Safari is on the agenda with an interesting problemAs you know, Apple's operating systems iOS and iPadOS have the feature of blocking adult content websites. When we give our phones to our little children/siblings, we can prevent them from accessing inappropriate websites with this feature. But at the moment, this filtering mechanism of Apple has come up with an interesting problem.
Apple leaves users who activate the "adult content filter" on their phone or tablet with a strange problem. According to the problem discovered by a software developer Steven Shen, those who turn on the adult content filter cannot log in to URLs containing the word "asian" on Safari.
On iOS, if you turn on “Limit Adult Website” under Screen Time->Content Restrictions, Safari blocks any website URL containing the word “asian”. Seriously, go try it, it’s unbelievable. I filed a Feeback a long time ago. Nothing changed. Please RT for visibility. @AppleSupport— Steven Shen (@Stevenpotato) February 3, 2021
If you turn on the "Limit Adult Websites" option under Screen Time> Content Limiting on iOS, Safari blocks all website URLs containing the word "asian". Unbelievable! Really, go and try it. I gave feedback a long time ago; but nothing has changed.
Apple's blocking of the word "asian" in the Safari browser is actually not surprising if you look at it. Because "asian" is one of the first terms that comes to mind when it comes to adult websites. Of course, it is not right for Apple to take such a radical decision. Ultimately, however, exceptions, unfortunately, do not break the rule. By the way, Apple's not just the word "asian"; Let's add that it also blocks words such as "mature", "young", "amateur".
