Hi Chaveirim. I have a iPhone smartphone and I have the best filter for it: GenTech. However, the filter cannot seem to block all apps and there are few of them that allow me FULL access to shmuts.

Everytime I want to disable an app I need to call them to restrict the app. But it’s a long process and finally I cannot access it. However, I search for similar app of the same category and find one. I’m so disappointed and feel destroyed due to my inability to control myself.

i would appreciate a reply so I can maybe be more specific and finally get some help! HELP!

Welcome aboard,
How do you know it is your iphone, not yourself?
Can you go back to TAG and request them to adjust gentech to a whitelist only?

The best filter is one you are not testing. You need to figure out how to stop testing the filter all the time.
Look around for some tips how to start living even with the iPhone. (Assuming you can't get rid of it)

You are saying something powerful.  Actually there was a time when my father used a pin on my phone to disable downloading of apps.  It worked for a little while until I decided to find a program to reveal the 4 letter password.

I do suffer from depression (biPolar) and the problem is that I'm too much in bed or home bound. I realize that betalo meviou leidai sheyamus and ein odom chotei elah im kein...

I liked your comment of maybe I should stop looking at the problems with my phone and maybe look into myself.

I do have too much time on my hand.  A good chavrusa would help too.

Filter is a tool to refrain you from accessing the shmutz, but the best tool is you, and a work on yourself...
You could have the best of the best filter of the world, and you would continue to eventually fall if there isn't work on yourself, because every filter can have a breach, and you can access shmutz from anywhere else : if it's not from the Internet, it could be TV, papers... It is the world of today.

In a more practical way : contact TAG, and ask them how to avoid these flaws. And remove the applications that have flaws and find their equivalent without flaws.
A personnal example  : Uber Android app had some flaws (it's fixed now), so I removed the application and I added Uber website in my whitelist to make orders...

​Behatslacha, and stay strong
