Pornhub Officially Cares About Your Privacy More Than The U.S Government


Pornhub decided to make the change in light of Congress’ repeal of Internet privacy rules that just passed, allowing internet service providers to sell browsing history.

According to a recent Google Transparency Report, Pornhub is one of the 100 most visited websites in the world.

Of those top 100 websites, only three out of 11 adult websites listed are HTTPS.

Corey Price, Vice President of Pornhub, said: ‘Here at Pornhub, with more than 70 million daily visitors, we wanted to continue our concerted effort to maximise the privacy of our users, ensuring that what they do on our platform remains strictly confidential.

‘With the switch to HTTPS we are able to protect their identity as well as safeguard them against exposure to malware by third parties.

‘With this internet communication protocol we can ensure not only the security of our platform, but also that of our users.

‘At the end of the day, we want every single one of them to feel safe and secure on our platform while enjoying our library of over five million videos.’

HTTPS offers users three key layers of protection – encryption to keep data secure from third parties, integrity to ensure data can’t be corrupted and authenticity to prove that users are communicating with the correct website.

 By switching to HTTPS, Pornhub believes that its users can trust that they will have a secure and private online experience (stock image)
