    My problem at the moment is how easily I can access stuff on my phone. When a urge hits the rational thinking is gone and I will just delete and dodge everything I have put up on my iphone for more difficult access..

    I have covenant eyes on my laptop which is working perfectly, I have not entered any sexual related websites for half a year on a pc. However, I have not found any permanent solution for a smartphone.

    What solution have you managed to find?

    Depends on your operating system. For Apple there's a web blocker under the content restrictions section of screen time. If you set up a screen time password (that you don't know; have someone else do it)and block the websites that you don't want to look at, then it should be good. Also under that section in settings there's an option to disable the app store, in case you want to stop yourself from redownloading social media or apps that make you relapse.
    Here's more info on that: https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-block-websites-on-iphone

    As for Android phones, I'm not too familiar with those. Maybe this video can help:

    Hope this post helps man, and good luck on your journey!

    Check out detoxify. Its what I use for my pc and smartphone. You can set a random pin to the app so you can't uninstall any setting after you have set them. I've had it for about 6 months and it works great, its also pretty cheap, its like 5 dollars a month I think.

    Sadly there's no shortcut for this, even with crazy blocking apps when hooked to watch it you'll find ways to watch it anyway, just avoid using your phone / pc too much time with no breaks.

    For Android:
    1. Download an App Blocker (I think mine is literally called App Blocker).
    2. Set a 16-digit PIN; and store that PIN in https://lockbox.pluckeye.net/
    3. Block/delete apps like Play Store, web browsers, and Settings (so that you can't force turn off the App Blocker... you may want to install some settings-specific apps before you do this).
    4. If you want some internet access, side load the PluckEye web browser (or similar web browsers that restrict adult content). https://www.pluckeye.net/how-to-block-all-porn-on-android.html
    4a. Also put in CleanBrowsing DNS into your phone settings (before you block the Settings in step 3!).

    I've had a lot of success with this combo.

    Thank you for your suggestion! In fact this is what I have done so far. However, it is relatively easy to reset the pincode on the restrictions with your icloud email and password. I have also tried to make a random password for my icloud email but that password can be reset by your phone screencode alone. : D

    I don't think this is true. What I use for my pc is impossible for me to get through. But I haven't found as effective option for a smartphone so far.
