Gambling blocking software

What is blocking software?

Blocking software is something that can be downloaded on to your device (smartphone, tablet, or computer) that limits access to websites or other services available over the internet. There are two types of software available:

  • Gambling-specific blocking software which is designed to block gambling sites
  • General blocking software which is designed to block a range of websites and can be used to set permissions or parental controls.

Some devices and internet service providers also allow users to set restrictions without needing to download software, and you can find out more about this by contacting your retailer or provider directly.

Where can I find blocking software?

We would always encourage you to do your own research, to find out which is the best product for you. Some blocking software is free, but some do include a charge. MWOS cannot be held responsible if there is a problem with the software you choose.
