Porn sites are a problem if you are a parent with children or a working professional that needs to remain focused. These sites can also deliver dangerous malware and viruses to your system when viewed. Webroot Internet Security Plus can indirectly block the dangerous effects porn sites can have on your computer but does not block them directly.

Anti-Malware Protection Helps

Besides being a distraction, porn sites can deliver malware and Trojans through video codecs. These are a type of online video program that encodes or decodes digital data streams. Codecs need to be downloaded and installed to view the video content on adult websites. They can also be infected or used to spread dangerous malware that can disrupt your system. Webroot Internet Security Plus can detect and remove malware that arrives via a video-based adult website. It cannot, however, prevent a user from visiting one of these sites.

Other Tools Exist To Block Porn Websites

OpenDNS

Open DNS is a company and service provided by CISCO Systems. It provides extra online services when its DNS servers are used. It has online filtering and pre-set protections that can block adult websites for enterprise and home users.

OpenDNS is just one of many DNS server products to choose from that can help stop adult, gambling, and violent content from getting on your screen.

Free Porn Blocking Tools For Download

Many free software packages exist that you can use to block porn sites on the internet. Some of these include:

  • Blue Coat K9 Web Protection
  • Microsoft Family Safety
  • BlockSmart
  • uBlock Origin (Firefox browser)
  • AdGuard DNS

To Recap…

Keeping a screen clear of adult content is a priority amongst parents and professionals. Webroot Internet Security Plus can help by stopping and removing dangerous malware that may come from adult websites. However, having an additional content-blocking tool installed and running on your system, or using special DNS server software may be what is required for this.
