Too much porn on Reddit? NoFap has an app for that.

In 2016, NoFap® released a “panic button” browser plugin that blocks porn-focused subreddits. Well, we’ve just updated the plugin for 2018 and it’s better than ever.

Version 1.3.0 brings forth a raft of optimizations to make it run faster, bug fixes, and updates.

  • This version has been reworked to better intercept and divert users away from porn “NSFW” subreddits and threads.
  • An updated optional popup panic button that appears on every page
  • Displays content faster right in your browser window

Download the panic button:

This is a port of our popular “Emergency” in-browser panic button.

Why it works:

Relapse intervention is part of a successful porn addiction reboot. Blocking porn and getting quick access to motivational content can help you change your mind in the heat of the moment, preventing a potential relapse.

This software alone doesn’t cure porn addiction. It is simply one tool. You, ultimately, have to make the decision to abstain from using porn and no software can prevent you from disabling it or using another device. After you use this tool, we suggest that you get out of the situation that’s making relapse likely.

  • If you are in bed, leave your bed after using this plugin and go for a walk.
  • If you are on your smartphone, put down your phone or put it away.

Some people do breathing exercises, go for a walk, do some push-ups, read a book, or do something to “get out of relapse zone.” Once the urge passes, it is useful to think about what led to the urge and what you can do to prevent the same situation from arising again in the future. You might want to post about it in your journal on the forums or connect with your accountability partner. It is also a good opportunity to think about why you are quitting porn and to re-strengthen your resolve to live your life porn-free.

    Is it possible to unblock nsfw subreddits that arent porn? such as r/watchpeopldie? I need my occasional gore, as disturbing as it is.

  2. William, it doesn’t sound healthy that you “need” your occasional gore. It’s probably written with a tint of humor, but that doesn’t change the fact that you are responsible for what you watch online as you increase activity, supply and demand of the content you frequent. You might even impact the world through influencing others in thinking that there are no morals that are worth adhering to – when there are; the morals that reduce suffering and malevolence and increase benevolence and virtue. Through creating traffic on nodes of the web where people “need” gore, you make the internet, and by extension the world, just a little bit worse.

  3. This is one of the best things I have come across while researching how to deal with the NSFW side of Reddit. Thank you very much for developing this and I’ll be looking forward new updates.
