    Moderators, please don't move this thread. It has been moved many times to wrong categories before being brought back here by the admins.
    Topics of this sub-forum include: Potential benefits, tips, advice, peer support, etc.
    So this is the right sub-forum.

    "NoFap is like trying to quit smoking but you always have a packet of cigarettes in your pocket."

    Some of us have risked breaking their streaks and even relapsed while testing the blockers. So if you know better ways to block porn, please, let us know.
    Why should you be using porn blockers?
    Because it’s really hard to quit porn when it’s just a click away.

    There will be times when willpower will fail you. Say for example, you were very tired or had poor sleep one day.

    What if you were having a bad day and you're thinking that watching porn might be a good idea?

    We know very little about willpower. But we now know that the prefrontal cortex of the brain is primarily responsible for willpower.

    So what damages your prefrontal cortex?

    1-Not getting enough sleep.
    2-Chronic stress
    3-Masturbating to porn.(Most importantly)

    That’s why when you relapse once, it becomes easier to relapse again and it becomes much harder to control yourself as you have temporarily damaged your prefrontal cortex. You have probably read this on YBOP, that masturbating to porn decreases the grey matter in your prefrontal cortex. Grey matter represents the cell bodies in the brain. So porn literally kills your prefrontal cortex where your willpower lives.

    What happens when your prefrontal cortex is fucked up? This gets us to an important function of the prefrontal cortex: Concentration, that's why you get the worst brain fog ever when you relapse.

    (Other diseases of the prefrontal cortex: Attention deficiency (ADHD) & Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCD). )

    When you start watching porn notice how your heart rate goes crazy. It will remain high for a few minutes but will eventually fall back to normal. I’m one of the people who believe that the heart is the center of emotion and not the brain. Maybe the brain is involved but the heart is the master of your emotions.

    What does that have to do with anything?

    That rush your heart gets when you watch porn, numbs your heart, it makes it insensitive to other emotions.

    A family member may die, and you won’t feel shit, you will try as hard as you can to cry, but you just can’t feel anymore, your heart is dead.

    Things that used to get you excited in the past, like hanging out with friends can’t get you excited now. At this point, only porn can.

    But not even “average porn” can get you excited now, the old porn doesn’t make your heart go as crazy as before, you have to watch novel and weird porn to get the same effect.

    We need to stay away from this drug as much as we can. If all what a porn blocker can do is to increase the number of clicks between you and watching porn, so why not give it a try? Why not give your willpower an aid?

    Porn filters are there to stop you when you are thinking you can’t take it anymore, it can stop you when you’re about to do something you’ll regret.

    DO NOT use porn filters as a crutch, they are just there to help you when you’re weak.

    If you depend on them too much, you will always end up finding a way around and watching porn.

    Porn blockers should buy you time, allow you to use your will power in achieving more important goals and provide accountability(if possible).


    Saving your passwords
    The best method is the last.

    1-You could let a friend or a family member to directly enter the passwords and it's very important to tell them to save it somewhere, for example, using the "Note" app on their phone.

    2-Another option is to type a random password in notepad e.g. lsfdjaljfalsjfaljf8y7ysfy7

    then copy that password and paste it in the application you want to lock like forticlient for example, then paste it again in a message to your friend, then finally delete that message on your end so only your friend could see it.

    3-Use lockbox.pluckeye.net
    Enter a random password in notepad: jasfjdhashf87ahfa8f78a7fhas

    Then copy this shit and paste it in the application you want to lock e.g. Forticlient.

    Paste the password again in lockbox.pluckeye.net

    Screnshot:https://ibb.co/X3TBCtv

    Why I think this is the best way?

    because people, I mean kids, could trick their friends and tell them that they need the password urgently while they only want to watch porn. But here, you will have no choice but to wait.


    Tips from pros
    1-Telegram:

    A) Telegram contains some NSFW content. If you want to filter those and have a whatsapp-like experience on Telegram use Cloudveil messenger:

    https://www.cloudveil.org/cloudveil-messenger/

    Thanks @skaterdrew for sharing this!

    B) Teleteens: (Android and iOS)
    It lets you allow your safe groups and channels and block the rest. You could lock its settings using self-lock or by adding a parent (supervisor).
    https://teleteens.co/

    C)TelOchat: Another safe telegram client with all bad channels and groups blocked automatically. If you want to allow a group or a channel, you could request it.
    Only Android:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.telochat

    D)If Cloudveil desktop version is still allowing bad content, you could remove it and use Telegram Web version (https://web.telegram.org/) and filter it using pluckeye or cold turkey:

    USING COLD TURKEY:

    You will notice in Telegram web that each chat has its own unique URL, so you could just allow images and videos on safe chats that you want:
    Say for example that the following URL is for a safe chat:
    https://web.telegram.org/#/im?p=g488858590

    so you add to Cold Turkey exceptions:
    web.telegram.org*g488858590*

    Repeat this with chats that you need

    Now, you need to add any of the safe chats that you have allowed to your bookmarks (ctrl+d), use this bookmark to access telegram as the next rule will block access to telegram web home page. You don't need to bookmark all safe chats, only one is needed.

