If you’re concerned about your gambling activity, you can block your access to gambling websites.

There are several safer gambling tools that allow you to do this.

You can choose from:

  • Software that blocks betting and gambling websites
  • Software that blocks any sites you chose and allows you to set access permissions and/or parental controls.

Both are effective at limiting your access to gambling sites to help you stay in control. Some are free, others cost money.
