YouPorn And PornHub Are Making A Big Change To The Way You Watch Porn

YouPorn And PornHub Are Making A Big Change To The Way You Watch Porn

The main problem when anyone watches porn is getting caught out on it. You want to know that what you're doing is 100% private, and sometimes the solitude of an incognito window can't calm those stresses.

Good news then, for all you stress-heads, as Pornhub and YouPorn, two dominators of the adult entertainment world, are making a change that ensures more privacy.

VentureBeat reports that Pornhub now has added support for encryption, meaning the website will default to HTTPS and give users more confidentiality. YouPorn is set to follow suit on April 4.

"As one of the most viewed websites in the world, it is our duty to ensure the confidentially and safety of our users," Brad Burns, vice president of YouPorn, said in a press statement.

"The transition to HTTPS will go a long way in solidifying our users' privacy and protecting them against various types of malware. The data on our webpages will now be encrypted, making it significantly harder for third parties to penetrate."

This means that, while your service provider will still able to see that you've visited one of these sites, they won't be able to track your actual activity on them. (Nb: This still doesn't make it okay to watch octopus porn).

In the past online porn has been faced with some changes, with governments trying their best to ensure age restrictions on it are adhered to, while a select few campaign against it.

An amendment to the Digital Economy Bill back in November, however, could possibly mean that some of your favourite adult sites might be banned.

The age restrictions mentioned above will require sites to have verification systems on them so that children can't view the material. If the bawdy pages ignore those rule, they could face a ban.

"Only adults should be allowed to view such content," Culture Secretary Karen Bradley said. "We have appointed a regulator to make sure the right age checks are in place. If sites refuse to comply, they should be blocked."

They could also be fronted with a fine of up to £250,000.