    Now add the following to your blocked sites:
    web.telegram.org/


    2-Activtrak:
    https://activtrak.com/
    This one is an accountability software that allows adding up to 3 devices for free. If you visit bad sites, it will send notifications to your friend/wife phone showing them what you have visited. It will make you think twice before trying to open porn.

    This one is different because most accountability softwares are not free.

    credits: @Mostly harmless for researching and sharing it.

    3-Media domains of famous sites:
    If you want to block images and videos on reddit, then block those:
    a.thumbs.redditmedia.com
    b.thumbs.redditmedia.com
    external-preview.redd.it
    i.redd.it
    preview.redd.it
    styles.redditmedia.com
    www.redditmedia.com
    v.redd.it
    redgifs.com

    If you want to block images & videos on twitter block those:
    pbs.twimg.com
    video.twimg.com

    If you want to block images and videos on discord, then block those:

    images-ext-1.discordapp.net
    images-ext-2.discordapp.net
    media.discordapp.net

    if you want even stricter filtering, also block this one as it will block profile pictures:
    cdn.discordapp.com

    4- Should quitting porn be your ultimate goal? Check out: elevatedrecovery.org
    PornReboot - YouTube
    (a tip from @Mostly harmless )

    Windows
    *Recommended applications:
    Forticlient 6.0: has a huge database of bad sites, system-wide blocker.
    Fapsecure: Enforces Cleanbrowsing DNS and more.
    Pluckeye: A powerful blocker. Blocks bad sites, enforces safe search & DNS servers & chrome extensions
    Cold Turkey: Blocks URLs using keywords.
    If you want to protect certain files from being deleted, try Easy File Locker (V2.0 will work well on windows 10 but newer versions suck)+ Anvi Folder Locker


    1-Forticlient 6.0 (better than the discontinued k9 web protection)

    -It may not work well with some anti-viruses as:

    1- Eset antivirus --> All Web pages will not load, or will load very slowly.
    ..........

    Why FortiClient?

    FortiClient has one of the LARGEST website categorization database. You will never find a porn site or a proxy site that’s not blocked by FortiClient.

    Also, it filters all apps including emulators like Bluestacks and Android Studio.
    It works well when you're connected to a VPN and all bad sites will remain blocked.
    It cannot be removed without its password

    The biggest downside with forticlient is that it causes problems with youtube and we will have to edit its settings to fix it.

    Must see before you Install:
    https://pasteboard.co/JEtl4Ci.png

    Official download link for v6.0.x:
    https://filestore.fortinet.com/forticlient/downloads/FortiClientOnlineInstaller_6.0.exe

    (IMPORTANT)Fixing youtube issues (comments not loading/restricted mode) + locking forticlient with a password :

    Allowing or blocking certain sites/site categories and viewing FortiClient's history of blocked sites (for troubleshooting):https://ibb.co/23XkRZk

    Check out Cold Turkey (below). I have added a configuration that blocks the known ways to bypass forticlient.
    If you find any way to bypass Forticlient, let me know, so I could fix it.

    2-Pluckeye (customize it to block only porn sites):
    This is one of the best blockers to exist. Do not skip it.
    https://forum.nofap.com/index.php?threads/pluckeye.300403/

    3-Fapsecure

    Can only be removed using its password or you will have to wait for 4 hours.

    Uses DNSCrypt to enforce a filtered DNS server that blocks all bad sites on all browser. By default, Cleanbrowsing Family will be used.

    If you want to use another server, you'll have to edit dnscrypt-proxy.toml file using notepad. It is located in "C:\Program Files\Mydns".
    You'll find this line:
    server_names = ['cleanbrowsing-family']
    Fapsecure uses this public DNS servers list:
    https://github.com/DNSCrypt/dnscrypt-resolvers/blob/master/v3/public-resolvers.md
    Now, if you want to use another DNS server, you need to get its name.
    The server names are the headings which are in bold. Let's say you want to use cloudflare family DNS. Look for cloudflare famliy DNS in the link above.
    cloudflare-family
    Cloudflare DNS (anycast) with malware protection and parental control - aka 1.1.1.3 / 1.0.0.3

    The server name is called cloudflare-family
    So edit the dnscrypt-proxy.toml file and replace cleanbrowsing-family with cloudflare-family
    server_names = ['cloudflare-family']

    You can't change the DNS server if fapsecure was executed. You need to stop it first by running fapsecure-stop from the start menu, hten run it again to update your DNS settings.


