its suppose to do. If you find a site that it should not block, then email these folks. They will fix it. SUPER RAD!

Fantastic App - Thank you Lord!!

I initially had to turn off Safari completely because there were no apps that enabled me to search the Internet confidently and that successfully blocked porn websites. Then I came across Porn Blocker and it is an answer to prayer!! It works great and now I have the confidence to search the Internet without the worry of coming across anything inappropriate. Also, Jon, the developer, of this app is awesome and quick at responding to my emails, helping me troubleshoot issues and is always open to suggestions/feedback on how to improve the app. Thank you Jon for giving me freedom using the Internet from my iPhone!!

Don't buy

Absolute crap. Blocks absolutely everything. Wanna search guns? Nope your mighty over lords deemed that bad too. Wanna google recipes? Nope apparently the developers hate low country boils. Take the $7 and eat it. It's much better spent that way.

Bad app

The app is so restrictive that it became necessary for me to delete it. For some reason it thinks that my university website should be blocked and so I couldn't access my grades. The money spent on the app is literally wasted.

Great. But

It's great but it blocks many things besides the explicit. It also caused the image search on google to no longer work correctly. It won't open up any images when clicked on which is very annoying. Other than that, it's great for people with an addiction to porn.

Works fine so far

Good app!

Fantastic Support

Note: Because I am working with an iOS beta, it would be unfair to dock stars for an issue. If I were to omit that detail, this app would rate 4 stars. I have been having issues getting the app to work as designed, and the support has been fantastic. Due to using the iOS beta, I have not been able to access the app's configuration, however with the app selected in Safari's settings, it works as advertised. They typically answer emails the same day (allowing for time zone differences) and I am confident it will be fixed. As others have discussed, at least by default, the filtering is very aggressive.

Porn BLOCKED

This app has saved my mind from viewing content that my mind needs to refrain from. This app works!

Works great with one issue

This app definitely helps on the safari browser. However, this blocker has no affect on Twitter's in-app browsing. Is there any sort of update you can do that allows the blocker to block pornographic content thru the in-app browsing? It would really help my fight against porn addiction.

Amazing

This app is the best thing ever made I wish I could download this onto the computer

Good

So far good

Great app, great customer service.

This is a rewrite on a review I wrote on Feb 10. Upon first using Porn Blocker, I was aggravated with it blocking other safe sites and gave it a 3 star rating because it didn't have a whitelist. But I acted prematuratly. I contacted the developer about it, and he responded quite fast. He exlained that his app does have a whitelist by just contacting him and he will fix the accidentially blocked site. I sent him the link and it was done just like that. Fast. He also said that by having a whitelist, users can easily trick the app and their accountability partners. Made sense to me. The best thing is that Porn Blocker does exactly what its supposed to do. It blocks offensive sites extremely well. I used ios 10 restrictions to set up a password, blocked turning off and deleting the app and also used its own adult blocker just to make sure. It all went without a hitch. Thanks, Jonathan for a great app and great customer service.

Solid.

I have struggled with porn for a long time, and this app is the best app I've found that still allows me to browse, but blocks the bad stuff. If I type in "boobs", "sexy", "nude" or anything like that it blocks the search. Which is awesome. It works seamlessly with Safari.

Great App

This filter has worked great! When I found an area where I have problems that wasn't blocked, within 2 days the developer had reviewed, added, and emailed instructions to update. That was great, but then I received a follow up email to make sure I was good. Yes, there have been a few places that blocked, and I didn't understand why, but in most, I didn't need to be there anyway! THANKS, AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Excellent app!

This app is an answer to prayer. I come from a marriage destroyed by pornography which led to more extreme behaviors. Raising a son, I've been super concerned about protecting him. Why are we putting mini computers in the hands of children where they can access stuff that can destroy their lives?? I asked God to lead me to something like this! All of the other filters I have seen replace safari with another browser that does not work well. This app filters safari instead. Jonathan is great about answering questions and helping and he is so quick to reply. I couldn't be happier to have found this. I recommended it to kids in the youth group at my church last night where I am a leader. Thanking God I found this app!

