Computer Filters for Women


Is it Halachically required for a woman to have a filter on her computer or phone?




Yes, women also have to have a filter on their phones and computers. Although women don’t have the same, prohibition not to see the other gender, however they are also prohibited to do things that will being them to lust. It is for this reason that women may not watch dirty movies, read romance novels, or look at pictures that will bring them to lust. Unfortunately the internet is more than full of all of the above.

Therefore they also need filters.

Best wishes
