Govt. to Curb on Porn Over Android Based Devices

Indian government after blocking certain obscene & porn websites in India is now planning to curb on reported porn and adult content available on Android OS as applications.  India’s telecommunication minister Kapil Sibbal has asked media group to assist government and tell government on how to deal with adult content spreading over Google’s Android platform.

Android is an open platform from Google that’s freely available to app developers, where they can develop apps and distribute it across the world . However, Google have developer program policy that does not allow content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material.

Google has a zero-tolerance policy against child pornography, and as per policy if Google found any such material it will report it to the appropriate authorities and delete the Google Accounts of those involved with the distribution.

Practically, there might be an application available on Android that can be labelled as mild-adult content however there isn’t any application which have fully nude sexually explicit content in it, there are apps though that refer to other adult sources for example an app that only refers to videos available on other sources and doesn’t stream adult content from itself.

This is the reason that other android store dedicatedly for porn content came into existence such as MiKandi, which provide only adult and sexually explicit android apps unlike to ‘Google Play’ store which allow only mild adult content and condemn fully sexually explicit content right away.

On second thought, banning content that’s too over ever-expanding and vast internet is not a solution but change of mindset is, but again adult content over mobile devices make children vulnerable to  adult content which is not good, for that there are solutions like blocking adult content on mobile devices for that go to Google Play store and install Kaspersky parental control and you can control what your children see on mobile.
