Although it is not a silver-bullet solution, filtered Internet service can help block sexual temptation before it enters your house. Unlike filtering software that is installed on your PC, it may not require additional cost or maintenance, it cannot be hacked around, and it does not require a password.
REMEMBER, THIS ONLY TREATS THE SYMPTOMS. The cure is a sustained and growing relationship with Christ – and daily building your faith

Pros: It has the same filtering capabilities as SafeEyes. I also find its keyword blocker better than that of SafeEyes. Something I just remembered is that it has a feature that is supposed to keep kids from predatory chat, though I haven’t checked it out myself. ContentBarrier also has a way to schedule time on the internet, and you can even limit the amount of time in a particular block of time, say 30 minutes from 9-11 AM. Use the same procedure as above to keep yourself from turning it off. This filter is strictly for Mac. Cons: The same kinds of weakness as SafeEyes, but for some reason they don’t overlap. If anything, ContentBarrier can be too protective. One major flaw is that it can be bypassed, though I won’t mention how. You have to be rather tech-savvy to get around it.

Pros: Filters the router and in turn every device that is receiving internet through the router. Easy to set up and update. Allows the user to add websites that are not already blocked by filter.
