Porn Blockers

Using the Family Zone Porn Blocker will keep
your children safe from explicit material.

New Call-to-action

While surfing the net, children can unintentionally be marketed to with messages of an adult nature. Or as they get older, with teenage curiosity, search for sexually explicit material. At Family Zone, we believe in only letting children access age appropriate content. Our software, coupled with advice from our cyber experts, allows you to handle this sensitive topic with ease.

How do porn blockers work?

One way to block explicit content is to activate safe search within web browsers. This prevents your kid accessing pornographic material from search engine result pages. But it often won’t stop them accessing a site that contains ads or links to pornographic material. A child can also change the browser they are using to bypass the safe search settings.

Most porn blockers operate by filtering websites on two factors. The first using keyword analysis to determine if there are any ‘bad’ words phrases on the site. The second factor being the creation of a blacklist that will block access to any site that is added to the list.

Family Zone’s porn blockers go beyond these basic steps to provide extensive coverage across all devices and browsers. Porn can be blocked whether it is accessed in the home or while outside on mobiles.

How the Family Zone Box blocks porn

The Family Zone box will block web-connected devices from accessing inappropriate content. Once the box is connected to your home router it will broadcast 3 WiFi networks. A family, guest and unfiltered network. The unfiltered network is secure but should only be used by parents.. The guest network is safe and filtered. However, users on the guest network will not be able to access any personal files, media or printers. The family network should be the default network. It will block porn and filter sites based on your preferred settings.

The box will automatically turn on safe search parameters for Google & Bing. By default it will block all other search engines for users under 18. There are strict filters on YouTube which block all unrated and adult rated content.

For users over 18, Family Zone does not track behaviour and will only filter access lightly. These settings can be modified at any time from your Family Zone portal.

Porn Blockers for mobile devices

The Family Zone app works in harmony with the Family Zone Box to block pornographic material when the kids are out and about. Once the Family Zone app is installed on your child’s device you can control what sites they have access to and when. There are default settings depending on the age of the child using the device but these are customisable to suit you.

If your child attempts to access a blocked site or downloads an app you will receive an alert. For apps considered unsafe by your chosen Cyber Expert, you will receive a notification with their advice on the next steps.

You can temporarily allow sites to be accessed with Quick-Time changes. Or respond on the go to access requests sent by your child. These measures give you the peace of mind to know that your child in not accessing inappropriate content when out of the home.
