Recently got a new Android device that I have just tried to setup. Any tips or recommendations on how I could further gear it towards possibly being as Christian friendly as an Android device could be?

  1. First off I would recommend you download and use Firefox as your mobile phone browser. I now recommend you use the LC Browser for your Mobile Browsing needs. It lets you disable images and this is a necessary feature for a Christian looking to observe personal holiness. More on this on the link below. Firefox for mobile will also let you block ads which can often be offensive (image ads particularly).

  2. Second you will need to change the default homepage address/url to any one that you trust. I used to have but recently realized they have potentially vain clip arts in the place of their Google logo during special events or celebrations. With LC Browser, changing the Homepage URL is optional as it comes preset to by default (though that is replaceable as well)
  3. Install and use the LC Keyboard instead of the default Gboard. This will keep you from proud Emojis, GIFs, Stickers that Gboard and other keyboards generally features with next to no option to disable. The LC Keyboard offers prediction, voice as well as swipe input above basic key inputs.
  4. Disable the Youtube app. Not only do I find YouTube at large very much Christian unfriendly but find the app version worse as it allow for next to no optimizations. And you can there expect great devastation from video ads even if you may
