    Hi all. I have purchased an andriod, Galaxy S3. Great phone!

    I need to (for myself) be able to block porn videos. (Still images are not a problem for me.) (And enough said.) I have been looking on the web and there are quite a few and, as you can imagine, many reviews which say opposite things. How to choose??

    So, I am wondering what you and/or your friends might have experienced in making a choice. What app did you choose, and why?

    Note: I need to be able to set up the app with a friend who would be the only one to be able to Uninstall the app. If I am able to Uninstall, then obviously that defeats the purpose.

    Thanks!

    Frank

    why would you need to block such videos if you are not looking for them?

    I have no experience with apps to block this sort of thing. My suggestion is simply to try them. If there are free ones, install one and try it out. If you're not satisfied, try another. Perhaps two in combination will work better than any one of them (or maybe you can't run more than one--but give it a try).

    If the free ones don't do the job, try paid ones. Try one, and if it doesn't work, request a refund. You actually have 48 hours to get a refund:

    As for why the OP wants to do this, that's hardly any of our business.

    Turn on Google Safe Search from your account.

    That's what I'm thinking, I never see porn or other adult content unless I'm specifically looking for it. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the replies. I guess the way to go is to purchase one, try it, and if not satisfied, then notify the company. Thanks, myerweb.

    For those of you implicitly wondering why I would want this, well, if it were as easy as using Safe Search (or something like that) I would. Obviously, I have a problem and I'm trying to use various resources to solve it. "Just say no" doesn't work.

    The OP has been honest enough to explain his reasons to a group of total strangers, so the least that we can do in return is help. Please any other comments else to yourself.

    How about using AdAway to block them out?
