'Fireproof': New Movie Raises Awareness about Porn Addiction

ATLANTA, Oct. 6, 2008 — In response to the pornography addiction issues raised by the new movie "Fireproof," InternetSafety.com today announced a 30% discount on Safe Eyes®, the #1 rated Internet filtering program that automatically blocks millions of sex-related websites to help porn users break the habit. Porn addiction is one of many stresses afflicting the marriage of the film's Caleb Holt, a firefighter played by Kirk Cameron, who is headed for divorce when his father presents him with a book offering faith-based strategies for repairing his relationship with his wife.

Customers can redeem the discount through October 31, 2008, by downloading Safe Eyes at www.safeeyes.com and entering the coupon code "fireproof" when prompted. The normal price is $49.95 for an annual subscription that covers up to three Mac and/or PC computers. As a filtering and monitoring software, Safe Eyes is designed both to combat porn addiction as well as to help parents keep their kids safe online.

"This movie has a strong message of hope for all couples. It shows that faith-based healing and commitment can not only save a marriage but also strengthen it," said Forrest Collier, CEO of InternetSafety.com. "The 'Fireproof' message that you can overcome your relationship challenges, whether it's porn addiction or lack of communication, is destined to rescue many marriages."

Addiction ministries such as Setting Captives Free and XXXChurch recommend Safe Eyes as part of the recovery process.

"Everyone with access to the Internet is either targeted, tempted or in the trenches regarding Internet porn," said XXXChurch founder Craig Gross. "Safe Eyes provides a practical tool for limiting exposure to sexual content and hopefully curbing one"s appetite for it as well. It's a simple idea - see no evil - that helps wean people away from the habit."

Safe Eyes keeps addicts away from online porn in several ways. It blocks access to websites in the pornography, sex, nudity, and tasteless/gross categories by default, and allows additional sites to be blocked by category (eg swimsuits, lingerie), URL or keyword. The program also individually screens YouTube videos for sexual content, and blocks peer-to-peer file sharing programs like BitTorrent that typically are filled with sexual material.

In addition, Safe Eyes allows "accountability partners" such as a spouse, friend, pastor or mentor to block Internet access altogether at specific times such as the after-midnight hours, check online usage logs for sex-related website visits, and receive alerts by phone, text message or email when users try to access inappropriate content online.

Users can be prevented from removing the software from their computers by asking InternetSafety.com to scramble their passwords or by splitting passwords with a spouse. The product's website blacklist is updated automatically every day, ensuring that new websites with objectionable content are filtered immediately.
