Gambling blocking software

Blocking software
You can download a 'site blocker', which can block access from computers, tablets and phones to many online gambling sites, including some sites which are not part of the GamStop scheme e.g. illegal and overseas website.  Site blockers may also prevent some gambling advertising.

We know that you will be more likely to manage your gambling if you combine the use of blocking software and other technical tools like Gamstop with the free treatment options on offer.

GambleAware commissioned an independent evaluation of a number of blocking software packages, from which a report is available to download here.

One blocking software solution, Gamban, is made available at no cost to people getting help from any of the treatment services we fund.  Contact the National Gambling Helpline on 0808 8020 133 if you would like to talk about the confidential support available across Great Britain.

More information on Gamban and technical support with how to use it is available on their website here https://gamban.com/
