Filters and Apps to Help with Blocking Porn

Below we have provided suggestions for filters and apps. These independent platforms are separate to Porn Resilient Kids and provided for informational purposes only. We recommend that users of our site investigate the right platform(s) for you and your family. 

We are HUGE advocates for education and conversations. Filters by themselves are not enough – it’s not a matter of if your child sees porn, but when.

For children who have been harmed by pornography and require therapeutic services, families may find assistance through the support of school wellbeing teams or community counsellors/psychologists. In Australia, Kids Helpline is a valuable resource. For families with older children who may be looking for online recovery support, visit the Youth Wellbeing Project page on filters, apps and recovery resources.
