PornAway is an extracted version of AdAway. I know blocking porn sites sounds kinda ridiculous but I did what I just wanted. It needs root and does the same as AdAway, make changes of system/etc/hosts file and that's all. Library & Compilation credit goes to AdAway developers.
- Requires 'root' privilege
- Blocks country based porn sites
- Blocks porn ads, spammers (Now Ongoing!)
- Block mature contents provided by search engines.
- Doesn't support browsers that provides their own host sources.
If you're a parent you can try this for your children!

NOTES :
-You can't use both the AdAway & PornAway, cause they both make changes of the host file, conflicts! Either use Pornaway to block porn sites or AdAway. Yeah I don't support ad blocking that much. You should uninstall AdAway(if you already have) before installing PornAway(You can keep both app installed).

How To Use :
- Read above 'Notes' first.
- Install PornAway , open it.
- Give root access.
- Press on 'Apply Porn Blocking' with data connection.
- After successfully applying, reboot your phone.

Mature-Safe Activation :
- PornAway now included with mature-safe hosts, if you don't even like safe-mature contents(ex. dating ads) then it is useful for you. It's already enabled by default for experimental purpose, but not recommend as it also removes appropriate ads, disable this hosts if you're already satisfied with porn,porn-ads blocking feature. To disable it in PornAway, go to 'Host Source' , then remove the tick from the first site in the list.

Changelog :
v1.0.2
- Hosts source fixed, replaced with a temporary source, works fine now. Will be updated with the genuine PornAway source later.
v1.0.1
- Extracted from latest AdAway 3.2, supports Nougat
- Extreme Mode enabled, helps to block any mature content provided by search engines.
- New Interface, material UI.
v1.0
-New Interface, material UI
- Initial release.

Download :
PornAway is now available in XDA-Lab! You can get download and sync with updates from XDA-Lab now.

Thanks ! And it is already country based, like mostly supports USA,UK,Canada and Asia. I m still working on it. Without root, it'd be possible, which can be done by a VPN service that blocks porn sites! Will keep your words in mind.

Make sure you have root access and uninstall any version of AdAway before you install PornAway , I've tested it on Marshmallow, Lollipop and CM13, works fine!

This can be happened because of issues in your system/ROM , cause the app fails to analyse data. This should be happened with many other app that analyse data. Try to upgrade your ROM.

Maybe you can post your hosts source as a file that can be used in other hosts managers.
The contrary is also true, antiad sources could be used in PornAway.
The "conflict" is just two hosts managers. If we have just one, hosts file will be smaller and both objectives could be achieved.

I understand what you meant, but I've mentioned it in the post, I don't support ad blocking that much, or I'd add an option to apply the ad blocker in PornAway. You're free to get advantages by yourself!

To get app updates you can follow the provided link or just come here. You can update manually from the app inside, view the FAQ option. You'll get how to.
