Pornhub turns on encryption for safe watching

01 Avril, 2017, 15:35 | Author: Claudine Rigal
  • Browsing porn becomes safer as Porn Hub embraces encryption

Now that might mean very little to you and me, but it makes for a more secure online experience than your standard HTTP protocol that connects you to various websites on the internet.

The adoption of HTTPS will not hide the fact the porn site has been visited but will obscure the particular section of the website that's been tapped into, undoubtedly a minor victory for those keen to protect their right to peruse such material unabated, according to The Verge.

This may come as a particular comfort following this week's news that the US House of Representatives has voted to roll back privacy regulations that blocked internet providers from selling their customers' browsing data without their consent. Enabling HTTPS won't bar ISPs from knowing that a person visited Pornhub, but it can prevent them from knowing what videos are watched. Pornhub and YouPorn, the former's sister site, have now joined that list. YouPorn, the world's #1 destination for unlimited free HD porn, will also be making the switch on Tuesday, April 4.

"Here at Pornhub, with more than 70 million daily visitors, we wanted to continue our concerted effort to maximize the privacy of our users, ensuring that what they do on our platform remains strictly confidential". In addition, HTTPS encryption can also boost loading times, prevent malware attacks, and combat forceful ads from hijacking whole pages.

Sites without HTTPS support - pornographic or otherwise - don't provide these protections.

Even when it is not tied directly to a name, certain types of data can shed light on a person's medical history, financial details, even their sexual preferences.

"Privacy is paramount to us - it always has been", says Price. When you see HTTPS at the beginning of a web address, you can rest assured that all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.

There's a saying in the tech industry that what the porn sites do, others will surely follow.

Pornhub past year launched a bug bounty program offering money in exchange for information about vulnerabilities in its site, and now the popular porn destination is taking its security efforts a step further.