    Once you run fapsecure, it will generate a file called fapsecurepw.txt in your C: drive. It contains the password to remove fapsecure. Copy that password and paste it on lockbox.pluckeye.net by creating a new box. Don't forget to change the delay to a few hours (or more). Once you're sure that everything is working fine delete the password from the file fapsecurepw.txt.
    To uninstall, open Fapsecure-stop from start menu and paste the password using the right mouse click OR ctrl+v THEN press enter. If you lost the password, just enter 3 wrong passwords and fapsecure will be stopped after a delay of 4 hours.


    -Features of Fapsecure:
    *Enforces safe search on Google, Bing, Yandex.
    *Blocks other search engines like duckduckgo.
    *Blocks VPN/proxy extensions from the chrome store (They will never connect)

    *Fapsecure protects your date and time from being changed. This is very useful, if you want to lock Cold Turkey Blocker till a certain date. This requires rebooting your PC.
    *Changes your device's DNS to Cleanbrowsing family over DNSCrypt. More info here: (In short, Cleanbrowsing family blocks porn sites, proxies, VPNs, mixed sites, enforces safe search where possible and blocks unsafe search engines.)
    *If DNSCrypt fails, Neustar family DNS will be used over IPv4 adn IPv6.

    If you want to disable images on reddit, twitter or enable youtube restricted mode check out the cloaking_rules.txt in MyDNS folder. To block sites or keywords add them to blocked_names.txt (keyword blocking supported, but filters only words in domains and not the rest of the URLs)

    DNS changes will affect:
    *All of your interfaces interfaces (Wifi and Ethernet).
    *Both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols.
    But won't affect your home network, of course.


    Download:
    https://github.com/John889/fapsecure/raw/main/fapsecure-setup.zip
    If you want to enforce DNS servers other than Cleanbrowsing family, then try ForceDNS. But you'll have to remove fapsecure first..

    Fapsecure was tested on windows 8.1 and windows 10 with no problems.
    Windows 8, Windows 7 and vista need to install this windows update first:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54616

    -----
    If you get a missing .dll file error when running Fapsecure, this means you need to install Visual C++ redistributable x86 (size 13 MBs):
    https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x86.exe
    ----
    special thanks to @Infidel.48 for his support and ideas to improve fapsecure.

    5-K22 Process blocker
    (Shared by @Infidel.48
    An excellent free app blocker.
    Features:
    -Can block any process/exe/task
    -Can block by window names
    Video tutorial:

    Download page:
    scroll down to "Process Blocker"
    https://www.haascomputers.com/our_software
    The antivirus will block it but it's totally safe.

    It's recommended that you lock it using anvi and also check out how to protect services.

    -Protecting services:
    To protect a windows service from being stopped, modified or deleted; you could do this:
    1-Run cmd as administrator then use the following command. Replace servicename with the name of the service you want to protect:
    SC Failure servicename actions= restart/1/restart/1/restart/1/restart/1// reset= 0

    Now, even if you terminate the exe of that service, it will auto restart immediately.

    2-Change the service permissions using Service Security Editor:
    https://www.coretechnologies.com/products/ServiceSecurityEditor/
    Use this app to deny stop, modify and delete permissions of the service.


    6-Cold Turkey:

    Very similar to pluckeye, has the advantage of being able to block URLs using keywords.

    You could still use it along with pluckeye. You won't lose anything.

    Cold Turkey:
    https://getcoldturkey.com/

    Screenshot on how to use:
    https://pasteboard.co/JMg1XPP.png

    Screenshot on how to prevent easy bypass:
    https://ibb.co/Ks9SMjj
    Leave Block Date&Language off as it will cause high CPU usage.


    Import this list: (Thanks to @Mostly harmless for sharing it!)
    https://www.mediafire.com/file/i2fsvs8z6eqmbjp/Block+Lists+from+Sinner's+MacBook+Air.ctbbl/file

    IMPORTANT: This list blocks many google searches so you have to turn on Google Safe search to exclude Google from being blocked
    https://www.google.com/preferences Don't forget to click save.

    Cold turkey will block unsafe browsers that could be used to access porn.

    The custom blocklist:
    *Blocks porn/proxies/VPNs + VPN apps
    *Blocks sites that contain bad (porn) keywords.
    Note that this list blocks bad sites based on keywords
    *Blocks many tools that could be used to bypass the blockers.
    *Patches methods that are used to bypass forticlient and other similar blockers.

    You could edit the list as you wish.

