Frequently Asked Questions
📱 Is blocking adult sites directly on the iPhone without an app possible?
Yes, it's possible, but the problem is that the list of iPhone sites also includes sites that aren't at all inappropriate —such as clothing sites (because of the lingerie), so it can mess up your Internet browsing. On Jomo, you can add exceptions if some of these websites are blocked. Moreover, you can add other websites of your choice —like OnlyFans, which on some iPhones isn't detected as a Porn Website.
Here's where to find this option if you still want to use this method: Screen Time > Content and Privacy Restrictions > Turn toggle on > Content Restrictions > Web content > Limit Adult Websites.
🚫 Can you also block porn sites on iPad?
Indeed, this trick works for iPads as well. And your large screen is not a reason to leave these inappropriate sites accessible. Jomo also works well on iPad, and the adult websites blocking option will soon be available on Mac so that you can protect all your devices!
🌐 Can adult sites be blocked via DNS on iPhone?
Blocking adult sites using specific DNS that block inappropriate content is also possible. OpenDNS Family Shield is one of them, and you will need to set it up manually in your iPhone settings (Settings > WiFi > Information of your WiFi > Configure DNS > Manual).
It is important to be aware of the harmful effects of adult sites and limit your exposure to these inappropriate contents. It's not a matter of taboo but for health, and numerous scientific studies attest to these negative effects: addiction, deterioration of the quality of interpersonal relationships, dependence, unrealistic expectations in intimate life... there are a lot of cons!
Fortunately, with the Jomo app and various blocking methods available on iOS devices, it is possible to take easy actionable steps now to block adult sites on your iPhone or your child's device.
