Browsing porn on your smartphone requires more than just anti-virus protection. Let us help.

Most everyone watches porn at some point. Men do it, women do it, and we do it a lot. According to PornHub statistics in 2015, 4,392,486,580 hours of porn were watched on the site. That's 2.5 times longer than humans have been on Earth, and that's just one site. Of that traffic, 52.9 percent came from users on their phones.

With so many people watching porn on their phones, it’s important to consider ways to protect yourself, and we don’t just mean stocking up on cleaning wipes. Here are some tips for watching porn safely on your smartphone.

Google

1) Get a private browser

According to PornHub’s 2015 survey, Chrome made up 48.9 percent of all of its mobile traffic. There’s a good reason: Chrome has incredible private browsing options. Unless you want someone using your phone to accidentally see a porn URL pop up in your address bar, consider using a private browser. The recently released Firefox Focus allows for fast private browsing within the app but also allows your iOS device to block sites in Safari from tracking you, giving you cookies, or otherwise sharing your business.

You can also download Adblock Plus for iOS for an extra layer of protection.

Google Play

2) Don’t download any apps that are just for porn

Porn apps won’t be a problem for iOS users because Steve Jobs hated smut, but Android users should be aware. If you see something in the Android store that looks like it wants to show you someone’s genitals for free, run in the opposite direction. These apps often contain malware and, worse, crappy low-quality content. You might be curious, but it's best to steer clear.

3) Use protection

We’ve all been there. You see a sexy site that doesn’t look verifiable, then wake up the next morning thinking “what did I do last night.” Apple users won’t face this issue as often thanks to its closed ecosystem, but Android users should be very careful about malware. 360 Security - Antivirus Boost is a free app that offers powerful antivirus and anti-malware protection for Android devices. It will scan your files, apps, games, and even give you real-time protection. There’s no reason not to use protection, especially when it’s free.  

Reddit


4) Try Reddit

Yes, Reddit. For years Tumblr has been the go-to spot for getting a quick smut fix for many online users, but following its acquisition by Yahoo, searching for adult content became much harder. Thankfully, Reddit has more than picked up the slack. The company’s apps for both Android and iOS are deep and powerful, making searching for exactly what you want incredibly easy. Once you’ve found your ideal clip, GIF, or text you can view it right from within the app.

Reddit’s adult community is one of the best curated in the world. Whether you’re looking for real or made-up stories, professional or amature video, or simply GIFs of your favorite stars, Reddit will allow you to pinpoint your desires to sometimes frightening degrees. Do you want to look at 300 photos of chiseled men in socks? Reddit knows a few hundred people share your love. Take your time and play around in the search function, and you’ll find yourself in a treasure trove of carefully curated filth.

Also, Reddit’s app supports multiple accounts, so you can quickly jump back and forth between your normal Reddit account and the one you use for porn. Don’t get Ken Bone’d. When your viral day comes, make sure your porn paper trail is on a separate account.

Porn Hub

5) Use a respectable smut peddler

There’s a staggering amount of pornography on the internet. In fact, a large chunk of the internet is made up solely of pornography. With so much content available, it’s hard to identify the safe sites from the ones that will hurt your device. Malware can damage your system if you end up in the wrong place with the right naked people. Accordingly, we suggest a little brand loyalty when it comes time to get busy.

Pornhub has built a safe site that won’t bog you down with viruses, features almost every performer and category of smut you can imagine, and, best of all, it’s fast. The company recently switched to HTML 5, meaning no matter what operating system you’re using you’ll be able to find the clip of your dreams without compatibility problems. You might lose out on the adventure of trying to find a secret saucy site, but you won’t have to replace your smartphone.

6) Give erotica a spin

One of the safest ways to view porn on your smartphone is to avoid images. Sites like Literotica has been curating millions of people’s dirty thoughts for years, and the site has even produced a few highly successful erotica authors. Simply swoop in, look at the genres, and pick something that appeals to you.

Written pornography is just as hot, and sometimes more erotic, than traditional porn. Plus you don’t have to worry about someone looking over your shoulder.