    Hint:
    to block the google images search add this:
    *tbm=isch*
    to block the google videos search add this:
    *tbm=vid*
    (Create a new block and add those keywords, don't add them to the block I uploaded in this thread. It won't work)


    Which type of lock should you use?

    Leave it unlocked for a few days till you test the configuration.

    A)You could select the "Timer" option and lock it for a few days. You could change your system's date and time to bypass this, that's why fapsecure blocks date and time changes. Do not lock it for more than 7 days. Locking it for a long time doesn't mean you are not going to relapse. The configuration could block safe sites (keyword blocking) and you could end up wiping your windows to be able to access important sites and you'll relapse at that point as you'll end up with no blockers at all.

    B)You could buy a Cold turkey lifetime license for $39.This will let you password protect blocks. Use a random password that you can't remember and save it on lockbox.pluckeye.net. Don't delete the blocks that you password protect because you won't be able to password protect them again.



    Filterlock (optional):
    Disables system restore.
    Disables Fresh start in Windows Defender
    Disables Windows 10 reset.

    Download:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/86j200vq16ivpgc/Filterlock0.2.rar/file

    5-Qustodio:
    I had to mention qustodio because it's worth trying and you can install it together with any other filter but never use it alone.

    Features:

    *Blocks porn & proxies
    *Forces safe Google, youtube (moderate restrictions), bing, duckduckgo, etc.
    https://www.qustodio.com/en/family/downloads/

    You might want to sign up for an account using your friends email. After you login on the qustodio app on all of your devices. Ask your friend to change the qustodio account password.

    Disable safe mode (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

    We will have to edit the registry.
    https://www.raymond.cc/blog/disable-f8-key-to-block-access-to-safe-mode-during-windows-startup/2/

    ^Open the link and scroll down till you get to this part:

    “Editing The Windows Vista, 7 And 8 Registry”,

    Edit the registry but instead of renaming “Minimal” and “Network, delete them.

    Android (Still updating)
    -Test DPC
    https://forum.nofap.com/index.php?threads/android-device-policy-management-dpc.304668/
    It lets you:
    • Block uninstallation of select apps, prevent force stop of apps, block installation of any app, block installation of third party apps and APKs, suspend or hide certain apps you want to keep on the device but only use temporarily when unlocking restrictions through Test DPC.
    • enforce private DNS settings (CleanBrowsing), block VPN usage completely or prevent turning off a VPN
    • block Android System WebView app (This will block all in-app browsers but could make a few apps buggy)
    • disable ADB debugging and developer settings, prevent factory resetting of device, prevent multi user support and new user creation, disallow safe mode


    -Google Family Link:
    It works as a remote app lock. If you want to install a new app, it sends a notification to your accountability partner and he could approve or reject your request.

    It also prevents:
    *Installing apks without permission
    *Access to developer mode without permission (Blocks USB debugging/rooting)
    *Forces safe search on Chrome (and not other browsers)
    *Blocks porn on Chrome (still not perfect)
    *Blocks Safe mode by default.

    For step by step instructions, click here.
    Google family link can't be removed even when you factory reset your phone.


    -Digital Detox: (Thanks @Infidel.48 !)
    A must-try app.
    Features:
    *Impossible to bypass
    *Allow certain apps that you need.
    *Prevents bypassing Accessibility/Device Admin/Usage Access permissions.
    *Blocks recent apps to prevent bypassing filters
    Steps:
    1-On allowed apps list, click on main > select all
    2-Remove testDPC (and settings) from the list
    3-Important: click on show all apps and then search for home, then select your homescreen app, it differs with vendors.
    4-Disable emergency use (optional)
    5-Enable block power options to block safe mode.(optional)
    6-Activate device admin
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.urbandroid.ddc

    -Lock me out:
    Taking app locking to the next level. Another must-have.
    Block apps & sites and gives you a penalty (locks your phone), if you try opening blocked apps.
    If you lock the Play Store, you won't be able to install apks. (reported by @the300clean)

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teqtic.lockmeout&hl=en&gl=US

    -Keep Me Out: (Thanks @Infidel.48 !)
    A productivity app that lets you lock your phone completely for certain time. Useful for procrastinators.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=vikesh.dass.lockmeout&hl=en&gl=US


    -Using ADB to speed-up your phone's animations and transitions. (All credits to @Infidel.48 )

    This will make it impossible to bypass blockers and app locks even if you have very fast fingers.

    https://forum.nofap.com/index.php?threads/adb.305532/#post-2944852


    Now, for the actual porn blockers:

    -SPIN browser:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nationaledtech.spinbrowser&hl=en&gl=US

    -Blocks blocks porn, proxies, mixed sites
    -Search engines set to safe search.


