Your Porn Search History Will Be Made Public

Anyone who views porn online will one day face having their search history made public, according to a tech expert.

Software engineer Brett Thomas is certain that hackers will one day be able to access anyone’s X-rated viewing habits – and will release the details on the Internet.

He explained in a blog post: “If a malicious party obtained identifiable access logs for just one of the websites that know your name, and view logs for just one of the adult websites you’ve visited, it could infer with very high probability – beyond plausible deniability – a list of porn you’ve viewed.

“At any time, somebody could post a website that allows you to search anybody by email or Facebook username and view their porn browsing history.”

As a warning as to how easy it would be, he added: “All that’s needed are two nominal data breaches and an enterprising teenager that wants to create havoc.”

Web users around the globe had hoped that by watching porn in private or incognito mode on various browsers, they would be able to keeping their viewing habits a secret.

Thomas revealed: “If you are watching/viewing porn online in 2015, even in Incognito mode, you should expect that at some point your porn viewing history will be publicly released and attached to your name.”
