Pornhub Launches Tor Mirror Site For Anonymous Browsing

Share

Pornhub is well known for taking care of its users’ privacy and safety. Now, the adult entertainment website is taking it even further by launching its mirror site for the Tor browser.

For the mirror site, Pornhub has disabled login and the user upload functions, which is a downside. Nevertheless, users can now browse porn anonymously without worrying about their privacy.

One of the biggest features of Tor browser is the protection of user identity by rerouting network packets through a series of other computers. However, this move by Pornhub adds another level to the safety of its users.

According to Pornhub, they took this step to make sure that LGBT users can safely view content according to their preferences:

“The move serves to bolster user privacy, ensure network security, and alleviate concerns about browsing habits among LGBT users whose preferences remain criminalized in certain countries.”

When it comes to launching a Tor mirror site, Pornhub is not the first. BBC, Facebook, and the New York Times made the same move quite recently.

You can access the Pornhub mirror site via Onion URL after you’ve installed the Tor browser on your device.

This is not the first time Pornhub took a step to maintain the confidentiality of its users. In 2018, the company launched a free Pornhub VPN service for phone and desktop, so that users can browse the internet without any restrictions.