    You'll have to use "Filter Chrome" to block browsers other than spin:

    This disables all in-app browsers and browsers other than SPIN browser which is filtered and safe.

    Download this version:
    https://m.apkpure.com/filter-chrome-app-blocker/com.nationaledtech.managespin/download/10560-APK?from=versions/version
    To prevent removal of this app, you'll need to activate its Device Admin permissions manually. So open your phone's settings and type in the search bar: device admin
    Now, you need to enable device admin permissions for Filter Chrome app.

    You could easily turn that off, so you'll have install "Adult Block" which blocks changes to Device Admins and Apps with accessibility permissions once you install it (Adult block will be discussed later)

    If you want to use the latest version of Filter Chrome, you'll need to use Test DPC to protect it from being uninstalled. As the device admin trick won't work with the newer version.
    If it doesn't block any browsers after you set it up then you probably have to turn off battery optimization options for Filter Chrome:
    https://community.useboomerang.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021784832-Battery-Optimizers-Huawei-devices

    https://community.useboomerang.com/...aomi-devices-and-Battery-Optimizers-Boomerang

    If you want to filter your Chrome browser using SPIN browser website categories then check out Boomerang Parental Controls. It has a 7-day free trial and its subscription is very cheap.

    -Pluckeye Browser: (thanks @Infidel.48 )

    Another good safe browser for android is pluckeye. You could import the same configuration that you use on your PC. It even supports flee rules.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.pluckeye.tober

    -Adult block:

    It locks accessibility and device admin screens in Settings, preventing anyone from removing apps from there.

    It can block apps by categories and even block installing new apps.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mw.adultblock


    Setting it up:

    After you do the steps in the video, if you try to remove/uninstall device admins, you'll fail.

    It's recommended that you lock Adult Block using a second applock such as:
    AppLock - Fingerprint:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sp.protector.free
    OR
    Applock by Domobile:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.domobile.applockwatcher&hl=en_US&gl=US
    (Don't forget to enable advanced protection)
    OR by using bull dog's applock:
    - Bulldog(Guardian Angel)

    Depending on your region, it might be called "Bulldog blocker" or "Guardian Angel".

    It enforces Cleanbrowsing DNS:
    *Standard Mode (Cleanbrowsing Adult DNS):
    Enforces safe search on Google and other search engines.
    Blocks porn sites.

    *Cautious Mode (Cleanbrowsing Family DNS)
    Sam as standard +Blocks reddit, twitter, proxies and mixed sites, enforces youtube restricted mode(no comments & blocks unsafe videos).

    You could use the native locking methods of Bulldog and you also lock bulldog using a separate app lock.
    Download:
    They are the same thing, just download the one available for your region.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.everaccountable.bulldog&hl=en

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.everaccountable.bulldog&hl=en&gl=US


    -ESET Parental Controls:
    *Excellent web filter
    *Powerful anti-tampering: Prevents changing battery optimization, low power mode, etc.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eset.parental&hl=en&gl=US

    -Bl.ockerX Premium modded apk:

    https://www.mediafire.com/file/1ipc4it51it3jyh/BlockerX_Premium_v4.6.09_Apk4all.com.apk/file

    Sign up using email and NOT Gmail. You could use https://temp-mail.org/en/ for a fake email.
    Check the junk folder for the verification email.




    Older versions:
    https://www.mediafire.com/file/2n7utey4u4l3ear/BlockerX_v4.6.06_Premium_Dlpure.com.apk/file

    https://www.mediafire.com/file/f59riye5odcr15o/BlockerX_Official_v4.5.01_Premium.apk/file

    I have listed other porn blockers in the following spoiler. You don't have to use them. Also, depending on your android version and your OEM (battery optimization), some of the following apps won't properly or might not even work at all:

    -Kaspersky safe kids:

    On android 10+, it will probably filter Chrome only.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kaspersky.safekids&hl=en&gl=US

    Excellent porn blocker that filters even in-app browsers. But it's still recommended that you block browsers other than chrome.

    As usual, you'll sign up using a friend's email or using a temporary mail. And for the password you'll type random letters in your "Notes" app on your phone and copy it and paste it as your account's password. Then you save BOTH the email and the password on lockbox.pluckeye.net. Kaspersky is not a joke. If you lost the email or the password, it would NEVER allow you to uninstall and if you tried to be a smart ass and attempted to mess around with your Device Admins, it will lock you out of all apps for some time.

    Setting up this one is a bit tricky as it will lock your phone's settings by default. So you'll have to login to https://my.kaspersky.com/ then select "kids" then "applications" then select your phone. Scroll down till you find settings and enable it.

