A PORN FILTER, WHAT IS THAT?

Porn filters are a technical solution that limits access to pornography on the internet by, for example, blocking access to some websites and hiding pornographic pictures and movies. Porn filters are also called content filters, web filters and internet filters.

HOW DO I GET PORN FILTER?

There are three ways to get porn filters on the internet at home and on smartphones:

1. Enable/activate porn filters found on search engines and digital devices including smartphone

2. Contact your telephone and/or internet provider

3. Subscribe to or obtain a porn filter service from an external company

Keep in mind that porn filters should always be combined with regular and age-appropriate conversations about porn.

WHY DO WE NEED PORN FILTER?

Internet porn has become young people’s main source of sexual education because of the free accessibility via smartphones, tablets and computers (digital devices). Porn can reach children in preschool through e.g. pop-up ads and linked movies. There are no guarantees that a porn filter is one hundred percent reliable, it’s not unusual some content slips through considering the enormous amounts of porn material on the internet – but it’s of course better to block most of it than nothing at all. Therefore, it is important that you as a parent tries out the porn filter you have chosen in order to understand how it works, or not works. It might also be a good idea to remove the option of surfing on the internet or on search engines, such as Google, by themselves, at least for the youngest children, since there could be linked porn movies or porn pop-up ads.

A porn filter should always be combined with regular and age adapted porn critical conversations. You as a parent cannot lean back and assume that a porn filter will do the job or that your child understands and can make the difference between sex and the aggressive behaviour in mainstream porn. Luckily, you as a parent can make a massive difference by talking with your child in an age adapted way. We help you with expert tips and facts about porn on the internet.

PORN FILTER IN PUBLIC ENVIRONMENTS

We hope that SKL, Sweden’s Municipalities and County Councils, will soon declare their new guidance on web filters regarding municipal activities for children, such as preschool and schools. SKL appointed a project on this matter in March 2019 but has not announced when the guidance will be declared.

We hope to influence other wi-fi networks in public areas where children spend time as well, including restaurants, malls, playgrounds and libraries.
