Best Porn Addiction Apps

If you are trying to kick the porn habit, studies show that it is nearly impossible to simply stop cold-turkey, for good, without some help. We found the best porn addiction apps and blockers to make your journey just a little bit easier.

A friend that you ask to keep you accountable is good, but when you’re tempted to open up a porn site late at night, or google something you know might open up some visually tempting images and videos, you need software on your devices that will help block as well as alert you and the people helping you that you are viewing pornographic images.

Technology has come a long way since the anti-virus and filtering software intended to stop malware. In addition, our devices have become extremely powerful and convenient giving us access to anything we want, any place we want, any time we want.

Thankfully, there have been major advances in the app development world that has kept pace with technology and gives us the tools to block adult, pornographic, and other websites that can destroy an addict’s self-determination to quit.

Apps really can be a massive help if you feel like you are struggling alone and don’t have the right support group around you. We chose the top 4 based on our personal experiences, the best technology features, user friendliness, and our friend’s feedback.

We rated them based on ease of use, app design, and of course user feedback on app responsiveness. 

The goal is for these tools to help break the chain in porn addictive behaviors and bring you from isolation to a place that will help provide technological and real accountability partnerships. There are a lot of apps out there that help curb addictive behaviors, but these are the top 4 we have found that really provide help for the mind, body, and spirit.

CovenantEyes has been around in the accountability app game for several years. The best feature they are known for is Screen Accountability™. It is their “patented next-generation technology” which really does redefine accountability. Without going into all the details, the basic concept of the software is that it runs in the background of all your devices and will take snapshots of your screen from time to time and when you are on questionable sites.

The screenshots are automatically analyzed, then processed by placing a really effective blur on them and then those blurred screenshots are included on an activity report for your chosen accountability partner to review. The blur is very effective and you really cannot see compromising images, however you will definitely be able to tell through the image and the website address if the user was on a pornographic site.

The CovenantEyes community is producing a lot of supplemental support material in order to justify the higher price. Free ebooks, white papers, and recovery guides are all part of their program and you do not have to have the app/software to get access.

Pros:

  • State-of-the-art technology
  • Accountability partners
  • 1 million users and counting

  • Up to 10 users per account
  • Unlimited devices

  • One of the higher monthly subscriptions
  • Some negative reviews based on user experiences

Brainbuddy is in a league of its own. As far as UX goes, this app is beautiful. The on-boarding process is extremely helpful and really breaks down the detriments of porn in the best way I’ve seen yet.

Unique to BrainBuddy is it’s “Rewiring” tracker. This app actually tells you, based on your assessment and utilization of the app, how much your brain is rewired.

Victory made our list because of their approach to helping you learn and change your porn addictive behaviors. Victory helps you on a daily basis identify patterns of what is happening in your life and mind when you are tempted or when you “suffer a setback”.

You have the option to request help from a friend with a few simple taps during the difficult times when you really don’t want to view porn but feel the urges and mental games of justifying your “needs” may win out.

With daily check-ins and motivational quotes, Victory is an app that is designed to really help you not only quit your addiction, but to identify what was causing your addictive behaviors to surface and how to get ahead of those feelings and situations before the urges overwhelm.

Pros:

  • Patterns Identification Tools
  • Multiple and random daily check-ins
  • Quickly request support from a friend during difficult times

Cons:

  • Some major bugs experienced but developers are quick to make resolutions
  • Limited feature set, even with the in-app purchase options
  • Built as a app for teens, some users may desire a different experience

 

Conclusion

While no app is perfect, we have found that these apps offer some important protection in re-wiring the brain, healing from the pain that we have caused ourselves and those who love us, as well as set us up for success.

We hope you will also find success with any of these apps or even a different app.

FAQ

Are paid apps really worth the money when compared to the free apps?

While the free versions do get the concept of accountability accomplished, they are free for a reason.  You will run into limited features and find gaps in accountability.   The paid apps will give you the features designed to make accountability run int he background with limited interruptions in your normal online activity.  

Why do I experience bugs and reload issues with apps that I am paying for?

We know it is frustrating to pay for technology and then have to reboot, reset, update, etc.  Remember, these apps run as accountability for what the user does online and that requires a level of interaction with other software you have loaded onto your devices.  So, when other software has a bug or an update, your accountability software will have to adapt.  While the best accountability software does what they can to avoid bugs, no software (even the best of them) exists without mandatory updates, bug fixes, and more.  It will help to view these paid apps just like you do with any software.  They do require updates and fixes from time to time.

How easy is it to cancel a subscription?

 Most of the apps actually make it very simple to get your money refunded and have very limited, up-front time commitments.  You can select the month-to-month option and if you needed to cancel it simply requires a notification and you will receive a no-hassle, no-pressure process of unsubscribing.    

Porn Addiction Apps VS Accountability Apps

Porn addiction apps can refer to any app that helps users who suffers from excess pornography consumption, or who simply want to kick the “Addiction”. We consider Covenant Eyes a porn addiction app since it helps users kick and block porn 100%.

Accountability apps are closer to those like Brainbuddy and Fortify, both who have user bases and groups that hold each other accountable in small chatrooms. This is ideal for those who feel like they are going on their journey alone.