    It also blocks many other apps by default like telegram and google play music, so check out all of the forbidden apps.

    Step 1: https://pasteboard.co/JJbMORf.png
    Step 2: https://pasteboard.co/JJbN7Wc.png

    You will also have to unblock categories other than porn and proxies under "Internet" tab:
    step 1: get to Internet tab

    step 2: Youtube restricted mode enable/disable (enabled by default)

    step 3: Allow other categories, and add nofap.com to allowed sites.

    And don't get fooled by its name. This is a very powerful system-wide porn blocker for android.

    iOS (iPhone/iPad)
    ُThere are a few ways to block porn on your iPhone:

    1-Built-in iOS web filter.
    2-Safari Content Blockers.
    3-Proxies.
    4-Safe browsers.
    Update: Entering Supervised mode allows you to do much more like enforcing a DNS, disable Find My app:https://forum.nofap.com/index.php?t...rvised-mode-without-wiping-your-phone.305431/
    The first 3 are system-wide which means they filter all applications.


    It's recommended that you do the following steps in order:


    1-SPIN browser: The top rated safe browser on the app store


    This one is a quality porn blocker and has a HUGE categorization database . I tried to find any way to access porn on this browser but I found none that's because they regularly fix backdoors.

    Download:
    https://apps.apple.com/us/app/spin-safe-browser/id1069119528

    After you've downloaded it, you need to uninstall other browsers on your device leaving only Safari.

    Actually, Safari is not the last browser left. There is Webview which is the in-app browser that opens up when you click links inside some apps. It's the same as Safari but with less features. You can't disable Webview but you can use those 2 apps (both of them are needed): (credits to @Dobrethatface @Mostly harmless)
    Image Blocking
    https://apps.apple.com/us/app/image-blocking/id1042605950
    Image Blocker
    https://apps.apple.com/us/app/image-blocker-browse-the-web-faster-leaner-and-safer/id1031388281

    After downloading the 2 apps, go to: iPhone "Settings" > Safari > Content blocker and enable it.

    This app is going to block all images and videos on Webview and on Safari.

    Right now, you only have two browsers: SPIN and Safari but no images will load on Safari. I personally didn't disable Safari because I use it to open reddit and other potentially unsafe sites which are completely blocked by SPIN.

    To prevent turning Content blockers off, we'll need to enable "limit adult content" in iOS Screen time (will be discussed later on)
    3-Using Profiles
    This Profile will enforce safe search and block bad sites that could be missed by the iOS built-in porn blocker and SPIN. It works for iOS 14+ devices only. It also blocks instagram, tiktok, tumblr, pinterest, snapchat, unsafe search engines ,and images and videos on reddit and twitter. It needs to be downloaded from Safari browser or you could send it to yourself as an attachment in an email and open it from the Mail app. You could also airdrop it to your iPhone from a mac.
    https://www.mediafire.com/file/c3ku1ewr3cdhlrk/safesurfer.mobileconfig/file
    You could do a lot more with profiles, if you're on supervised mode.

    Screen Time (Thanks, @BeingBett3r for your tips!)
    There are two ways to set up Screen Time:
    A) Remote method, where a friend can change your restrictions from his phone, by linking your Apple ID to his through Family Sharing.
    B) PIN method, your friend will have to enter a PIN on your phone and change your settings every time you need to do it.



    For the remote method, you will have to change your Apple ID age to 14 years old, this will allow you to set someone else as your parent. Then you will have to turn off screen time from Settings>Screen Time, if you have it on. That's because people could use Family Sharing to bypass Screen Time settings that's already in place.

    (more to be added on how to set up the remote method)



    Either way, we'll have to do the following changes:
    *Limit adult content: This is the built-in iOS porn blocker. It
    Filters all apps, can block custom domains and locks Safari Content Blockers. However, it's not 100% accurate and you can't completely depend on it.
    *Disable installing apps. You could set apps to 12+ instead, when you do that many apps like Telegram will be disabled. If you want filtered Telegram clients try: Teleteens or Cloudveil messenger. Those are rated 4+.
    (You'll have to enable installing apps periodically to update your apps.)
    *Disable uninstalling apps.

    *Ensure that everything content wise is set to Clean setting: Movies, TV shows, Book Store, Podcasts, Video)


    For iOS 13 and above, you will be asked to enter an Apple ID when setting up Screen Time from settings. Do not use your Apple ID or you'll be able to reset the Screen Time passcode.
    You could let a friend enter his Apple ID or create a new one here: https://appleid.apple.com/account.
    Use Temp mail to sign up:https://temp-mail.org
    It will ask for a phone number, so use Textcaller app for this.
    Use a random password and save the Apple ID and the password on lockbox.pluckeye.net

    Setting up Screen Time:
    iOS 12+: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmGv7pSR

    iOS 11 and below: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmGv5xDq

    Extra:
    A)Disabling and locking Find my iPhone through screen time:
    1-From Settings, turn location services for "Find My" off
    1-From settings ,click on your apple ID (the first item in settings).
    2-Turn "Find My" off. (In older iOS versions: Click on icloud -->find my iphone then turn it off.)
    3-Go to Screen Time>Content &privacy restrictins>Location Services. Change "Find My iPhone" to Never then click on "Don't allow changes" in Location Services.



