I work with sex addicts (Stages 1-4) who desperately want and need a porn filter
on their phones that has no backdoors and which is made for adults. All of my clients
would pay a significant premium for a filter that is unbreakable and would protect them.
At this point the only way they can use their phone is to have no browser and no Apps.
Some of the things that they need are ...
A remote administrator system that is allowed to make changes to the filter but can not be changed by the client.
A way to totally block major social media sights (which are full of backdoors) like Facebook, Google and YouTube.
An extensive Black and White List ... that actually works!!!
An extensive Black List of English, Spanish, German, French and Portuguese porn sites.
An extensive way to filter apps. so that they will not provide back doors and a way to keep Apps from being added.
A secure Web Browser.
The prevention of adding a VPN.
A separate DNS that could not be changed would be great!
I have been trying to work with OPENDNS and their PROSUMER line. But they are difficult.
OPEN DNS is not the first fitlering system that I have tried. Most have back doors, are too expensive, difficult to use, were made for children, or have a virus in their system. Most of them are a joke and can be broken with a limited knowlege of the internet.
In the past I have used and explored programs like…
Apple Parental Controls
BSecure Web Filter
Mighty Text Pro
Phone Company Fitler Systems…
Setting the Captives free
True Vine Online
Verizon I hope that you can come up with something to use with cell phones that is made for hard core sex addicts and adults who are stupid
enough to risk their lives, marriages, families, future generations, their reputation, jobs, relationships and in some cases are willing to go to prison!
I think you've answered your own question in your last paragraph. Some of these people will do anything and risk everything. You cant stop that behavior with an app any more than an app could stop an alcoholic from drinking or a drug addict from using. Even if you found the perfect app, what's to keep them from getting another "secret" phone? Sorry, but an app isn't the answer.
Verizon doesn't need a porn filter, your clients need self control and if they don't have that, they don't need access to internet capable devices. I'd rather my carrier not be a babysitter for people.
