Hi Everyone,

Also WebFilter Pro - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/webfilter/?src=userprofile
The web content filtering addon! for blocking porn.

how do i install these on the brave browser?

Ha! It’s not monitoring the websites, it’s monitoring your web surfing behavior and comparing it to the list of these “millions of websites” it already has, which means it will know exactly which websites you tried to connect to and which ones you did connect to and can sell this info to everyone who will pay for it. I just wanted to point this out, because it totally defeats the privacy point of Brave. (Also, I’m glad that such things are not available yet.)

I’d also recommend Pi-hole as a better solution that can block anyone using your internet, provided they don’t manually select the their own DNS server. You of course need to be able to run it at as a server/service on your network though. In general I find this a much better solution than specific browser based solutions.

Sounds much better, indeed!

I think this is a serious issue and I think Brave should be the first browser that tackles this properly with the new Ad Graph system.

I remember during Brave’s initial stages we got into this debate about this particular topic surrounding anti-porn extensions just being there on top of the bar embarrassingly as a constant reminder sort of defeats the purpose and may even actually introduce/informally educate a younger individual what porn is. I think that’s what you Yankees call an oxymoron. The idea shouldn’t be that it should come across like a censorship tool, despite it can technically be construed that way but I think most us, if not all of us would agree that it is a protective measure and I think Brave’s new Ad Graph system will be an excellent solution to challenge this more effectively and in a more decent way, rather than publishing a notice/banner which reads, ‘No you cannot enter this site because it is restricted and is bad for you!’ You know what I mean?

I imagine parents/guardians are having to worry and struggle against these factors constantly whenever their children are online.

Furthermore, there are several of these types of extensions, most of which don’t seem to be maintained considering their last update.

I really wish this be forwarded to senior members to be discussed with a more moral perspective. What do you think @Mattches?

Many people seem to agree on this notion as well. There was a couple of other links in the past as well by other users commenting on exactly the same issues but I can’t find those.

Thanks to all of you for your input on this.

@Numpty, an “Anti-porn” extension that ends up exposing those who you’re trying to censor it from lands closer to irony rather than an oxymoron. “Anti-Porn extension by PornHub” would be an oxymoron :wink:

We should probably simplify what’s being asked for here to “Content filtering” rather than “Anti-Porn” or “Anti-Malware”. It seems misleading to call it those things because what is really being requested is the ability to block specific content and/or restrict access to specific websites which may include a variety of different content types. Parental controls, blocking Adult content, blocking offensive content block, offensive/suggestive language all fall under the larger umbrella of content filtering. Just want to make sure we’re all on the same page.

I think that it is an interesting suggestion and that it should be more standardized in web browsers. But the truth is that it’s not. Most major web browsers rely on extensions or the systems content/parental control settings to do this job. Now, that’s not to say that this shouldn’t be done. But its hard to see the benefits (weight against the work) of implementing something when there’s perfectly serviceable alternatives that will get the job done.