    B)Prevent using Recovery mode: (credits to @Dobrethatface
    Block the following processes using Pluckeye and/or Cold Turkey.
    itunes.exe
    applemobiledeviceprocess.exe
    applemobiledevicehelper.exe

    instagram pintrest snapchat tiktok tumblr, images on reddit and twitter.
    4-DNSCloak
    This a DNS changer for iOS but can't be enforced.

    https://apps.apple.com/us/app/dnscloak-secure-dns-client/id1452162351

    Even though the SPIN, the content blockers together with the iOS porn blocker will block ALL of porn sites (as they filter using keywords) and enforce Safe search, I really recommend using DNSCloak as it's one the best filters on the App store and it will perfect this method. DNSCloak is also important if you want to customize the filtering on your iPhone if you're using a DNS filter on your router.

    Open DNSCloak and type in the search: safesurfer
    Select "safesurfer" and select "Use this server"


    Click the button on the top left for DNSCloak settings and make sure "On demand" is ON.

    Now click back then click the button on the top right corner and let your friend set a passcode for DNSCloak.

    Router
    1- Call your ISP and ask them to filter your home internet from porn sites. You could do the same for your mobile data ISP.

    2- Force Cleanbrowsing DNS on your router

    Step by step screenshot tutorial: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157710640348857/with/48655167306/


    Stage One:
    Login to your router by visiting 192.168.1.1 in your web browser.


    Username: admin
    Password: admin

    If incorrect look at the back of your router or google your router’s model.

    In the router’s page, look for:
    Primary DNS server
    Secondary DNS server


    (Routers are different, so DNS options could be anywhere, keep looking)

    Change the primary DNS server to 185.228.168.168
    and change the secondary to 185.228.169.168


    Then save.

    (PS You could use whatever DNS you like. The DNS above is Cleanbrowsing family DNS. I prefer it because it forces safe search on Google and other search engines, also youtube. You can report sites that should be blocked to this email: [email protected] , and they will be blocked within 24 hours.)

    Stage two:

    Now all devices connected to your router will have filtered internet. But anyone could bypass the filter by changing the DNS on his device. To solve this problem we will create some simple rules on our router to block other DNS servers.

    Go to IP filter and add those rules: (you can modify them according to your preferred DNS server)

    Rule1:https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/48654810538/in/album-72157710640348857/

    Rule2:https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/48655167306/in/album-72157710640348857/


    N.B If your router doesn’t support blocking IP ranges, It won’t work.

    Stage three:
    Put a few drops of Superglue on the router’s RESET button while it’s still on. (to avoid gluing the fan!)


    Change the router login password. (A family member should do this or a friend using Teamviewer for example).

    macOS

    Linux
    Chromebooks
    Tips from @gabriel_sw1

    These are the programs I used to block on the Chromebook:
    Appblock by Mobilesoft
    DNSChanger set in DNS Clean Browsing Family Filter
    Google Family Link (the most important of all in my opinion)
    And I HIGHLY recommend that you try to install TestDPC on your Chromebook. I was trying to download but I had to sell my chromebook.

    The Chromebook has loopholes like Guest Browsing, Factory Reset, Sites that the DNS does not block, etc. Google Family Link blocks things like Guest Browsing and websites that you want. I recommend that you follow the Sinner guide to get started, as I also suggest that you have a chat process with someone you trust and can help you set up Google Family Link

    Appblock is used to block "Settings", "Dnschanger" etc.
    It must be blocked by a pin that a trusted person sets for you.

    I already explained Dnschanger, activate the always-on vpn option in the mobile settings and configure the app.

    I haven't tested it, but I'm 80% sure that TestDPC also works on the Chromebook, and you must have the app to block Factory Reset, things like that. If you are going to download TestDPC do not forget to release the developer mode of the Chromebook and access the USB Debugging.

    I have tried blocking porn very much but it never helped - when I made the dumb decision to relapse, no blocker, addon or password could stop me. But it's a good way to have a psychological barrier, like, while dealing with undergoing it it can remind you of why you are doing that so it may help many people, thanks for sharing these!

