How to Block Adult Websites on an iPhone

Edited by Maria, Eng

Whether you are a parent trying to block adult websites on your iOS or a person that does not want to come across this content, Apple has implemented ways to control your viewing content. This is particularly a good feature for someone that is battling a porn addiction or for someone who wants to avoid the temptation. There are millions of websites that contain adult content that we come across daily without even realizing it, until we see something that clearly shows us to stay off the site. Searching the word "Sunny" can bring up pornographic images. Here is how you can block these images and websites from appearing in searches.
