6 of the Best Android Apps to Help You Beat Porn Addiction

Porn used to be something of a secretive activity – burned CDs saying “Work” or “Data” being exchanged in college halls, magazines teasing you from the top shelves of convenience stores, a mysterious cardboard box in your dad’s basement workshop, perhaps? But with the rise of the Internet, it’s safe to say that the secret’s out. Porn is ubiquitous, and for some it may even slip into addiction.

Your reasons for watching it are your own, as are your reasons for wanting to stop. But if you have decided on the latter, here are six Android apps that will help break your porn addiction.

best-porn-addiction-apps-victory

Possibly the most strategically-oriented app of the lot, Victory helps you identify patterns in your behavior when you get the urge to watch porn. It tracks your progress through a calendar, and if you “suffer a setback,” as they so coyly put it, you enter some information about what kind of feelings prompted you to do it.

Victory checks in with you throughout the day, inspires you with motivational quotes, and keeps track of every day you go without succumbing. If you’re feeling particularly brave, you can also set up the so-called “Bat Signal” which gets sent out to your designated accountability partners when you feel the urge, urging them to pray for you.

You don’t need to buy into the religious stuff, though. Whether you’re a believer or not, this is a great package to help keep your hands off.

Covenant Eyes is an incredibly powerful app that has taken a bold step in the battle against pornography. When it comes to accountability, the app has its tricks and does its job well. This app monitors what you’re doing online and sends a detailed report to a responsible partner/friend who holds you accountable for everything you do on the Internet. The report contains a list of all the sites you visited along with the ratings, which is based on the content.

The app also has a filter feature that lets you block certain websites that display adult content. This comes in handy when you want an Internet accountability software for employees since it automatically blocks porn. If you have children, the software can help you monitor what they are viewing online so you can block the bad stuff and keep them from early exposure to explicit content. Covenant Eyes is available for Android, iOS, Windows, and MacOS.

porn-addiction-apps-stopfap2

StopFap 2 is another great app that can help you quit pornography addiction. The app is unique in a way but is designed to help you overcome the temptations to watch porn. It has an emergency button that you should press whenever you feel the urge to watch porn. When you press the emergency button, it displays a random fact about pornography that should steer you into staying in control.

StopFap 2 comes with a timer that shows the last time you watched porn or stopped fapping. The more you keep away from bad sites, the higher the levels you get. It also has a community chat system where users can share experiences and motivate each other to quit pornography.

The NF Companion app can help you a lot in your journey to recover from porn addiction. The app analyzes your progress with advanced relapse statistics and keeps track of your current streak and past relapses, as well as streaks of your accountability partners. And if you earn badges throughout your journey to recovery, it will keep track of them, too.

The NF Companion app is designed with the Emergency Urge helper tool that helps to keep those temptations away. By unlocking these tools, you get random motivation posts that keep you in control. The app also calculates the time wasted on porn, then displays the results so you can evaluate yourself and make the right choices.

porn-addiction-apps-x3watch

X3Watch is an accountability software that seeks to help you overcome porn addiction. Just like Covenant Eyes, X3Watch lets you choose a trusted friend, partner, or spouse who will be receiving your online activity report. Besides monitoring and sending your online reports to your accountability partner, the app can restrain access to adult websites. X3Watch is available for Android, iOS, and Windows.

porn-addiction-apps-ever-accountable

Just as the name implies, Ever Accountable helps the user overcome porn addiction by making them accountable to another person. However, unlike other apps that rely on the principle of accountability to help users beat porn addiction, Ever Accountable does not filter questionable web content. Instead, it flags the content, leaving the decision of what is appropriate to you and your accountability partner. This way it gives you the freedom to choose what is right rather than forcing you to behave in certain ways.

There you have them – the best apps to help you beat porn addiction. Though these apps might compel you to behave in certain ways towards pornographic content, it’s ultimately a matter of willpower, self-awareness and discipline. Good luck.