Don't buy this just use restrictions in iOS 10

So I just paid 8 dollars for an App that pretty much works as well as the restriction settings within iOS 10. False advertisement says it has password protection, not the case, iOS 10 has password protection. It's description says it has password protection. That is a lie especially for those who are not interested in using the native restrictions in iOS 10. This is super misleading, when natively iOS 10 does a pretty good job on its own. This should not be an 8 dollar app. Better spent on Chipotle.

Great app

It's definitely worth it. I had my wife set up a password, In case I get temped. And the customer service is extremely helpful. I truly recommend this app

Best App at Blocking Porn

I recently started the NoFap challenge and this app has helped me a lot. Huge thanks to the developer Jon who immediately responds to my emails and allows me to customize the app to help my personal needs. If there is anything that you want to be blocked from Google Jon is your man and this app is your guardian angel!!!!!!

Best I've found

This is the best filter I've found for the iPhone, which still allows me to be on Safari. As others have noted, it does also block innocent searches and there's no way around it... Which is frustrating... But it's worth it for purity. Also, I just tried to download this for my son's iPod and apparently it won't work on iPods, which stink.

Don't waste your money

Thinking I could try the app out, I put in a password to test it. I wanted to let my wife choose a password, it won't allow me to change the password. Poor instructions, poor help.

THANK YOU SO MUCH

This app saved my life and I'm ready to move on from my porn addiction. I will never be able to put into words how thankful I am for this. Also, I have an iPad mini 2, have tried to download this app onto there, and it says my device is not compatible. Please help!

Yes!!!

Very happy!!! Best $8 I've ever spent!!!!

Great app. Needs whitelist/blacklist options

Pros: Love the app. Blocked some of the most creative ways I could think of to find porn on Safari when I was testing it out. So I'm pretty impressed so far. We'll see how it goes the more I use it. Cons: Biggest issue is it needs a setting where I can choose to allow certain websites I want (ex: a website that shouldn't be blocked). And it needs a setting where I can blacklist additional websites that I don't want to allow myself on. Purposes for that could be extending this apps use past just a porn blocker and allowing parents additional control over what their children view. Other than that no complaints!

A much needed service

I have been using this app for the last two months and have found it to be very thorough. The creator pays great attention to detail, and responds to requests for support promptly and courteously. I only wish Apple were as responsive to feedback.

So far good!

It does error on the side of over blocking sites that don't need blocking, but that's better than not blocking what should be blocked! Especially if you are someone struggling with this! I just hope this comes to safari on macOS soon!

Great App

Though it has some flaws, such as allowing some pornographic content to get through, it is overall a very good and simple app to help provide a barrier. As far as the flaws go, I will note that when I had sent feedback to the admin their response was quick, which was great and much appreciated.

Great app and excellent support

You can't go wrong with this app! Well worth the money. App works great and developer fully supports the software.

Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

Well worth the money spent, the dev is awesome! Does exactly what it needs to, and it's as close to perfect as you're going to get anywhere.

Great Solution For Christians Who Need A Filtering Solution

The Porn Blocker is a great app, because it impliments everything that Apple has failed to do over the years it has been in business. The restriction settings has always been, "You block all websites and apps, and even safari, and now you are porn free." But with this application, you are enabled to keep Safari on your device, instead of having to block it. This is a much better alternative than VPN (Virtual Private Network), which is what CircleGO uses (Which can be disabled) and even those "in-app" sonlutions like the covenant eyes app on ios, Mobicip, and K9. If you are wanting an easy solution to bring peace from not lookinging at porn, this is the app for you. I do hope that in the future, the developers of this app will expand the app to work on the root device, controling every app other than safari (Due to backdoors). But all in all, this is a much worth the money app that gets the job done.
