how to watch porn safely

So you’ve set aside some time on a Sunday night for a little bit of cyber “me-time”. But as the clock ticks, you can’t help but recall the latest data leak and viral strain of malware currently in the news. Is this safe, you may wonder? Not so much a mood-killer as a mood black hole. But everyone deserves a little self-love now and then — particularly in this Covid-19 pandemic era.

That’s why we thought we’d put together the definitive low-down on safe and discreet porn use. So without further ado, dim the lights and light those candles: read on for the low-down on the need-to-know — and the tools to help.

How to Watch Porn Safely – 7 Tips

1. Malware & Porn

Malware and porn unfortunately go hand-in-hand. The best thing you can do to protect yourself is to install a trusted antivirus product: Trend Micro HouseCall is a very good, free scan & fix product. It guards against and cleans up cyber threats, including viruses, worms, Trojans, and spyware.

For even greater protection, we’d recommend Antivirus+ Security, which offers:

  • Real-time Web Threat Protection
  • Cloud-based AI, Smart Protection Network™, which keeps track of evolving threats
  • Ransomware protection
  • Anti-phishing/spam software
  • Performance Optimization
  • Folder shields that protect your most sensitive date

2. Paid Sites Are Safer

Running a porn website isn’t free and you’ll end up paying for it one way or another, whether that’s through being bombarded by ads, or having your details passed to third-party trackers. Some free portals have also been known to install spyware on users’ devices. A paid subscription is probably your best bet. Ensure you have a strong password with a mix of upper/lowercase letters, special characters, and symbols. Report and block users who are aggressive or abusive online.

3. Do Not Click On Ads

If a pop-up ad appears, IGNORE & AVOID. These ads are often malicious and can trigger further pop-up spirals or even download viruses. Often, pop-ups don’t even come from the website but from malware creators. Trend Micro’s AdBlock One is specifically designed for Safari and macOS/iOS systems. It has a nice, easy-to-use interface, and an unintrusive presence.

4. Leave No Trace

Bear in mind the digital footprint you leave in your online activities — particularly when it comes to watching porn. Going “incognito” will help stop the following groups from being able to track your activity.

#1 Your Family:

You likely share a Wi-Fi network or computer with your family. This means that partners, parents, and children will be able to see what you’re getting up to.

#2 Internet Companies:

The likes of Google and Facebook are constantly tracking your online activity, in an effort to know what interests you and construct a consumer profile around you.

#3 Your ISP:

Internet service providers, whether on private or public networks know everything that you search, read and view.

#4 Porn Scammers:

Porn habits are a favorite blackmail tool for cybercriminals to target victims — whether or not they have even infiltrated your device.

5. Use a Good VPN

Going incognito can only take you so far, however. To fully hide your digital footprint you’ll need a good VPN, and we have just the thing: VPN Proxy One Pro.

Available for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS, VPN Proxy One Pro from Trend Micro gives users unlimited high-speed connections and the ability to access any content online quickly, easily, and invisibly.

6. Do Not Download Porn

Downloading videos from a torrent or media player carries huge risks. As with pop-up ads, they may contain malware that can infiltrate and take over your devices — enabling access to your passwords and other personal data.

7. Data Leaks & Breaches

Most people would be mortified to learn that their viewing history and porn preferences were about to be made public. Whether it’s porn site or a dating site, your history can affect your online reputation and your real life. Unfortunately, that’s precisely what can happen in the event of data leaks & breaches.

The catastrophic Ashley Madison ransomware leak is a case in point. In summer 2015, an unknown group hacked the extra-marital affairs website. After the ransom amount went unpaid, 9GB of data from the site was released into the dark web. It contained everything: usernames and emails, corporate documents, sexual preferences, biographical data, and even GPS locations.

Available on Android and iOS, our ID Security app scours the dark web for any mention of your data (email address, passwords, codes etc.) in the event of it being sold or maliciously shared by cybercriminals.
