How To Watch P.o.r.n Without Putting Your Reputation And Privacy At Risk

Your visit to an adult website is your own business and to keep it that way, here are some of the best practices you should know about

P.o.r.n has never been more important than now when most people are stuck at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. While p.o.r.n is a welcoming relief for some, it can also pose a threat to your privacy.

Going Incognito

Most browsers these days will try to help you save time typing by analyzing your past search history to guess what you are typing with auto-fill.

While in other cases, this feature can be handy, when you have visited an adult website and there is someone else looking over your shoulder, the browser’s suggestions might be the cause for embarrassment.

According to Bogdan Botezatu – Bitdefender’s Director of Threat Research and Reporting, those who usually have to make public presentations and demos should at least prevent the browsers from recording the traffic history to p.o.r.n sites by going Incognito.

However, the Incognito mode has some innate drawbacks users should be aware of. NordVPN’s digital privacy expert Daniel Markuson said your traffic was still visible to third parties and in some situations, hackers.

Markuson warned that your IP address can still be tracked by your employer and other third parties.

Guard Your Data With VPN

According to Botezatu, a data breach from an adult website can expose users’ transaction history, content preferences, and conversations.

Hackers don’t need to actually have your data to be able to blackmail you. Some users might receive emails claiming that hackers have gained access to your device or recorded you via webcam.

In this case, a VPN service might come in handy but please bear in mind that p.o.r.n isn’t allowed everywhere so check with the local laws to see what you can and can’t do.

The consequences of trying to break the law can be severe.

Protect Your Spicy Traffic

Data collection can bring huge fortune and your internet service provider (ISP) might also work in that industry.

Your visit to an adult website is your own business and to keep it that way, a VPN is your best friend. The service hides your IP address and also encrypts the traffic between your device and the Internet. This means no one, including your own ISP can see what you are doing.

To protect your data, the best way is to never expose it. Services like Abine Blur can provide you with disposable phone numbers, credit card numbers, and email addresses, making it hard to tie anything back to you.

Users’ movements can be tracked in several ways, but the most comment is to assign an identifier to each user and wait to see where it turns up again.

In this case, tracker blockers are the best tools to break the circle. Some browsers like Firefox have their own tools for the job, otherwise, you can go for blockers like EFF's Privacy Badger and Ghostery Midnight.

Some functions of a few sites can be broken with these tools, but you can turn the blockers on or off to fix the problem.

Use Antivirus Protection

Even when you visit an adult website that is careful with users’ data, it can still be the unwitting breeding ground for attacks. In some cases, users might be exposed to malicious advertisements and the best solution for this issue is a security solution in the background.

Security software will identify malicious files and sites before they have the chance to cause damage.

Markuson said many users had been tricked to download ransomware or malware, so avoid saving anything from an adult website to your device and stream content instead.

More Than Just a Pretty Face

A small adult website might lead you into all sorts of scams so security experts advised users to go for the large and reputable sites only.

Markuson said users should check if the website URL begins with HTTPS and there is an icon of a padlock next to it. If there isn’t, the site is probably insecure.

Try to Be Cool

Here are some final pieces of advice. Using a work computer to browse an adult website or using a work-provided VPN is not wise. These practices can get you in serious trouble.

Plus, this’s your own business so keep it to yourself. Trying to involve someone else without their consent is advised against.

COVID-19 has made things hard enough for you and for most people, so be careful with your p.o.r.n habit, use VPN, tracker blockers, anti-virus protection, go Incognito to prevent another catastrophe to happen to you.
