How to surf for porn with complete anonymity

The Internet Porn Privacy Guide

There’s no denying it. Lots of people enjoy watching online porn. Whether they’re watching videos on their favorite porn tube site, or enjoying free cam shows on Chaturbate, more and more people are turning to their tablets, phones and computers to feed their porn consumption needs. And it’s not just men. Lots of women watch porn as well, either on their own or with their partner. This is why you see more and more couple friendly porn sites appearing on the internet. A great storyline for her, and some explicit sex for him. Everyone wins.

Problem is, porn has a nasty habit of leaving tracks all over your computer. It remains in your web history file, images stay stored on your local cache and streamed videos can hide in your settings folders. And don’t forget about your internet service provider; they keep a log of every website you visit. Using a wireless network? That introduces even more vulnerabilities.

Today I want to share some best practices and tools to help keep your porn surfing activities confidential and private. These useful tips are easy to implement and can potentially save you from a lot of embarrassment.

Enable your browsers privacy mode.

Most popular web browsers now feature a private browsing mode that helps reduce the amount of tracking information your browser saves to your local hard drive. Each browser uses their own term to describe this functionality, but they all pretty much do the same thing. They keep the sites you visit out of your history file, and reduce the amount of content that is cached to your local hard drive.

  • In Google Chrome, you enable this functionality by using the “New incognito window”  command from their main menu.
  • In Internet Explorer, you use the “InPrivate Browsing” command located on the tools menu.
  • And in Firefox, you select “New Private Window” from their main menu, as demonstrated in the following video:

Important: Private Browsing doesn’t make you anonymous on the Internet. Your Internet service provider (ISP), employer, or the sites themselves can still track what pages you visit.

Use a comprehensive history purging tool.

ccleaner

Download a history erasing tool.  We recommend the free CCleaner utility. CCleaner provides the tools required for clearing your temporary files, cleaning the Registry, and removing unused cookies from your browser. It will also clean many temporary files from third party software providers such as your Adobe Flash cache.

Use a proxy VPN service

Fast and very private!

Now that you’ve secured your browser, it’s time to focus on your internet connection. Your ISP, employer, hotel staff and public WIFI providers can all keep a log of each and every website you visit. But there is a way around this that lets you surf for porn with complete anonymity. It’s called a private VPN proxy service. Essentially, a VPN scrambles the internet traffic between your computer and the site you are visiting, essentially hiding it from your ISP and the authorities.

I use and recommend HideMyAss.com. The service cost $60 per year and includes tons of features to help keep your online activities confidential. The software installs in minutes and simply adds a button to your taskbar to turn privacy on or off at a click of the mouse. You can select the location from which you wish to appear (great for using Netflix from other countries) and the service even works with your iPad and iPhone.

This VPN service is also very handy for those of you who travel or frequently stay in hotels, as it completely shields your online activities from prying eyes. No more worries of having your email credentials stolen by someone sniffing the network.

Use a travel router when on the road

Many hotels now provide their guests with wireless internet access. But before using their wireless services, be aware of the security issues that are present with many public WIFI hotspots. First, as we mentioned before, the service provider is tracking every website you are visiting. Second, depending on how the service is configured, other guests using the same wireless network might be able to hack into your computer. And when it comes to performance, you might be sharing a single antenna with dozens of other guests, which really slows down your internet speed to the point where watching videos isn’t possible at all!

This is why I always pack a small travel router. I simply plug the device into any internet jack (most hotel rooms have them) and I instantly have my own private WIFI network. I can use it with my phone, tablet or computer – essentially any device that uses WIFI. And best of all, the connection isn’t shared with other users, therefore it’s secure and fast.

I purchased the TPLink travel router on Amazon for $20. It works well for smaller areas such as a hotel room. If you want greater reach, I would consider either the DLink Travel Router or the Netgear Trek. Both of these offer a nice strong signal that can reach quite a distance, but they cost a bit more.

Conclusion

Following these simple privacy tips can go a long way in helping you keep your online activities private and anonymous. And in this day and age, with all the surveillance going on, these simple investments can save you from a lot of potential embarrassment.
