Safe Surfer: Porn Filter and App Blocker

Built to be simple to use, protecting your device with Safe Surfer is as easy as tapping the Get Protected button.

Safe Surfer is packed full of features to enable you and your family to surf the Internet without fear:

Safer surfing
Safe Surfer blocks a wide range of pornographic and adult websites. Once protection is enabled, these websites cannot load on your device.

Pin protection
Built-in pin lock functionality ensures that only you or an accountability partner can configure protection and other settings inside the app.

Screencast detection
Powered by machine learning, Screencast detection is a new way to deter the viewing of inappropriate content. When Screencast detection is enabled and triggered, a screenshot is taken and stored securely within the app, along with the screen being temporarily blacked out.

Advanced machine learning settings
Our customisable Screencast detection machine learning model enables you to adjust content classifiers for nudity thresholds, and even more.

Wi-Fi and Cellular protection
Safe Surfer protection keeps your device protected—no matter what kind of network you are connected to.

Zero ads and low resource footprint
Safe Surfer is ad-free and has a minimal impact on your device's resources.

• This app is free and open-source software (FOSS). If you are interested in contributing to its development, please visit our GitLab page:
