Website blocking software limits access to specific websites or services available on the internet. If you think you have a gambling problem, using blocking software can help.
There are two types of blocking software available:
- General blocking software is designed to block any sites you want and set access permissions or parental controls.
- Gambling-specific blocking software is designed specifically to block all gambling related websites and services.
Where to find blocking software?
It’s paramount to conduct your own research to find the best software to suit your own needs.
Some software is free, while others charge. There are also software programmes which run on your phone and you can find these by searching in the App store or the Android Market.
Note: When using this software, please ask someone else to enter the password for you.
Adding blocking software is a start, but you may find that you need additional support to help with problem gambling.
