How to block pornography - Porn filter on phone - Anti porn software | DigitalCitiZEN | Parenting | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Are you a parent wondering how to block pornography on your child's internet and mobile devices? Our free digital parenting guide explains what is involved.

 

It is estimated that there are over 4 million pornography sites, that 25% of searches on search engines are pornography related, 30% of all internet traffic is pornography and the percentage of internet users who view pornography is estimated at 42%.  (source: Internet filter review)

 

If that last statistic of 42% seems high to you, a survey by Cosmopolitan Magazine of 4,000 men found that 30% watched porn daily and  71% of men 18-34 watch it at least once a month.  In a 2014 survey by the Oxford Union in the UK, 71.8% of all students said they view porn; 91% of men vs 51% of women.

 

In February 9, 2014 the Irish Mirror reported that Ireland’s internet porn use has increased 77%since 2010.

 

The reality is that it is very easy for our kids to be exposed to it. However, if you want to block pornography it is becoming increasingly difficult and complicated. It is no longer as simple as installing some anti porn software on your PC or installing a porn filter on your PC because kids now access the internet predominantly on mobile devices and also via gaming consoles.

I picked this site because it provides a nice starting point for a discussion on digital citizenship. I love that is from the UK--these concerns are global.

Are passwords dead?

 

According to Wired's Mat Honan, they ought to be. Honan is the technology journalist who was hacked last year. In just a few minutes, his entire digital life, including photos of his young daughter, disappeared. If it can happen to a tech-savvy writer like Honan, it can happen to anyone.
