    Not sure if this has been answered, or not, but is there a possibility of using a VPN along with the Clean Browsing DNS set-up?

    I want to have a more private browsing experience, in general, and I think setting up a VPN would be key.

    Also, has anyone actually called their ISP and asked to block adult content? Did it work? How did that convo going?

    Depends on the VPN type. Which one do you use?
    My ISP sucks and doesn't offer blocking p sites

    Hi!
    Digital Detox works perfect. Using nearby feature you can bypass it but if you block status bar and remove nearby share from status bar you will be fine. So It works perfect. I’m trying for days to bypass it but there is no way. Impossible. My problem is whatsapp. As I said earlier, I only need whatsapp but unfortunately you can easily access -as easy as using a browser- micro bikini pics etc. If you go to a group and tap on group picture then tap on search on web you will be able to access some pictures. I have a solution for this but I didnt try yet. Are there any apps that will block connection to specific addresses. If I can block access to bing.com and tenor/giphy I will be able to use whatsapp safely.

    I have an account with my ISP that allows me to block adult content as well as other categories. But I don't actually use it.

    Arguably though your ISP could do a lot in terms of restrictions that couldn't be bypassed. But the incentive wouldn't be there for them to do it.

    I remember one time my ISP blocked third party DNS from all it's customers, and a massive amount of it's customers complained so much about it that they had to allow third party DNS again. But if they have the ability to do that, they could literally block third party DNS, VPN's the lot. I honestly reckon if they really wanted to ISP's could make an unbelievably air tight blocking system for it's customers. But again the incentive isn't there to do it.

    The majority of customers don't want to be restricted. But if ISP's thought a massive amount of their customers want a really air tight blocking system. I honestly think they could create that quite easily.

    hey!
    Have you tried keyword blocking using Adult Block (latest version)? Let me know if you find a solution.
    I am not sure how that one works but it's good you found a way to fix it.

    Hi!
    I formatted my phone and I'm working on WhatsApp Issue. I will try Adult Block. Here is my Android Setup:
    I'm using Test DPC to disallow safe mode, suspend Settings, Chrome. I'm using Digital Detox to block access. I disabled Samsung Keyboard because using in-built youtube feature of samsung keyboard, you will be able to listen some asmr moan stuff (you have to copy video link to whatsapp). Use adb to disable samsung keyboard. Use an app called Simple Keyboard. Btw, disable status bar from Digital Detox and remove everything from status bar. Just keep necessary things. This is my setup. It is impossible to bypass Digital Detox. But, you can access some horny pics using Whatsapp. Whatsapp is using Bing Pictures to search a group picture and using giphy and tenor for gifs.

    Possible Solutions:
    Using keyword feature of adult block. (Thanks to xxsinnerxx for tip)
    Blocking connections to bing.com giphy.com and tenor.com using an app. Please let me know If there is an app to do it. If you have any idea please let me know.

    I can't use Adult Block because with Android 11 update you have to install ca certificates manually. Please help.

    PROBLEM SOLVED. @xXsinnerXx I recommend you to add NetGuard to the tutorial. I installed NetGuard Pro Apk (I can't afford it, but if you can please support developer) and blocked connections. It logs all connections. Just open whatsapp, and send a gif to someone and set a group picture by using search web feature. There will be new records on logs. Block everything about bing and tenor. Go to set group picture and search for anything else (this is a necessary step). And it will work. BTW you have to visit Don't Kill My App. Some phones are killing background apps automatically. You can prevent it.
    Disable LTE use 3G instead. BTW I'm sorry for my English, I'm doing my best to develop my English skills myself. Unfortunately our education system sucks.

    Looks like a nice app! Do you think it could be used for anything else other than blocking whatsapp image search? Also, why do you need to switch to 3G?

    Man, you don't need to install the ca certificate, just skip that and go to keyword blocking directly. The ca certificate is for the VPN and you won't even need it.

    There are too many scenarios. Basically If you don't want to block whole app but you need to block some parts to access internet you can use this app. I blocked youtube also so I will not have any access to youtube videos on whatsapp and I will be able to use Samsung Keyboard safely. BTW I'm not using Test DPC anymore. My computer is not working so I have a computerless setup. I'm using Family Link + Digital Detox + NetGuard. Works cool for now.
    I skipped that part and added "web" keyword to blocklist but it didn't work. Probably It was my fault.

    It uses a VPN connection to block connections. The VPN should support ipv6 to work with LTE. It works fine with LTE as I know but I'm not sure. BTW you have to block googlevideo.com in order to block youtube videos on whatsapp.

  17. (this reply has nothing to do with the quoted message)
    I was reading a message of yours before. You said that We could start app after reboot automatically. Problem is that I can reboot the phone and there is a time gap where I can deny permissions to particular blocking app and thus access everything.
    You can mention way to do this with Test DPC or if it is not possible with it, please mention any other way.

  18. I had a lot of problem setting up Test DPC and thus I had to factory reset my MI Device but now its done (I don't know what problem was? Even if I removed all accounts from MI device. It still showed in CMD that accounts are logged. But, yeah, its solved now.)
    I was checking TestDPC and had a lot of problem doing stuff and finding options. Some are self explanatory but others are complex. Could you please make a thread that explains options and what they do?

    Also there is option to set permissions for main stuff(like location, storage, etc.) using TestDPC such that they can't be changed. But there is a option in MI devices called Other Permissions(contains permissions like Display over other apps). Is there a way to set other permissions for specific apps such that they can't be changed from normal settings? and Also How to enable accessibility for an app permanently(set accessibilty services doesn't seems to make it permanent)?

    Other is : Apps stop if I reboot the device and thus there is a time to change the Other permissions. Any method for this?

    Also Have you tried using Cloudflare Family DNS? I think it is better than Cleanbrowsing DNS. You should try. Even I used to use Cleanbrowsing Family DNS but I think it doesn't blocks a lot of sites and also reporting system is not good. Though Cloudflare doesn't blocks reddit,etc and doesn't restricts YouTube, it is still better and you can do those thing is other ways also.
    Primary DNS : 1.1.1.3
    Secondary DNS : 1.0.0.3
    I really think it is better and you can use dnsblacklist/org(replace / with dot) to check differences.

    And Yes, If you have in-built app locker you can just lock testdpc (give password to someone or use pluckeye lockbox).

    Thanks.

  19. If theres a developer in the thread ,we can Mod testDPC and make it password protected.
    For WhatsApp ,lock it on your phone with a complicated pwd.
    lock it with a small delay of 10min
    use whatsappweb

    Its not that unsafe btw, I didn't find anything triggering .
    or like ali use NetGaurd its better.
    Actually netgaurd is very good, I used to use it ,as you can access the internet unblocked with WebView in random apps. I think you can add familyDNS and do a lot of things

    Hey!

    I’m not using a XiaoMi so I really have no idea but there are a few people who are using xiaomi in nofap forums, ask them for help. I think you should try Family Link.
