Safe porn: Best practices

Of course, accidents sometimes happen, and even the safest porn sites can sometimes fall victim to an attack. So before you get started, here are some best practices for when you’re surfing, especially if it’s a site we didn’t recommend. If you really want to be safe, you should stick to premium sites, which rely on subscriptions, as opposed to ads, to make money. Not only are these sites safer, they’re also more likely to produce ethical porn and fairly compensate performers. 

1) Use a VPN

Even if you’re not watching porn, you should probably be using a VPN. A VPN blocks sites from reading your IP address, location, and personal information whenever you visit. More importantly, your ISP can’t see what sites you’re visiting while you’re using a VPN. For your privacy, make sure you always use one, especially while banking or viewing a site that you might not want people to know you’re visiting.

2) Use the right browser

Anyone covering their porn tracks knows to use an incognito browser when they’re viewing porn, but the browser you use can also make an impact. For your safe porn viewing, we suggest using Firefox, particularly if you plan on visiting unverified sites. Firefox’s deep customization features and supported add-ons make blocking sites from running active content without your permission and blocking pop-ups a breeze.

3) Don’t touch any ads

Think of the ads on any porn site like the walls of a peep show booth: It’s best for you and everyone around you not to touch anything. If you notice pop-ups on a safe site, close the window immediately. If you accidentally touch an ad, or if a file downloads on your computer, stop what you’re doing and delete the file. A little due diligence will help keep you safe when you get caught off guard.

4) Check your billing agreement before checking out

Viruses aren’t the only worry you need to consider when it comes to your online safety. Some paid porn sites have “suggested offers” included in their billing agreements, services that might start with a $1.99 for a week and $29.99 per month after.” This might not exactly be a scam, but it’s annoying and at least a little dishonest. Always double check before you hit pay.

5) Use a backup email and password to sign up

Porn sites are a natural target for hackers, but sometimes you need to sign up with an email to get access to features you want or subscribe. That’s why we suggest using a backup email and password to sign up. That way if a hacker ever steals a site’s information you don’t have to worry about changing your banking and Gmail passwords.
