Re: Blocking/Removing Internet Samsung Galaxy 5

What's keeping him from buying a $20 android phone from Walmart and surfing porn on it via WiFi/Hotspot? Or to TeamViewer/RDP into a remote computer and surf from there?

You can't control a porn addict this way. They will find ways around it, easily.

In that case the apps will not work without Internet access so I think trying to block the Internet fully may not be an option.

Would it be possible to put child protection software on it?

Re: Blocking/Removing Internet Samsung Galaxy 5

I would just download an app that has parental controls and just block porn. We use kaspersky, but if you type parental controls into the play store a lot of them come up that are free.

Re: Blocking/Removing Internet Samsung Galaxy 5

Is he smart enough to know that whatever he surfs on the internet via the phone can be seen/logged by the IT folks at his workplace?

If he's doing it on company time, that may be an issue, and his job could be at risk. If he doesn't know this, he should, and perhaps that would be enough to prevent him from using that particular phone for that reason. Or maybe not. Addiction is a helluva thing.

Re: Blocking/Removing Internet Samsung Galaxy 5

I'd advise the following:

1. Hit phone repeatedly with a hammer.

2. Buy an iPhone.

Devious intent tends to inspire a certain level of ingenuity.

I'd be afraid my wife would use those words against me...

That, and that she is not that smart by marrying someone like me.

Forgot a third step... pay the employer for the damaged phone and state that you will purchase a replacement.

That said, I wouldn't trade my Samsung for an iPhone, ever. 😛

He is aware of this and his therapist has explained this in the past. I believe it happened only once when I discovered it.

I looked that up in app store. We don't want any browsers, we want it so he can't access any browswer apps on phone.
