JERUSALEM – To offset the burgeoning mobile porn market, the Communications Ministry has taken steps to prevent minors from accessing mobile porn by requiring third-generation mobile devices to employ porn-blocking features.

The directive handed down by the ministry is applicable to Israel’s three cellular providers and requires that all 3G devices block adult content and services to any mobile user under the age of 18. The porn block can only be removed at the request of the cellphone carrier with proof of age.

The main Israeli mobile phone providers who will be asked to help enforce the new law are Pelephone, Cellcom and Partner.

Israel has only had a 3G infrastructure for less than a year. With a population of 6.4 million, the country has a cellular penetration rate of 80 percent.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the new conditions go into effect on March 30.
