GamBlock® was introduced in 2000 as the first software product to block online gambling. Since then other products have come and gone. Only GamBlock®, through continuous testing and innovation provides today’s users the ongoing protection that is essential to stop access to online gambling.
GamBlock® searches the data in each site requested for viewing on the Internet. On receiving the data it checks to see if this is a site which has gambling, wagering or betting facilities. Following a number of sophisticated analyses it advises the user if this is a site to which access will not be permitted.
On detection of a gambling site the browser is shut down and a warning message is displayed. GamBlock® also blocks non-browser based online gambling activities and can be configured to hide its operation from guests.
GamBlock® has done extensive research on the type and number of Internet sites offering gambling facilities. On the basis of this research we are able to determine the type and nature of gambling sites through sophisticated diagnostic methods.
GamBlock® will even diagnose and consequently block new gambling sites that have been placed on the Internet after purchase. GamBlock® does not interfere with the ability to view other sites.
GamBlock® also prevents computers, mobile phones and devices running downloaded gambling software. These "games" are among the most seductive inducements to gambling on the Internet.
GamBlock® does not appear in "Programs" and GamBlock® Features can be moved to a USB flash drive or the like if you do not wish others to see it. GamBlock® is only activated when required and does not unnecessarily occupy the memory of the computer.
The answer to online gambling problems is to get in early and install GamBlock® before the problem starts. The short term effects of online gambling can cost a valuable employee, career, reputation or worse. Problem gambling affects relationships and the lives of loved ones.
