Default Internet filter for android?

Hi, I just got my HTC Desire the other day and I'm looking for a family friendly internet filter (aka. Web protection, Net safety, internet security) app for my phone that will block any mature content from the devices browser. At the moment I can't find anything- but I know these forums are the best on the web- so, if a net family filter android app exists, I know someone on here will be able to tell me about it!
Many thanks!

Default App Lock Solution

It sucks that there are no current web filters for the Android and I hope one is developed soon. In the meantime you can lock access to the browser, setting up a password to access it. You could just give the password to a trusted friend (or your spouse) and just ask them for the password when there is something you want to get on the internet for.

I know this sounds really limiting but it is worth it if you are pursuing purity (honoring God, your body, and your current/future wife). There are a few different options available to App locks so find one that fits. Here are some links to a couple of them:

App Safe (Free)
App Safe for Android

Carrot App Lock
Carrot App Lock Free for Android

Default Accountability

There is also an accountability app out. It doesn't block sites but it will send a report to a friend of what sites you have visited. Then they can keep you accountable if you are seeking purity or show you if your child is accessing porn.

Here is a link:

App Safe (Free)
I need clarification on something, can this app (App Safe) in fact make it to where the internet cannot be used at all unless the password is entered?
