New Internet Filtering Service Empowers Christian Parents to Protect Children

Christian parents have a new weapon in their arsenal to combat the tide of problematic content too easily discovered on the internet. FreeFiltering.org,, designed to block dangerous content from a growing catalog of more than 2 million websites and categories, launched May 1, 2021, as a free service based on simple adjustments to home Wi-Fi routers. The company plans to secure 40 volunteer beta-test families while offering free and premium paid services.

FreeFiltering.org is "designed to make the internet a safer place for souls," according to founder Michael Lee Mason. The father of three was frustrated by the difficulty in using and maintaining parental controls from both internet service providers and device manufacturers. "Our goal is to make sure every Christian family has the ability to protect their home Internet from the 'wiles of the devil'," per the company's website.

Ongoing development of the service is planned along with word-of-mouth referrals between users. Various porn sources regularly repurpose websites to break through parental control settings. FreeFiltering.org utilizes artificial intelligence to automatically redetect whether a new website is pornographic and then block it. "We'll be adding additional block categories for websites that promote values contrary to the historic Christian tradition ... No filter is perfect, but with your help, we promise to get better every day," the startup's website says.

Freefiltering.org offers its free service alongside both premium and patron options furnishing additional features and levels of content controls. "We need families to prayerfully consider upgrading to a paid Premium or Patron membership so that we can continue to offer the free service to everyone," the website states, adding, "tools to educate you on how to become a better steward of your God-given resources by redirecting your spending and investments to companies that don't actively promote evil causes. We'll need your help and input to build the service in a way that brings glory to the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit."
