How do I block adult websites on my Lumia 900?

I have a younger cousin who sometimes gets into my phone to get on porn sites. Sometimes, he leaves it on the website. I worry because I work with teenagers and am afraid that when I unlock my phone, that either the video will play or there will be some horrible picture pop up. Please help if you can.

Hi @dev11 , you can password protect your phone so your cousin is not able to access the device at all, which is probably your safest option.

 

Visit our Device How-To Center, enter your phone's make and model in the top left, and in the left sidewalk you will see the option 'Settings and Security' > Security.  Follow the step by step instructions to add a password to your device.

Filters don't always work and there are often work arounds. Like Julie said, best to just lock your phone and refuse to let your cousin use it unless you are looking over his shoulder.
