Porn sites are now blocked in the Philippines

We’ve received a tip that well-known porn sites are already blocked by their Internet Service Providers (ISP) so we checked it ourselves. It turns out to be true.

There’s no formal announcement from any major news agency for now or any word from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), but if you could recall back in 2014 when the government issued a memorandum to local ISPs to ban the access to pornographic site in accordance with Republic Act No. 9775 which lists child pornography as a criminal act, this could be it.

“This website has been ordered blocked under authority of the Philippine Government pursuant to Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Law.”

Just last week, the Philippines ranked 14th worldwide (3rd in Asia and the only South East Asian country) among the top countries that visit Pornhub, a popular porn website. Not only that, the Philippines is holding the first place position when it comes to average time spent on the website.

There’s no confirmed list of blocked websites so far and it still varies depending on your ISP. We’ll update when we get more info.

Update: (6:56 PM 1/14/17) You won’t be able to access popular porn sites, including Pornhub, if you’re on Smart’s network.

Update: Here’s an explanation why these porn sites were blocked 29.

    I’ve tried, most of the sites aren’t working, but this one is working, https://toppornsites.net/, so you can try with that if you’re in the Philippines now! You can thank me later ;)

    idk, maybe screen tourists/immigrants if they are sex offenders (pedophiles, etc)? they’re the ones making and distributing videos and photos… well sana meron din tayong sex offender list tulad sa ibang bansa.
