Why should I use a porn blocker?

Why Use a Porn Blocker

According to a survey conducted by the London School of economics is 2002, 9 out of 10 school aged children have viewed pornographic material on the internet. As anyone can tell you, many of these sites target innocent search terms and keywords and most children will click on a URL in search results not knowing what they will see then the site loads. For reasons like this a porn filter becomes an obvious investment for your home computer.

Email Security Sniffers

A "sniffer" is a sofware program that runs on a computer in a network and looks for specific words and phrases in the data that flows through it. Hackers sometimes use them to spy on people by looking for email addressed to certain people or mentioning certain subjects. Firewalls also use sniffers as internet filters to look for information. For example, you could instruct the firewall to block any packet with the word "X-rated" in it. The only catch is that it has to be an exact match. The "X-rated" porn filter would not catch "X rated" (no hyphen). But you can include as many words, phrases and variations of them as you need.

   
Why is a porn blocker so important?

The Power of the Pornographic Industry

Pornography is incredibly prevalent on the web today and this is a direct result of the power of the porn industry. Recent studies show that there is over 10 billion dollars spent on pornographic materials each year. There are over 2 million known pornographic web sites with over 2500 new sites being developed each week. A lot of the websites and companies are overseas and are therefore not regulated by US law. All of this is readily available to any internet user unless you are using a porn blocker. The software is available, so you should consider protecting your children from internet porn today.
