Did we mention we protect your whole device and not just your browser? All apps get their content by making requests to web servers. (Often referred to as API's). We monitor these connections in real time to make sure you are protected no matter what app you use.
We don't believe that you should be confined to a third party web browser to be protected. We filter the majority of your apps and browsers, meaning you're covered no matter what browser/app you use. See Common Questions for more info.
Other apps use DNS filtering to detect the names of sites you visit. Our software analyzes pages in real time to determine the actual content of the page. This allows us to catch what others miss.
Because you can't do it alone. Software is not the solution to pornography addiction, it is simply a tool. Lasting freedom is found in community and accountability. When you add an accountability partner, they will receive a weekly report of your activity. Invite as many as you like.
We can easily create a custom policy for each of your devices. Want to block all images and videos from showing up? We can do that! Ask about our personalized protection policies.
It's not just for blocking pornography. Set up a custom policy to help you manage your distractions. Disable apps/websites on a schedule to help you stay focused.
This is our basic individual plan which covers up to 3 of your personal devices. You can choose to have an accountability partner who will receive weekly emailed reports.Select Plan
Our organizational plan operates on a sliding scale.
With an organizational plan you can offer filtering and accountability for your staff or members of your organization. There is no hardware to install and we will work with you to get everyone set up properly. We will provide basic training and support.
We do not offer a parental control app in the traditional sense. Currently our service is geared towards adults. We don't require you to install an app on your phone, however we do need you to install a configuration profile.
We currently do not support Android Devices. We would like to in the future, however for the time being we are focusing on iOS devices as well as Desktop and Laptop Computers.
While our Guardrails App does install a VPN profile on your device, you are not actually connecting to a VPN. This is a "dummy connection" that allows us to redirect requests made from your device through our secure servers. This connection will always be running in the background regardless of what network you may be connected to.
Sites that you visit while using a private browsing mode are still filtered and logged for your protection
For the most part yes. Their are some exceptions to this as the internet is constantly changing. For example we cannot filter the apps for Facebook and Snapchat as they use a technology called SSL Pinning. Because of this technology their is no software that is able to filter these apps.
Because Apple is focused on user experience and personal security, their is no solution available that cannot be circumvented in some way or another. Because we do filtering on the device level, it is no easy to bypass.
Generally speaking you will not have issues with any of your apps. However, some of our more customized plans can cause issues with some apps. We work very hard to ensure compatibility as much as possible. If you experience issues with a particular app or website, we will be happy to research a solution.
Our basic protection package is two-fold. It blocks content and also keeps a report of your browsing history.
