Online Porn and it’s effect on kids



Our partners at Cleanbrowsing, started their business based on their passion to protect kids online, after seeing just how easy it was for kids to access pornographic and harmful content. By studying this, it became very apparent to them that kids were always just 2-3 clicks away from landing on this inappropriate content. This could happen via an advert, reference or just by sheer accident. The worrying thing is, many weren’t searching for this type of content, but it presented itself.


This is supported by research from Shared Hope International which showed 42% of internet users aged 10–17-year-old, admitted to watching pornographic material online. To support the findings by partners Cleanbrowsing, 66% of this number had viewed this material by accident while they were online trying to access age-appropriate programs.


Webroot, cybersecurity specialist company also found that:-


Every second there are:-

  • 28,258 users watching porn online

  • 372 people are typing the word ‘adult’ into a search engine

  • £2,270 is being spent on porn online


Every day there are:-

  • 37 porn videos created in the US alone

  • 2.5 billion emails containing porn received or sent

  • 68 million search queries relating to porn carried out

  • 116,000 queries related to child porn received


Basically, pornographic material is watched and accessed online, and kids are at risk, that is without thinking what they can see if sat in a public place and adults are watching this type of content in their view. None of us want to think it happens but it does. Our partners at Cleanbrowsing can help you combat this at home to protect your family and if you are at a venue, they can also provide services to stop this type of material being watched on your network.
