    Windows isn't a problem because K9 Web Protection is basically impassable - and I can give my password to my accountability partner.

    Does anyone know of a porn blocker for Android phones that has the same level of strength? i.e. You can't just uninstall or disable it.

    Everything I've tried seems to be really easily removable.

    Thanks!

    It's really not though. You can uninstall that so easily. Sorry I have to tell the truth.

    I’ve had trouble hearing of great Android resources. Some have parental controls, others don’t. It’s not universal.

    Download Mobile Fence.

    However there are many steps to make it fully blockable.

    Caution: You will not be able to use any internet browsers, download any more apps, access the settings , or uninstall it without the password


    Step 1. Make a new email with a random password
    Step 2. For the the new email, make a random recovery email to which you cannot remember the email for example; [email protected] , this is so you can never reset your password.
    Step 3. Now you are ready to install the app
    Step 4. Upon installing the app, you will have to make an account. This account should have your new email( not the random one) , and a random password
    Step 5. Once you can access the app, you will want to make the app a phone administrator.
    Step 6. After making it an administrator , you need to set rules. These rules will be: Block Settings, Block Playstore, and Block Browsers
    Step 7. I find that although it does have a browser filter, it is not efficient and it does not always work. However, the apps are always blocked.

    There you have it a porn free phone, however not just porn free. It is also free of browsers, possible new apps, and any changes you want to make to the settings.

    This is a lot to lose so I suggest that you do keep the password in a safe place. Possibly give it to an accountability partner. What I have done is that I've emailed myself the password using futureme, what this will do is it will email me my password after 90 days just incase I need it. However, giving it to an accountability partner will likely be better if you can trust the accountability partner.

    Another user here had great things to say about Boomerang. Apparently it disables other browsers and forces all internet traffic through it's filtered router. Supposedly it's very customizable, too.

    To be honest, not to ruin it for anyone but most of these parental control apps are useless because they can be easily disabled via settings (not going to go in specifics , to prevent people from trying ). The thing with Mobile Fence is that it blocks settings aswell, which I know seems like too much I mean there is so many things we need our settings for whether it be checking data usage, et cetera. However, an addicted person goes through desperate measures to get what he wants, especially if its as easy as accessing your settings for a few minutes and getting an enormous dopamine rush.

    However, this does not mean that blockers are COMPLETELY useless. I feel that blockers should make it hard to access porn atleast to a point where you can get into your senses, maybe take a cold shower or do something that gets rid of your urges. To make porn very difficult to access I feel that mobile fence does the job if proper steps are followed.

    P.S If anyone knows how to get rid of mobile fence, please do not post it here as I finally feel as if I have hit the jackpot for blockers, and I have spent alot of time configuring mobile fence to make it nearly impossible for me to access porn.
