    "Allows me to completely lock my son's phone down while he is grounded. Perfect for the excessive use by teens and super easy to use. We will be keeping this app. Unlike others, this app can not be deleted by the teen from their phone when the settings are locked down. Perfect!"

DID YOU KNOW?

The advent of easy access to the world wide web is a double-edged sword. Well, not to mention that the availability of smartphones amplified this phenomenon. This is making people of all ages susceptible to anything they see on the web. This is true especially for the minors, as they are on the stage of self-exploration. As a result of the proliferation of adult contents, the US government stepped up its game to block them.

The US legislation considers a law that requires all internet service providers to block porn sites. By that, they mean blocking all free online porn on any iOS or Android devices, even on laptops! In the event that the consumer wants an access, he or she would need to pay a fee of 20 US dollars to ‘unlock’ it. Rhode Island’s bill says that the fee would go to the state’s anti-human trafficking commission. South Carolina, Virginia, and Alabama are also heading towards the same track. With a firm stand, Virginia delegate David Lark said that the bill is not against the freedom of speech. He further added that the daily porn may not be good for one’s mental health. Brains that are often exposed to consumption of porn are less active and less connected. Moreover, it can be addictive and ruin one's sex life with your partner. Despite the efforts, it is vital to know that it should start within the household. With the help of porn blockers apps and anti-virus software for phones and PCs, parents are now at ease.