    Sorry, I don't know the names anymore but they were porn blocker addons for google chrome. I tried two different versions, one was bypassed by just uninstalling it and the other one was asking for a password even when uninstalling but 2 minutes of google and I was able to uninstall them too. I'm not even tech savvy, I just don't think you can build a porn blocker so strong it can't be bypassed with a bit of google skills ...

    This is important of course! But it becomes very hard to think about the consequences of your actions when porn is only a few clicks away. I believe if we use all the tools we have whether they are porn blocker or psychological barriers as you said, we could save our selves from many pathetic relapses.
    Same, many filters have failed me. But I've found out that I have been using the wrong ones. I have posted only filters that can't be bypassed or uninstalled by the tech savvy porn addict. I would appreciate it if you could tell me the filters that didn't work for you.

    Addons are always easy to remove. That's why I haven't included any!
    I have some programming skills and I have created 2 programs for windows. The first is forceDNS, it changes your DNS to cleanbrwosing DNS and prevents you from changing it. The second is fapsecure, it forces safe search on google and many other search engines and blocks thousands of porn & proxy sites and it can't be uninstalled or terminated (set it and forget it). Trust me, those programs are different.

    Have you tried any programs other than those addons?

    I think the porn blocker is great when you don't go looking because it feels like you're safe.

    However, as spiderwaffle eluded to, every time I've wanted to watch it I've gone and done it by finding a way around it, whether that be restarting the phone, closing the app specifically so the right one overlays so I can turn them off one by one. I've had passwords on them, app locker everything but if you're smart enough you'll find a way around them.

    Same here, I feel very safe when my blockers are on especially fortinet's forticlient, just relaaaaaaax because the porn is locked away *sigh*
    I know that apps can't beat humans, you can always outsmart a stupid program. But it gives you time to think, maybe you'd change your mind. It's much better than just starting incognito mode and opening your favorite pornstar page in under 5 seconds. Some people think it's a damn challenge and enjoy getting around blockers. Don't do that cuz blockers are here to help and save you from a relapse. That's why I have put blockers that can't be removed by most people.
    Have you tried Domobile Applock's advanced protection??? because it even works in safe mode. It's never easy to bypass.

    For me it's a challenge and it adds to the rush. Blockers don't work for me at all.

    Only blocker I can confirm works on Linux if anyone was wondering is Pluckeye, however it also seems to block most functions of my package manager so it's not suitable for long-term use. If anyone has alternative system-wide porn blockers to pluckeye that work on Linux I would be grateful.

    I have done some research and check those out:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/dansguardian/files/ It hasn't been updated since 2012, but who knows, it may be useful.
    https://github.com/e2guardian/e2guardian A fork of Dansguardian and it had an update 2 months ago.
    https://nxfilter.org/p3/download/ It supports linux, but I don't know if it's useful when you're trying to lock yourself from porn.
    There is another one, but their site is down at the moment. I will check it out once they bring it back online.

    I was curious, why do you use linux. You know most people use windows nowadays.

    Thank you! I'll give them a look.


    Customisability, privacy, runs way faster whilst looking nicer, and not to accuse you of ignorance but we aren't living in 2005 anymore ;) and almost all windows software (including games) can be run on linux using wine/proton or failing that virtualisation software. The only hurdle is stuff that literally affects things at a system level; like systemwide porn blockers.

    Most of the time my willpower works fine, I've managed to cut down on pmo a lot recently.

    But I've realised that PMO is probably a symptom rather than a cause. I'm sure I don't get enough social contact and that's what's causing me to need pmo. Although the rest of my life is good, it's one area that I am definitely lacking. Once I move out I'll have a lot more opportunity to socialise. I also think talking to more girls and just going for it with them, rather than being worried about rejection/embarrassment will help. I'm sure once I'm having regular sex the desire for porn will completely go away. I have opportunities, just need to take them rather than shy away

    Please, tell me if anything works.

    Hey Gorge, I wanted to ask a question. I have bought a lenovo laptop that comes without windows. I checked their website and the uploaded only drivers for windows 10. After I installed windows 10, I found out that the device is extremely slow, completely useless.
    Could I try linux? If yes, then which version?
    But I'm afraid that linux won't recognize most of the hardware.

    Thanks xXsinnerXx for this great job, it's the first time I've seen a method that seems to work with PluckEye. But I get this error message in the terminal when I embed your code:
    Failed to parse 'clear'.

    Is this a problem related to the operating system (Catalina)? Sorry to ask computer questions on this forum, but I really believe in the deterrent power of this kind of software ...

    It's okay, that's why I included "pluck clear" before you import the code, because "clear" may not work when imported on new pluckeye versions. You get an error for importing clear, but everything should work fine.
    Glad you like it!
